The ''HP Folio 13'' is very well supported in recent versions of the Linux kernel and thus in [[DebianJessie|Debian Jessie]] ([[DebianStable|stable]]) and [[DebianStretch|Debian Stretch]] ([[DebianTesting|testing]]).<<FootNote(Please note that for now this report focusses on the hardware support in ''Debian GNU/Linux''. If you want to use Debian with another kernel (like [[Debian_GNU/kFreeBSD|kFreeBSD]] or [[Debian_GNU/Hurd|GNU Hurd]]) you will hardly find any useful information here.)>> Performance is just great and almost everything works out of the box.

If you refuse to install any proprietary software please be aware that you won't be able to use the internal wireless adapter for Wi-Fi connections (see [[#Wi-Fi & Bluetooth adapter|Wi-Fi & Bluetooth adapter]]). Everything else should work just fine with free software only.

== Mind the ''Action Keys Mode'' BIOS-setting ==
The default setting is `<Enabled>` which means that your function keys are inverted – to actually activate `F1` for example you'd have to press `Fn+F1`, action keys (like volume up/down, brightness up/down etc.) are set to default. This behavior corresponds to the imprint on those keys. However, if you want to change this setting, press `ESC` at startup, `F10` to enter the ''BIOS Setup Utility'' and then navigate to ''System Configuration''.

== Installation ==
Get your preferred 64-bit PC ("amd64") [[http://www.debian.org/distrib/netinst|installation image]] and follow the official [[http://www.debian.org/releases/stable/amd64/apa.html|Installation Howto]] (or the much more extensive [[http://www.debian.org/releases/stable/amd64/index.html|Installation Guide]]). Unfortunately, two devices call for proprietary firmware: If you don't want to install any non-free software, be aware that Wi-Fi won't work; the LAN adapter seems to work well without non-free firmware (even if the installer asks for it). If you want your hardware to work as expected and accept to install proprietary firmware you'll have to provide the two (non-free X-( ) packages DebianPkg:firmware-realtek and DebianPkg:firmware-iwlwifi as described in chapter [[http://www.debian.org/releases/stable/amd64/ch06s04.html|Loading Missing Firmware]] of the Installation Guide. Apart from that you shouldn't run into any hardware-related trouble.

== After installation ==
=== How to keep your processor microcode firmware up to date ===
Even if you keep your BIOS up to date (as described above) you'll miss processor microcode updates released by Intel to correct processor behavior. If you want to receive and apply updated system processor microcode automatically you'll have to install DebianPkg:intel-microcode (non-free X-( ) and DebianPkg:iucode-tool.

=== Workaround for BIOS bug affecting power management ===
Open file `/etc/UPower/UPower.conf` and edit line ''!UsePercentageForPolicy=false'' to ''!UsePercentageForPolicy=true''. After restarting your notebook should be sent into hibernation when battery status is critical. '''Edit 2014-09-21:''' Currently I'm affected by another bug preventing the notebook from being sent into hibernation (for more information see [[#Power Management|Power Management]] and Bug DebianBug:762370).

=== Touchpad settings ===
Click your username in the top-right corner of the GNOME desktop to open the menu, choose `System Settings`. In the system settings window choose `Mouse and Touchpad`. Here you can easily activate `Disable while typing`, `Tap to click` and `Two-finger scroll`.

 * Debian Kernel Bug DebianBug:665493: Kernel fails to boot completely (timeout on modprobe -b pci:xxxx). '''Fixed''' in linux-image-3.2.0-4-amd64 3.2.32-1.
 * Upstream Kernel Bug [[https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=46481|46481]]: Kernel fails to boot with build-in ACPI PCI Hotplug driver on HP Folio 13-2000. '''Fixed''' in kernel v3.6.
 * Debian Kernel Bug DebianBug:692361: ACPI display backlight brightness is set to zero at every boot-up (HP Folio 13-2000). '''Fixed''' in linux-image-3.2.0-4-amd 3.2.35-1. In general, the display backlight is initialized by BIOS, which should cache the brightness value at shutdown and restore it at next boot. On this notebook BIOS reports invalid values, so initially the backlight brightness was set to zero at every boot. For now, a quirk was added to the kernel to ignore the broken initialized backlight and that's why the display brightness is set to 100% at each boot now. '''Update''' (2014-08-03): Since around kernel version 3.14.12-1 the kernel seems to cache the brightness value and restore it at boot time (GRUB boot menu will still be shown with 100% brightness).
 * Upstream Kernel Bug [[https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=51141|51141]]: ACPI display backlight brightness is set to zero at every boot-up - HP Folio 13-2000. '''Fixed''' in kernel v3.8.
 * Debian Kernel Bug DebianBug:695634: linux-image-3.6-trunk-amd64 fails to execute action (hibernate) on critical battery condition - HP Folio 13-2000.

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.

Models covered
HP Folio 13-2000

Overall Status

The HP Folio 13 is very well supported in recent versions of the Linux kernel and thus in Debian Jessie (stable) and Debian Stretch (testing).1 Performance is just great and almost everything works out of the box.

If you refuse to install any proprietary software please be aware that you won't be able to use the internal wireless adapter for Wi-Fi connections (see Wi-Fi & Bluetooth adapter). Everything else should work just fine with free software only.

Important Note

Make sure your BIOS is up to date!

The latest BIOS version is F.19. To check the installed version power on your notebook and immediately hit F1. Updates for this notebook are published at the HP Support Center.2

How to update BIOS

If you have Windows 7 installed please update BIOS as described in the official User Guide. This HowTo can only be helpful to users who decided to get rid of the preinstalled OS.

Be very careful when you flash your computer's firmware and don't blame me if something goes wrong – I don't take any responsibility. If you know an easier and/or better way to update BIOS on this notebook without the preinstalled OS please don't hesitate to edit this page.

  1. Download the BIOS update for the HP Folio 13-2000 at the HP Support Center. After extracting the downloaded archive (it's a self-extracting archive – therefore the filename extension is .exe) amongst other things you'll find a file called 01899.fd – this is the firmware file. Keep it and delete the rest.

  2. For the next two steps you'll need access to a PC with Microsoft Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7. Download the HP Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) Support Environment at the HP Business Support Center3. Format a USB flash drive with the FAT32 file system and plug it in. Execute the downloaded file to extract the archive and start the HP UEFI Support Environment Setup Wizard. When prompted to select the location you'd like to use, choose USB Flash Drive. The installer will rename the partition on you flash drive to HP_TOOLS and copy some files there.

  3. Download PhoenixTool4 (a freeware program posted by user andyp in the my digital life forum). Extract the downloaded archive and run PhoenixTool.exe, then just load your firmware file 01899.fd as Original BIOS. Now look into the directory where you put your firmware file – amongst a lot of other files you'll see these two: RSA.SIG and 01899.fd.DEC.

  4. Copy these files into the directory /Hewlett-Packard/BIOS/New of your USB flash drive and rename 01899.fd.DEC to 01899.BIN and RSA.SIG to 01899.SIG.

  5. Plug in the USB flash drive, power on your HP Folio 13-2000 and immediately press F2 to enter HP Advanced System Diagnostics. Choose BIOS Management, BIOS Update and follow the instructions.

Mind the 'Action Keys Mode'-setting in BIOS!

The default setting is <Enabled> which means that your function keys are inverted: to actually activate F1 for example you'd have to press Fn+F1 – action keys (like volume up/down, brightness up/down etc.) are set to default. This behavior corresponds to the imprint on these keys. However, if you want to change this setting, hit F10 at startup to enter the BIOS Setup Utility and then navigate to System Configuration.

Configuration

Installation

Get your preferred 64-bit PC ("amd64") installation image and follow the official Installation Howto (or the much more extensive Installation Guide). Unfortunately, two devices call for proprietary firmware: If you don't want to install any non-free software, be aware that Wi-Fi won't work; the LAN adapter seems to work well without non-free firmware (even if the installer asks for it). If you want your hardware to work as expected and accept to install proprietary firmware you'll have to provide the two (non-free X-( ) packages firmware-realtek and firmware-iwlwifi as described in chapter Loading Missing Firmware of the Installation Guide. Apart from that you shouldn't run into any hardware-related trouble.

After installation

How to keep your processor microcode firmware up to date

Even if you keep your BIOS up to date (as described above) you'll miss processor microcode updates released by Intel to correct processor behavior. If you want to receive and apply updated system processor microcode automatically you'll have to install intel-microcode (non-free X-( ) and iucode-tool.

Workaround for BIOS bug affecting power management

Open file /etc/UPower/UPower.conf and edit line UsePercentageForPolicy=false to UsePercentageForPolicy=true. After restarting your notebook should be sent into hibernation when battery status is critical. Edit 2014-09-21: Currently I'm affected by another bug preventing the notebook from being sent into hibernation (for more information see Power Management and Bug 762370).

Touchpad settings

Click your username in the top-right corner of the GNOME desktop to open the menu, choose System Settings. In the system settings window choose Mouse and Touchpad. Here you can easily activate Disable while typing, Tap to click and Two-finger scroll.

Detailed status report

Graphics Controller

Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:0116] (rev 09)
{OK} Supported by module i915. Works out of the box.

Audio Controller

Intel Corporation 6 Series/C200 Series Chipset Family High Definition Audio Controller [8086:1c20] (rev 04)
{OK} Supported by module snd_hda_intel. Works out of the box.

Pointing device

SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad (id: 0x1e2b1)
{OK} Gestures support, two-way scroll and two pick buttons work out of the box.
/!\ The hot erea to enable/disable the TouchPad (in the upper left corner of the TouchPad) doesn't work, neither does its LED indicator.5

Keyboard

{OK} The keyboard (including all action keys and integrated LEDs) work as expected out of the box. Please mind the 'Action Keys Mode'-setting in BIOS.

Power Management

{OK} Hibernation and sleep mode work out of the box.
{i} The notebook doesn't go into hibernation mode when battery status is critical (even if gnome power settings say so), so the battery drains, the notebook suddenly shuts down and you lose all your unsaved work.6 7 8 Workaround see Configuration - After installation.

LAN adapter

Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller [10ec:8168] (rev 06)
{OK} / X-( Supported by module r8169. The driver (and therefore debian installer) calls for the non-free firmware file rtl_nic/rtl8168e-3.fw which is part of firmware-realtek. However, for me the adapter works perfectly out of the box without this proprietary software.9

Wi-Fi & Bluetooth adapter

Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N 1030 [8086:008b] (rev 34)

Bug Cemetery

  • Debian Kernel Bug 665493: Kernel fails to boot completely (timeout on modprobe -b pci:xxxx). Fixed in linux-image-3.2.0-4-amd64 3.2.32-1.

  • Upstream Kernel Bug 46481: Kernel fails to boot with build-in ACPI PCI Hotplug driver on HP Folio 13-2000. Fixed in kernel v3.6.

  • Debian Kernel Bug 692361: ACPI display backlight brightness is set to zero at every boot-up (HP Folio 13-2000). Fixed in linux-image-3.2.0-4-amd 3.2.35-1. In general, the display backlight is initialized by BIOS, which should cache the brightness value at shutdown and restore it at next boot. On this notebook BIOS reports invalid values, so initially the backlight brightness was set to zero at every boot. For now, a quirk was added to the kernel to ignore the broken initialized backlight and that's why the display brightness is set to 100% at each boot now. Update (2014-08-03): Since around kernel version 3.14.12-1 the kernel seems to cache the brightness value and restore it at boot time (GRUB boot menu will still be shown with 100% brightness).

  • Upstream Kernel Bug 51141: ACPI display backlight brightness is set to zero at every boot-up - HP Folio 13-2000. Fixed in kernel v3.8.

  • Debian Kernel Bug 695634: linux-image-3.6-trunk-amd64 fails to execute action (hibernate) on critical battery condition - HP Folio 13-2000. Invalid: This is not a kernel bug but a BIOS bug. If you set critical battery level to 2 percent in Microsoft Windows 7 (default is 5 percent) you'll have the same problem. The vendor refuses to fix this bug and told me my notebook 'works as designed', so there's no hope that this bug will be fixed.

  • Upstream Kernel Bug 52111: Incorrect battery levels on HP Folio 13-2000. Invalid: This is not a kernel bug but a BIOS bug. See above.

  • Debian Kernel Bug 701050: Wrong battery capacity values on HP Folio 13-2000. Invalid: This is also a BIOS bug (or another symptom of the same BIOS bug). When you check the battery information in Windows with 'powercfg -energy' you'll get the same values as reported by the kernel (ENERGY_FULL_DESIGN is always the same as ENERGY_FULL).

  • Upstream Kernel Bug 54241: Wrong battery capacity values on HP Folio 13-2000. Invalid: Not a kernel bug but a BIOS bug. See above.

  • Debian Kernel Bug 684186: Kernel doesn't produce any power related uevents on HP Folio 13-2000. Fixed in linux-image-3.10-2-amd64 3.10.5-1.

  • Upstream Kernel Bug 54621: Kernel doesn't produce any power related uevents on HP Folio 13-2000. Fixed in kernel v3.11.

  • Debian Kernel Bug 683777: Some multimedia/action keys don't work. Fixed in linux-image-3.10-2-amd64 3.10.5-1.

  • Upstream Kernel Bug 43097: Screen brightness and other Fn keys do not work on HP Folio 13. Fixed in kernel v3.11.

  • Debian GNOME Bug 684331: Video out media-key doesn't work as expected. Fixed in gnome-shell 3.8.4-4.

  • Upstream GNOME Bug 687068: Video out media-key doesn't work as expected. Fixed in gnome 3.8. In prior releases also the notebook's action key 'fn+F1' (help) was affected by this bug because it is a shortcut for 'Win+F1' and GNOME Shell ate the 'Win'-part of the shortcut because that's what it used to show the overview.

  • Upstream Kernel Bug 70991: Mute LED on HP Folio 13-2000 doesn't work. Fixed in kernel v3.14.

  • Debian GNOME Bug 743810: Visual artifacts in gnome shell activities view. Fixed in gnome-shell 3.12.2-3.

Footnotes

  1. Please note that for now this report focusses on the hardware support in Debian GNU/Linux. If you want to use Debian with another kernel (like kFreeBSD or GNU Hurd) you will hardly find any useful information here. (1)

  2. HP Folio 13-2000 Notebook-PC Support at Hewlett-Packard's Support Center (2)

  3. Find and download the HP Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) Support Environment for the HP Folio 13-2000 (3)

  4. Find and download the freeware program PhoenixTool (4)

  5. Debian Xorg Bug 609903: Enable LEDDoubleTap feature; Debian Xorg Bug 683762: On/Off button & LED indicator doesn't work on HP Folio 13 - 2000; Upstream Xorg Bug 39055: Can't disable touchpad by tapping on hot-area on touchpad; Upstream Kernel Bug 70201:Touchpad status LED on HP Folio 13-2000 doesn't work (5)

  6. BIOS Bug: When the battery is discharging and reaches a low charging level the reported values (percentage, time remaining) jump up and down until the battery drains. Since I was able to reproduce this bug in Windows 7 by changing the 'critical battery level' value to 2 percent this seems to be a firmware bug. HP support told me that I simply shouldn't manipulate the Windows default settings and that the notebook 'works as designed' – so there's no hope that the vendor will fix this issue. (6)

  7. BIOS Bug: The BIOS will always report the same values for ENERGY_FULL_DESIGN and ENERGY_FULL, thus the reported battery capacity will always be 100%. (7)

  8. Debian UPower Bug 762370: upower fails to execute action (HybridSleep) on critical battery condition (8)

  9. Debian Installer Bug 684968: debian-installer requests non-free firmware for a device that works just als well without it (9)
