Re: [Guide] X1 Carbon 7th Generation Ubuntu compatability

Ah OK, thanks very much for the info.  I'll keep an eye on the bug thread and test further 5.4.x releases, but I don't think I'm at the build-a-patched-kernel level yet.

I asked earlier about a way to install that trackpad firmware on a machine that doesn't have a Windows boot. I finally managed to install the firmware by making a Windows to Go stick using Rufus on a borrowed Windows machine. The process was very picky about the USB stick used. I documented the steps (and a bunch of other things I tried unsuccessfully first): http://shallowsky.com/blog/linux/exe-firmware-on-linux.html (will this forum let me post a link?)

沒有考慮使用 ubuntu 18.04 嗎 ? 因為 ubuntu 19.04 官方宣布只支援到 2020, 而其實 ubuntu 18.04 才是當前 ubuntu 的主力。大家可參閱 (https://ubuntu.com/about/release-cycle) 。我是用 Lenovo x1c 7th,一直想把系統換到 ubuntu,在這裡我似乎看到 ubuntu 的可行性。感謝你們提供 lifprint 可查閱確認指紋辨識的支援,我發現 ID 是存在內容的 (

) ,還有 電池能力及蓋上螢幕的睡眠能力,打開蓋子能及時喚醒。這些也都是我需要的。謝謝你們。我把相關資源整理好,就要將這個包著一層又一層的 windows 換成唯一的 ubuntu 18.04 了 ~

I updated and verified that the speakers and mic work with kernel 5.4.2

Just for a reference in this post. Once the new Synaptics Prometheus firmware has been released to LVFS testing, now all internal devices work flawlessly on ThinkPad Carbon X1 Gen 7. Along with Fibocom LTE modem, and propper support of sound card you can enjoy the laptop fully now :)

What is LVFS @dominiksito?
Any link/guide to install this firmware?
Also for the mic afaics we still need to build the kernel ourselves, or did I miss something?

Hey guys, 

I upgraded my kernels attempting to fix microphone and lost access to the audio & touchpad in addition to the mic. Currently in Windows... hoping to boot back to ubuntu when this is fixed, has anyone had recent success with all 3(audio,mic,touchpad)?
