I love archlinux: the last STABLE kernel release + the last STABLE DE release + the last STABLE apps releases. The upstream developers decide what is STABLE.

Uncertain, might need work, I personally don't care, probably a KDE bug:
- Wayland. It should work well, but it causes glitches in KDE.
- OpenGL 3.1 Compositor in KDE causes massive glitches
- "Super+P" KDE popup to change the active video output does not do anything but popping up.

Does not work at all:
- When plugging a headset made for Android into the headphone jack, it does not switch from the internal mic to the one on the headset.
- Android headset media buttons don't work.

Everything is pretty much working. Nothing too serious that is not working. The two things I have found not working are the led dimming of the keyboard lights and the computer system beep. I have been testing this system for about a week pretty heavily and cannot find anything that is really not working. Oh there is one more thing I do not believe the tpm/secure boot is working. I have yet to fully investigate that.

Re: Laptops which run Arch

Running Arch Linux on HP X2 Detachable 10 p000np.

Everything works out of the box except for a weird issue with hibernation.
Suspend works (s2idle), only have S0, S4 and S5.

Tried Fedora and Ubuntu before but not everything worked well.

Just runs beautifully with Arch for an Atom machine with 2GB ram and 30GB eMMC.

Started to love this laptop after installing Arch, previously with Windows it was just a brick as there was no space to do anything with.

Now, i have like 18GB of space free.

It's insane how different it is with Linux.

Re: Laptops which run Arch

clachik, you can try perkeyrgb from the aur, it works on my ge75 raider. Might work for you. I'm not sure about your mouse but for the keys it does a good job, with a bit of configuring.

Re: Laptops which run Arch

I'm using an XMG P-407.
Works very smoothly (except graphicscard).

16GB RAM @ 2666Hz (I think)
Nvidia GTX 1050ti (doesn't work that great (if at all) on arch).

Otherwise very smooth

- Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX200 & Bluetooth 5.1 (up to 2400Mbps)
- Zen kernel

Only poweroff doesn't works fully as it keeps something on, like backlit keyboard and fan.
Anythign else is just right.

Not quite the level of GPU or compiling power I'd like, and the battery life is garbage, but this thing performs pretty admirably for a laptop from 8+ years ago.

Re: Laptops which run Arch

Lenovo IdeaPad S540-15IWL (81SW) GTX works wonderfully under Arch, but the only thing that doesn't work is the fingerprint reader (not an Arch issue, the reader is just not supported on Linux).

Re: Laptops which run Arch

My computer is Toshiba Portege M700.

This is a fantastic laptop that comes with a stylus, and I was successful in getting it to work with Arch Linux! Despite the fact that this hardware is quite old, it still runs Arch Linux very well, even with Gnome!

Re: Laptops which run Arch

Asus Eee PC R101D

10-ish years old, chugging along just fine as a netbook thanks to Linux, Wayland, and the awesome Arch community (the out-of-the-box state hardware and software-wise was just crippling. Chalk from cheese) .

Fn-keys are still a bit of a puzzle - right now I'm using "acpi_osi=Linux acpi_backlight=vendor" which for some reason allows for amixer/light to work properly. I've found an "interesting" systemd service, which I masked:

systemctl mask systemd-backlight@backlight:eeepc.service

This, and using "acpi_osi=" seems to be working best for me. If anybody has a better working configuration, please let me know.

Re: Laptops which run Arch

Thinkpad X1 Carbon 8th Gen

Latest kernel compiled from source (kernel configuration).

I wanted a lean kernel with all modules and firmwares built in and without initramfs. Getting a fully working configuration turned out to be tricky and I had to settle for:

$ lsmod
Module                  Size  Used by
pinctrl_cannonlake     36864  1
pinctrl_intel          28672  1 pinctrl_cannonlake

As I recall, this pin control driver was necessary for the touchpad to work, but if it's not built as a module then it breaks the sound support.

Grub still lets me boot the standard arch kernel in case I want to.

Screen brightness keys enabled with:

$ cat /etc/acpi/events/brightnessup
action=/etc/acpi/handlers/brightness +

$ cat /etc/acpi/events/brightnessdown
action=/etc/acpi/handlers/brightness -

$ cat /etc/acpi/handlers/brightness  


case $1 in
  -) echo $(($(< $dev/brightness) - $step)) >$dev/brightness;;
  +) echo $(($(< $dev/brightness) + $step)) >$dev/brightness;;

Sound volume controls enabled with:

$ cat /etc/acpi/events/volume 
action=/etc/acpi/handlers/volume %e

$ cat /etc/acpi/handlers/volume 
#!/usr/bin/env bash

# Root must use pactl as the user
# See:
pulse() {
  sudo -u '#1000' XDG_RUNTIME_DIR=/run/user/1000 pactl $@

case "$1" in
    pulse set-sink-volume @DEFAULT_SINK@ +10%

    pulse set-sink-volume @DEFAULT_SINK@ -10%

    pulse set-sink-mute @DEFAULT_SINK@ toggle

    pulse set-source-volume @DEFAULT_SOURCE@ toggle

Currently running pure wayland with sway.

The touchpad is working wonderfully with three-finger drag/select enabled by libinput-three-finger-drag (there is a discussion currently taking place about how to merge three-finger drag support into libinput proper).

Everything works.

Re: Laptops which run Arch

Dell G15 5515

It mostly works fine out-of-the-box, but there are a few annoyances:

1. The system beep is crazy loud, and there appears to be no way to make it quieter. I don't think this is Linux-specific, though.
2. I have configured it to suspend when I press the power button, but nothing actually happens when I do that. It does suspend when I close the lid, though.
3. If the graphics is configured in Optimus mode, the display backlight stays fixed at full brightness. This appears to be common to all Linux setups.
4. I haven't figured out how to use both the NVIDIA and Radeon GPUs for OpenCL tasks. I have installed the ROCM packages from AUR, but clinfo just reports zero AMD devices. NVIDIA CUDA works fine, though. This may be caused by the above.
