Notes for the GPD Win3.



This device requires Sound Open Firmware. See Advanced Linux Sound Architecture#ALSA firmware.

Edit, or create, if it does not exist, the file: /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf.

options snd-hda-intel dmic_detect=0

Once done, reboot your device.


The device firmware does not properly initialize the touchscreen, so a patched goodix module is required.

In addition, the touchscreen must be rotated.

Edit, or create, if it does not exist, the file: /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/99-touchscreen.conf.

Section "InputClass"
  Identifier    "calibration"
  MatchProduct  "Goodix Capacitive TouchScreen"
  Option        "TransformationMatrix"   "0 1 0 -1 0 1 0 0 1"

To fix the touchscreen initialization, install goodix-gpdwin3-dkmsAUR and reboot your device.

Screen rotation

This device uses a portrait screen.

You can set the screen rotation in the settings application that is included in your DE.

If you are not using a DE, create /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/30-monitor.conf to rotate the screen:

Note: The Identifier may be different depending on your display driver of choice (either DSI-1 (modesetting) or DSI1 (xf86-video-intel))
Section "Monitor"
  Identifier "DSI-1"
  Option     "Rotate" "right"

To rotate the virtual console, add fbcon:rotate=1 to your kernel boot parameters.

Known ssues

Screen blanking

Screen will not turn back on after blanking if the cpu is busy (example: compiling), especially if connected to external display.

Windows dual-boot Audio Issues

An unknown bug causes Windows to leave the audio device in a broken state on reboot.

This is not an issue for Windows itself, but on linux it is.

If you get no audio or muted speakers or distorted audio, reboot into Windows and shutdown your device from there.

You can now boot linux and unmute the speakers if they have been muted before.
