Talk:Dell XPS 13 (9370)

From ArchWiki


I would like to add to the "Storage" section of this page. I have a Dell XPS 13 (9370) and it has in it a Samsung PM981 NVMe SSD, the storage section only notes that there are two models, namely the Toshiba and Hynix. BashTux (talk) 18:12, 11 October 2019 (UTC)

Hmm, mine also reports as a Samsung PM981 in lshw and fdisk. I haven't opened the case to check if the difference may be a rebadging of some kind. DarwinSurvivor (talk) 23:06, 11 October 2019 (UTC)
I searched this model and there is a legit Samsung model like this (Tom's Hardware has a review on it), which is supplied with prebuilt machines such as these..... I will be opening my laptop soon as i have ordered some Thermal Grizzly Thermal Pads to get better cooling on my XPS. Will confirm when i do. BashTux (talk) 16:42, 12 October 2019 (UTC)
I can confirm the XPS 13 (9370) DOES also ship with a Samsung PM981 NVMe SSD, As i did open mine up yesterday per my last comment. I have a photo of the Nvme as well. The P/N (512GB model): MZVLB512HAJQ-000D1 BashTux (talk) 11:47, 19 October 2019 (UTC)

Disable touchscreen?

I have been trying to figure out how to disable the touch screen as I don't use it and it's just a nuisance (I accidentally touch things when adjusting my monitor angle etc).

I have confirmed that it is *not* enabled at the BIOS level. I have rebooted several times to double check and the BIOS clearly has the "Enabled" checkbox unchecked. It seems like I do not have a touch screen after boot first, but once the laptop goes to suspend and resumes, the touchscreen is active again.

Removing `hid_multitouch` just makes the touchpad unusable and makes the touchscreen more naive (dragging a finger selects text instead of scrolls, for instance). I haven't been able to find a clear resource on what I can do to disable it entirely. Perhaps some udev rules, but I am not very comfortable with that subsystem so am a bit lost.

Any ideas?
