This page applies to the HP ENVY TouchSmart 17-j113tx.


The integrated display includes a Touchscreen. Basic (single-touch) gestures work successfully without intervention. Some complex (multi-touch) gestures could be made to work with a combination of Touchegg and the proprietary xf86-input-egalaxAUR package.

Note: When working with the laptop lid closed, the touchscreen sends spurious touch events. It is recommended to disable touchscreen input when the lid is closed and re-enable it when the lid is opened (using e.g. xinput --disable and xinput --enable respectively). Touchscreen calibration has not (yet) been tested.


The laptop has integrated 4.1 speakers. Stereo sound works successfully from the front two speakers without intervention under ALSA.

The other speakers are not recognised or used by default; they can be mapped using the hdajackretask utility from the alsa-tools package, and it appears the correct combination is the same as for other contemporary HP ENVY models:

Pin ID Override Mapping
0x0d Internal speaker
0x0f Internal speaker (Back)
0x10 Internal speaker (LFE)

Function keys

The integrated numeric keypad is dual-function, and defaults to scrolling actions unless NumLock is enabled. There is no ScrollLock key and there is no indicator light for NumLock.

The integrated Function keys are also dual-function, and default to either system control actions or assigned Functions depending on what is configured in the Firmware Setup Utility (reversible at runtime by using the Fn key in combination). The system control actions are:

Key(s) Control Action Status (assuming appropriate software)
F1 Super+F1 No hardware action by default, but may trigger a software action (meant to be a 'Help' key under Windows).
F2, F3 Monitor Brightness Down/Up Works for integrated display.
F4 Super+P No hardware action by default, but may trigger a software action (meant to switch video output under Windows).
F5 Not captured (activates and deactivates the keyboard backlight, which appears to be hardware controlled).
F6, F7, F8 Volume Mute/Down/Up Works, including the LED that shows when volume is muted.
F9, F10, F11 Media Previous/Play/Next Works.
F12 Not captured (activates and deactivates Wireless LAN and Bluetooth transceivers, with a LED that changes depending on this state).

Fingerprint sensor

Currently not supported by Fprint, according to the project website. The libfprint-gitAUR package may offer some hope, but this has not (yet) been tested on this model.
