To access the boot menu and BIOS, use "F1". Disable secure boot from the BIOS.


Sometimes the TrackPoint stops working and dmesg reports a stream of garbage when it is touched. Removing and probing the kernel module solves the problem:

# rmmod psmouse
# modprobe psmouse


With default configuration, tearing is apparent when playing videos. DRI3 and glamor are supported. To solve tearing and use DRI3 and glamor, create the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf with the following content:

Section "Device"
   Identifier  "Intel Graphics"
   Driver      "intel"
   Option      "AccelMethod"  "glamor"
   Option      "DRI"    "3"
   Option      "TearFree"    "true"

Fingerprint reader

Works using https://github.com/3v1n0/libfprint. Bug tracker for fingerprint sensor: https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/libfprint/libfprint/issues/54

Power management

If the device has unusually high CPU usage in idle then it might be an acpi firmware issue. On Windows this behaviour stops after a regular update. On Linux you can workaround by disabling whatever device is interrupting excessively.

Find the interrupting source:

grep . -r /sys/firmware/acpi/interrupts

This might output something like this:

/sys/firmware/acpi/interrupts/gpe34:   30289   enabled  <-- this causes many interrupts
/sys/firmware/acpi/interrupts/gpe35:       3   enabled

Disable it (as root, not just sudo):

echo "disable" > /sys/firmware/acpi/interrupts/gpe34

Now the CPU should idle at 0-2% usage.

Unfortunately you have to do that on every startup. A systemd service can do that automatically for you.

Create /etc/systemd/system/disable-interrupts.service:

Description=Disable acpi interrupts
ExecStart=/usr/bin/bash -c 'echo "disable" > /sys/firmware/acpi/interrupts/gpe34'

Then enable the disable-interrupts.service systemd unit.
