Reason: fwupd support should be mentioned per Help:Laptop page guidelines#"Firmware" section as this laptop seems to be supported. (Discuss in Talk:Lenovo ThinkPad T460s)

See the relevant forum post. You can either move back to a <4.8 kernel by using linux-lts, or add the following parameter to your kernel command line, which seems to help (it disables S-Video, but there is no such connector on a T460s):



There is no "beep" input to the snd_hda_intel device, so beeps generated by terminal emulators etc. are not played. As a workaround, PulseAudio can be configured to pick up X11 bell events, see PulseAudio#X11 Bell Events.

If the sound quality is bad, updating /etc/modprobe.d/modprobe.conf with

options snd-hda-intel model=tpt460

may improve it. These options are documented [1][2] in the Linux kernel.

Fingerprint reader

See Lenovo ThinkPad T460p#Fingerprint reader; the T460s and T460p share the same fingerprint reader.


The mouse cursor is jumpy with libinput as described in [3] and [4]. A workaround is to use the Synaptics driver. The trackpoint can also be disabled in the BIOS, but doing so will disable the physical mouse buttons as well.

Function keys

Reason: A function keys table should be added. See also Lenovo ThinkPad T450(s)#Function keys. These laptop models have the exact same key combinations (and keyboards), so it may be preferable to just link to the section instead of duplicating function key information. (Discuss in Talk:Lenovo ThinkPad T460s)

Fn+Esc to enable FnLk which will make your function keys work.
