Configuration

Display

Intel Integrated Graphics (Kabylake 620). Works out of the box with xserver-xorg-video-intel (2:2.99.917 and later). No xorg.conf needed.

The resolution is high enough (FullHD, 1920x1080) that you might want to tweak the DPI of your display, see MonitorDPI for more information on the matter.

Audio

Intel Sunrise Point-LP High Definition Audio Controller. Work out of the box.

Keyboard

By default, the keyboard in the Librem v4 (and previous) expects you to pick the US international keyboard layout, instead of the US keyboard layout. This makes the key above the enter key, normally assigned to \ and | (and labeled as such) send french quotation marks instead (« and »).

The workaround is to drop the following in your udev configuration, say in /etc/udev/hwdb.d/90-purism-pipe-symbol-fix.hwdb:

evdev:atkbd:dmi:bvn*:bvr*:bd*:svnPurism:pnLibrem13v4*
 KEYBOARD_KEY_56=backslash

Then running the commands:

sudo systemd-hwdb update
sudo udevadm trigger

... or rebooting.

Power Management

Hibernation works out of the box.

Suspend/Resume works out of the box.

WiFi

Wireless works out of the box. The Atheros card only supports 802.11-N, not AC`.

Bluetooth

The Atheros Bluetooth chipset doesn't work out of the box without a binary blob. When enabling the radio with Fn-F12, the following comes up in the kernel's dmesg output:

usb 1-3: firmware: failed to load ar3k/AthrBT_0x11020100.dfu (-2)

This can be solved by installing the firmware-atheros non-free pacakge.
