Review of Linux Compatibility

The Lenovo IdeaPad FLEX 15 is a multitouch notebook with a 300° rotatable display. The notebook is equipped with a 15.6 inch HD multitouch display (1366×768 dpi) in 16:9 widescreen ratio. A Intel HD Graphics 4400 chipsatz is used as graphics card.

Ubuntu 13.10 was successfully installied on the FLEX15. However, not all components are supported flawlessly by this Linux version:

Graphic:

The integrierated Intel graphik chipsetz is automatically supported by the i915 kernel module:

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation Haswell-ULT Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:0a16] (rev 09)
Subsystem: Lenovo Device [17aa:3801]
Kernel driver in use: i915
Kernel modules: i915

In some cases, the display stays dark while the Linux system boots. This can be prevented by setting the display brightness in the file /etc/rc.local. It is necessary to add the following line in this file before the last entry of the file (i.e. “exit 0″):

echo 85 > /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/brightness

Touchpad

The Touchscreen is automatically recognized and supported. However, the integrated touchpad is not fully supported under Ubuntu 13.10 (see user question). The touchpad supports the left and right click, but does not support scrolling gestures and multitouch gestures:
