Yoga 2 pro yellow issue on linux / non-windows OS

2014-03-29, 17:22 PM

Dear Lenovo,

 

I've recently bought a Y2P, and after installing Linux, the colors look off. I have googled the issue and it appears a fix was released for windows -- which apparently was already installed on my device as the colors looked good on that OS. 

 

How do I get the same fix under Ubuntu Linux? Is there a fix yet? And if not, is one in the making? When can we expect it?

 

Thank you!

 

Gerardus

I'm looking for information on this as well. I would like to buy a Yoga 2 Pro, but want to be assured that there is a fix for the nasty yellows that works in Linux.

Dear lenovo,

 

If you are too busy to fix this yourselves, you could at least have the decency to help others that have offered to invest their time in fixing this for you:

Thanks.

I don't think Lenovo cares to help it's customers. Unless this gets fixed in Linux, I'll look at a reputable company for a laptop.

Yeah, this is really irritating. Seeing how defensive their rep got in the other thread though, I wouldn't expect much. They picked a bad panel, and used what is probably a really messy software hack to fix it in Windows. Not sure why they couldn't make the fix in BIOS for everything.

 

Though of course the "fix" doesn't even work for me when I'm in Win 8.1, so I don't have a lot of confidence they know what's going on with this anyways.

It doesn't work on linux? I was just about to install linux. I guess not anymore .... This sucks that they can't come up with a universal fix that isn't just a software tweak. Very annoying!

I have had the Y2P for a while, and the yellow issue truly won't be noticeable unless you are going to be doing serious graphic design, so I'd say this machine is still well worth it.

I def agree with Geradus that even if they don't offer a gnu fix on their own, they should offer to help those who are willing to do the work! seems reverse engineering may be in order
