Fixes

All models

Touchscreen

If you are using Xorg, create the file: /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/99-touchscreen.conf to rotate the touchscreen.

/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"
EndSection

Mute Key

The mute key does not send a release code. To fix it, create a new udev hwdb file under /etc/udev/hwdb.d/, and configure the key to trigger an automatic release event.

/etc/udev/hwdb.d/90-gpd-rules.hwdb
evdev:atkbd:dmi:bvn*:bvr*:bd*:svnGPD:pnG1619-01:pvr*
 KEYBOARD_KEY_a0=!mute

2021 models

Screen rotation

This device uses a portrait screen.

If you are using Xorg, 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))
/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/30-monitor.conf
	
Section "Monitor"
	
  Identifier "DSI-1"
	
  Option     "Rotate" "right"
	
EndSection
	

To rotate the virtual console, add fbcon:rotate=1 to the Kernel parameters.
