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.

Most of things reported here are taken from:


Boot kernel/grub

This is the hardest part for noobs and person that doesn't known (u)efi stuffs. I'm going to write a simple guide soon.


The built-in Intel graphic card works out of the box. Unfortunately we can't disable Optimus in the BIOS/UEFI and I actually I'm not able to get it working properly.

Hybrid graphics/Optimus

You can try use Optimus through the Bumblebee project. Please report if you have success.

TwinView / Xinerama

Not tested


Integrated peripherals works fine, external plugs not yet tested.


2 finger vertical scrolling works Out of the box, everything else requires some configuration. You can use gpointing-device-settings to modify all settings.

To enable ?ClickPad behavior type in a terminal: <code>gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.peripherals.touchpad disable-while-typing false xinput set-prop "ETPS/2 Elantech Touchpad" "Synaptics ?ClickPad" 1 syndaemon -i 1.5 -d -t -K</code>

Power Saving

Not tested.

Suspend, Hibernate, Shut-down and Reboot

Reboot and shutdown are working properly, a first suspend test has worked fine (need to be tested deeply), hibernate not yet tested.


Requires the firmware-iwlwifi package. I can't get wifi card working with 3.2 Debian stock kernel, although it works fine using 3.4 from Liquorix project.
