The Acer Swift 3 uses the Intel Evo platform and a MIPI IPU6 camera, which has had little success in operating on Linux systems. Intel has available drivers, but these drivers require special userspace libraries and are not compatible with V4L2.


The firmware interface on the Acer Swift 3 is simple and keyboard-oriented, so it should be trivial to use with OCR devices.

Reason: The possibility of updating the UEFI with with fwupd should be documented here. (Discuss in Talk:Acer Swift 3 SF314-512)
