Re: Linux on Ideapad D330

2019-06-07, 21:22 PM
Hello ! In the past I bought a Lenovo D330 HD 2 in 1 laptop. I tried to install and use a linux ( Ubuntu, Arch, Debian ). I can install the linux with gfxpayload and nomodeset. I can use it with almost function BUT I can't rotate the monitor. I saw the Full HD edition can run without rotation fault. So, my question is anybody got sollution for this problem and can use linux normal rotation (without external monitor). / If anybody have sollution please write the method and the distro name/. Thanks your help!

try zorin 15

its the best distro that can work without any problem, with the FHD version.

Even when you rotate the touch function still working.

unfortunatelly the desktop appearence is not the best, combine with pantheon then you will have beautiful desktop

I also have an HD model (1280x800) from Aus with 4GB RAM and 64GB eMMC. I can only get Fatdog64-721 working in portrait mode with the following Grub additions...

SyntaxEditor Code Snippet
		nomodeset
		terminal_output console
		set gfxmode=800x1280
		set gfxpayload=keep
		terminal_output gfxterm

 I have also tried UEFI versions of Ubuntu, Knoppix, Zorin 15, Kali, FWUL, and Archlinux but can't get any of those working even with the above grub settings. Any update on the bug submission? Thanks.

Thanks everybody for the great work.  I have the 1280x800 version and have had the same problem as everyone else. I have found a workaround to get it into landscape mode.

I generated an xorg.conf (using instructions from https://askubuntu.com/questions/217758/how-to-make-an-xorg-conf-file) and added the following to the "Device" section.

        Option "Rotate" "CW"

Importantly, this is different to the 'rotate' in the monitor secion (which uses RandR). I have put my xorg.conf here if anybody wants it - https://pastebin.com/8jpWTQnp

 

The first time I booted after making this change, the screen was in landscape - but the virtual X11 screen was still 800x1280 (i.e. the width was 800 pixels and the hight was 1280 pixels). I ran the 'Display' program (xfce4-display-settings) and changed the screen resolution from 800x1280 to 1280x800. Everything looked perfect after this and remains that way after rebooting.

If you do this, the screen will be stuck on landscape mode (i.e. this doesn't fix automatic rotation). Also, you will need to continue using gfxpayload and nomodeset in grub.

 

I am using xubuntu 19.04 and my grub has gfxmode 800x1280 and nomodeset.  ( aside - I have also added fbcon=rotate:1 to grub so that I can see the boot messages in landscape ) .  Hope this helps.

This sound's great ! I tried to use the system with custom grub options ( nomodeset and gfxpayload ) but it wasn't useable becouse of screen rotation. So If I mean in your config ( nomodeset, gfxpayload and the custom xorg config file with the correct resultion ) will work landscape mode in the tablet without automatic rotation. In the next week i will confirm this settings in my tablet if I will arrive. Huge thanks the information and i hope i can switch the Windows .

After installing Zorin OS 15 the default screen orientation wasn't read correcctly from the acceleration sensor. After downoading new definitions 

sudo curl -o /etc/udev/hwdb.d/60-sensor-local.hwdb https://raw.githubusercontent.com/systemd/systemd/master/hwdb/60-sensor.hwdb

and updating the hardware database with

sudo systemd-hwdb update

and a reboot my problem was fixed.

I think It is not sollution for 1280x800 D330 because the special grub options will diasble many functions such as automatic screen orientation. Although, The automatic correct screen orientation is not important for me, i will try to solved this in the next week. Are there any else 1280x800 use who can confiirm Ron_Burgundy's sollution for the screen orientatin ?

Hi Joe, Yes I can confirm that Ron's entry in the xorg.conf config file does work wth Fatdog64 but his file doesn't work for Fatdog I had to make my own with much fewer parameters defined. It's great to have landscape mode now but the file disables all screen settings inc. brightness, resolution changes etc from screen settings.

If anyone wants my Fatdog xorg.conf file let me know and I will make it available. I love Fatdog because it's super fast, small and is pre-packed with everything you need.

The only niggling problem I have is that Grub doesn't see the emmc card that you insert and so I had to create a partition on the limited internal drive but with Fatdog it only takes 512M-1GB and you can store your *.sfs changes anywhere. I keep mine on the Windows NTFS partition.

I've been trying to get Zorin 15 going but the install keeps failing when it gets to Grub installation. Live CD is OK but Ron's xorg.conf also blanks out the screen with Zorin 15. Any ideas on how to get past this? Thanks.

I totally agree. Its only a temporary workaround.  I've noticed that the following does't work when using this.

 - touch screen - It is still in portrait mode.  I think that xorg.conf could have a setting for this (Option "SwapAxes")

 - suspend/resume - I think this is because we are using nomodeset.  

 - screen brightness and other display settings (as also noted by Netready)
