Backlight adjustment does not work out of the box, the keycodes are correctly supported but you've to create a helper script to echo the change values into '''/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:02.0/drm/card0/card0-eDP-1/intel_backlight/brightness'''.

{{{

A configuration for fluxbox to adjust the speaker level you can use something like this

XF86AudioLowerVolume :ExecCommand amixer set Master 2dB- unmute
XF86AudioRaiseVolume :ExecCommand amixer set Master 2dB+ unmute

 (not covered yet) The Clickpad is a pain in the ass. First of all it requires post jessie xorg synaptics drivers. Currently, running on Debian/unstable, it hangs from time to time or the cursor goes wild. To simulate a middle mouse button for proper cut&paste within X you can use the following configuration in ''/etc/X11/xorg.conf''

Translation(s): none

DebianOn is an effort to document how to install, configure and use Debian on some specific hardware. Therefore potential buyers would know if that hardware is supported and owners would know how get the best out of that hardware.

The purpose is not to duplicate the Debian Official Documentation, but to document how to install Debian on some specific hardware.

If you need help to get Debian running on your hardware, please have a look at our user support channels where you may find specific channels (mailing list, IRC channel) dedicated to certain types of hardware.

Important Note

Before you can start the installation you've to disable secure boot in the UEFI(BIOS replacement thingy). To be allowed to disable secure boot you've to configure a supervisor password.

Configuration

Display

13.3" FHD display (none glare) powered by Intel Haswell ULT, should be Intel HD 4400. HDMI (fullsize) is available as a connector for an external display. The Xorg packages released with jessie worked but the Clickpad was still unsupported. Post jessie packages from unstable work fine. Backlight adjustment does not work out of the box, the keycodes are correctly reported, but you've to create a helper script to echo the change values into /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:02.0/drm/card0/card0-eDP-1/intel_backlight/brightness. Sample script "brightness" is attached, to be used with fluxbox for example like this:

~/.fluxbox/keys ...
XF86MonBrightnessUp :ExecCommand sudo /usr/local/sbin/brightness up
XF86MonBrightnessDown :ExecCommand sudo /usr/local/sbin/brightness down

Audio

Intel HD. Default settings activate HDMI audio as primariy output. To change that create a module configuration for the snd_hda_intel kernel module.

echo "options snd_hda_intel index=1" > /etc/modprobe.d/alsa.conf

A configuration for fluxbox to adjust the speaker level you can use something like this

~/.fluxbox/keys ...
XF86AudioMute :ExecCommand amixer set Master toggle
XF86AudioLowerVolume :ExecCommand amixer set Master 2dB- unmute
XF86AudioRaiseVolume :ExecCommand amixer set Master 2dB+ unmute

Mouse

The Clickpad is a pain in the ass. First of all it requires post jessie xorg synaptics drivers. Currently, running on Debian/unstable, it hangs from time to time or the cursor goes wild. To simulate a middle mouse button for proper cut&paste within X you can use the following configuration in /etc/X11/xorg.conf
