All you need is to disable Secure Boot and install Arch Linux as usual, Legacy install is also possible


The screen is very PWMed, so you might need to fix it. Also TearFree video works great


To work with sensors you need iio-sensor-proxy. thinkpad-yoga-scripts-gitAUR also provides service for ambient light sensor. With iio-sensor-proxy while turning into tablet mode touchpad and keyboard are automatically disabled on KDE Plasma 5.13.3.

Power management

Battery functions like charging thresholds can be controlled using the script tpacpi-batAUR together with the kernel module acpi_call. The TLP power saving tool supports using acpi_call as backend for setting the thresholds as well.

After installing iio-sensor-proxy the device is immediately waking after suspending. The soloution is to disable XHC in wake events

# echo XHC > /proc/acpi/wakeup
