Lenovo S10-3c keyboard Ubuntu Linux

Dear All,

One of the finest things that ideapad give us is the portablity and the use in varied conditions. And, this pleases the Linux fans the most. But, one of the most regular problem has been found with Ideapad S10-3c. Its keyboard is not detected. Although some solutions are provided, but in the end there is common opinion is that it has very uncomfortable bios.


My earnest request with the Lenovo community is to please take a look at this issue and help us relieve from very unpleasant situation. Some links to discussion are pasted below.

Thanks and regards,

Re: S10-3C & linux & keyboard

Hi, I would like to inform those who are not aware of the progress that the keyboard issue is resolved.


If you click the link provided in message 22 in this thread on the bug and scroll down to the end, you will find that a solution is provided to send a signal to turn on the keyboard with acpi ON (ie no need to add the acpi options in grub).  This will enable the power manager in linux to work and hence allow a fully functional mobile application.  A real success.


Still, the webcam is not working, but that is less frustrating.
