This is really good new indeed! However, not working as it should on Ubuntu 20.04. I am able to created finger prints that works when I log out and in again, but as soon as I reboot they are gone. Is this only for me, or for others also? Would be great to get it to survive a reboot.

Hello,

I am running Ubuntu 20.04 and I am not having this issue.

If not already done, try to run the following commands in order to activate the fingerprint reader in pam :

 

sudo pam-auth-update

 

and select fingerprint authentication

 

then reboot

 

Hope this helps

Oh yes, that did the trick. Had to enable fingerprint for login and now it works after reboot. Thank you so much!

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

Has anyone gotten all four speakers working in Ubuntu 20.04?

 

I'm seeing the same thing sbmw described back on 04-26: when I upgraded to 20.04 the built-in mic started working, but now pavucontrol only shows one profile for the speakers, and that profile only has two speakers. The sound works but is tinny, no bass at all: it's worse than it was under 19.10.

 

I've been putting up with it since I have external speakers I can use if I want to play music, hoping someone else would post a fix. But it seems strange that no one has figured out how to get all four speakers working. Are sbmw and I the only people seeing this on 20.04, and somehow everybody else has the full surround sound?

 

I found a guide for Arch, https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=249900 but Arch apparently has an updated sof-firmware package that fixes this, which Ubuntu doesn't have.

I'm seeing the same thing on Ubuntu 20.04. Not surprise Arch has the fix first. They almost always do before anyone else. Let's hope for an update for us on Ubuntu also in the not too distant future.

Yeah, I'm still having the same issues with speakers that I reported before.  No attempts to fix it have worked.

 

I also have the exact issue that orclex reported where the Prometheus fingerprint device isn't listed (but I have the correct Synaptics hardware).  However orclex managed to get a fwupd to work in the end but I've had no luck.

 

It's all starting to get pretty frustrating.  Almost a year after this thread was started and we still have all these dramas with a laptop I specifically bought as Lenovo certified it for Ubuntu 18.04...

I didn't change anything else than system upgrades (Kubuntu 20.04) and 

fwupdmgr get-updates

 

After latest system firmware upgrade I could also upgrade and use the fingerprint sensor device. Unfortunately probably since that upgrade my Lenovo RJ45 network  adapter is not recognized anymore?! Anyone else with that problem?

Others have been playing around to fix the four speaker issue, and the lack of bass sound. Most of this discussion is in this (very long) gist. You can try this:

 

/usr/bin/hda-verb /dev/snd/hwC0D0 0x17 SET_CONNECT_SEL 1

 

Install hda-verb from the package `alsa-tools` if needed. This worked for me on Ubuntu 20.04. What it does, is put the second set of tweeters (or the bass, unsure) to the headphone control. So you should control in alsamixer the headphone output to control the bass. 

 

It's not a definitive or perfect fix, but I hope that this gives other developers the right idea to get nice sound. Reading the others comments in the gist makes me hopeful.
