=== Power Saving ===

For power saving you can try DebianPkg:tlp which works well (~6-7 hours on battery mode) or use DebianPkg:powertop to optimize your power consumption.

=== Fingerprint reader ===

The device Focaltech is not supported by fprint yet however you can check from time to time the [[https://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=fprint|experimental fprint releases]].

Installation

If you need networking use the non-free install media to avoid any issues.

Configuration

Display/GPU

The built-in Intel UHD 615 graphic card works out of the box with the modesetting driver but it will also work withe the old intel driver xserver-xorg-video-intel.

If you have a graphical corruption at the top of the screen boot the kernel with i915.enable_fbc=0, See Xorg Bug 108085.

If you want to remove warnings about missing firmware(i915/glk_dmc_ver1_04.bin) install intel-microcode, iucode-tool and firmware-misc-nonfree

Screen Rotation

Framebuffer rotation

If you want to use the framebuffer console in landscape mode add the following to your Kernel commandline:

fbcon=rotate:1

Don't forget to run update-grub after adding this to your grub configuration.

Xorg rotation

To launch Xorg always in landscape mode add this file to your /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d dir:

20-defaultrotatescreen.conf

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier   "eDP1"
        Option       "rotate" "right"
EndSection

If this fails(sometimes it is called eDP-1) list your active output with: xrandr --listactivemonitors

You also need to rotate the touchscreen with another file:

21-defaultrotatetouchscreen.conf

Section "InputClass"
    Identifier "GoodixTouchscreen"
    MatchProduct    "Goodix Capacitive TouchScreen"
    Option    "TransformationMatrix" "0 1 0 -1 0 1 0 0 1"
EndSection

Tablet/Yoga mode

You might can use linux_detect_tablet_mode to turn off the keyboard in tablet/Yoga mode

Network

WiFi/Bluetooth

Requires the firmware-iwlwifi package.

Hibernation

If you install Linux on the eMMC or sdcard make sure to use a swapfile instead of a swap partition

Power Saving

For power saving you can try tlp which works well (~6-7 hours on battery mode) or use powertop to optimize your power consumption.

Fingerprint reader

The device Focaltech is not supported by fprint yet however you can check from time to time the experimental fprint releases.
