I installed manjaro gnome yesterday on my Thinkpad Helix (EDIT: 1st gen, Core-i7-3667U), it mostly works without problems, but I’ve found multiple problems:
The touchpad and trackpoint after un- and redocking doesn’t work, this issue is already described on the post forum[dot]manjaro[dot]org/t/thinkpad-helix-1st-generation-several-configuration-issues/27256 , but nobody has answered there yet.
The screen rotation lock button and Windows (super) button on the tablet part work without problems, until the tablet is undocked. These two buttons only work with the keyboard attached, and I can’t figure out why. EDIT: It appears, that all buttons, including power and volume buttons, are not functional in undocked mode.
EDIT: -> Regarding the two issues above, i checked ‘xinput list’, but the trackpad, trackpoint and extra buttons show up, also when unattached (which makes no real sense, because the trackpad and the trackpoint are disconnected at that point)
- EDIT: Found another problem: The on-screen keyboard doesn’t work for putting in passwords for higher privileges (login from lockscreen, installing packages over pamac)
I’m new to Linux and want to learn more, so I hope someone can help me here, and point out issues (not just about my laptop, but also about this post, I’m new to this forum).
