Hi, I am currently trying to use Manjaro GNOME Edition (17.1.5) on an Acer Spin 1 SP111-32N.
The Acer Spin 1 is a convertible 2-1 laptop running Windows 10. It is powered by an Intel Pentium N4200 Apollo-Lake.
I would like to keep Windows 10 on the internal eMMC and therefore installed Manjaro on an 128GB USB Stick (2 partitions, 1 encrypted with LUKS). The install works without any issue and Manjaro boots. Most of the hardware, WiFi, Bluetooth, … is also working.
Unfortunately I have some issues I can’t resolve:
Autorotate does not work. I tried iio-sensor-proxy from the AUR repo. After installing and rebooting the display is flipped 90° in the wrong direction. Flipping back does not work - the sensors do not react. I tried the newest Fedora Rawhide. With Fedora the flipping is functional, but also inverted (landscape and portrait mode).
Tablet Mode: If the Laptop is folded into a tablet the keyboard and touchpad is correctly disabled. After folding back to laptop mode the keyboard and touchpad stay disabled. The touchscreen is the whole time only working as an normal pointing device (no multitouch)
I tried the suggested steps mentioned in the Arch Wiki without success: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Tablet_PC#Tablet_mode
The script fails with the message: no sensors detected
The normal touchpad has also an issue. If I move slowly from the outer border of the touchpad to the center, the cursor does not move. This happens from every border side. Moving reverse from the center to the border works correctly. I am using the default libinput. If I install xf86-input-synaptics the touchpad has no issues - but Arch Wiki does suggest not to use the old package.
Suspend is not working. Choosing suspend from the menu or closing the lid do not bring the laptop into suspend mode. Maybe this is related to the USB install.
Overall I am pretty satisfied with Manjaro. I came from Fedora, but have to admit the start with Manjaro is more comfortable.
I would be glad if someone could give me an advice to resolve these issues.
