About Screen Brightness
For me this is working:
i3 4.14.1 window manager
action=DISPLAY=:0.0 sudo -u eike xbacklight -inc 5
I have not installed acpilight. So this may be not necessary anymore.
Can anyone confirm?
When this configuration was set to "Both", fwupd did not trigger any upgrades. It was only resolved once this configuration was set to "UEFI Only". Can someone please confirm, so that we can update both sections UEFI and fwupd on this page? —This unsigned comment is by Iron houzi (talk) 08:53, 11 February 2019 (UTC).

xf86-video-intel broken, not needed anymore
As I encountered today, xf86-video-intel is broken with 5.4.8.a-1 since it leads to a complete system freeze(changing tty not possible, hard reset needed) when a QT application is opened. It might behave that way with other applications too, can't confirm it.
Falling back to the suggested modesettings of Xorg did the trick and the system is working stable again. Also backlight is working with modesettings. Should we get rid of the hint of using xf86-video-intel?
Fingerprint Reader: Linux-native way of initializing...
I haven't seen this in the latest releases of libfprint2, but there is a method for enrolling fingerprint data into the Validity Sensors 138a:0097 device only using Linux. The way to do so is here:
Now, this didn't work for me, as the fingerprint device returns a data structure that doesn't match the expected size/length. Someone forked this project and provide a fix for this:
I'm still waiting for this to be accepted upstream, but you shouldn't need Windows anymore to initialize this fingerprint reader. I did have to set up a pacman hook to rebuild and reinstall this patched libfprint project every time a new kernel is installed, but my fingerprint reader has been working like a charm ever since.
- The method listed on the wiki page is outdated. However I was able to get it working with a different AUR package AUR and using the repository README to get it working. So the wiki page should probably be updated.

@Incon: Can you update the wiki with the steps you used with AUR? I will probably adopt this method since my method isn't very well maintained. I don't think I need to initialize my fingerprint reader, but I wouldn't mind keeping fprintd up to date (I have "IgnorePkg = fprintd" in /etc/pacman.conf for now).

With linux 6.0.1 my hacked version of libfprint no longer works. It loses the connection to the fingerprint reader almost immediately (the LED lights up for maybe 250ms and then crashes). So I installed README.md. I will update the wiki page with this information. Ectospasm (talk) 02:34, 20 October 2022 (UTC)AUR and followed that project's
Laptop Stub Discussion
- I have just updated the template to reflect the reason why this page was flagged. "Stub" was indeed a bit generic. The sub sections for the variations of this model can be a bit problematic since this is a special case but they only contain useless
lspcidumps anyways and can be removed in my opinion.
