Preferred Solution: X1 Gen3 Tablet Linux support

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


What about Linux support for the x1 tablet 3rd gen? It's unusable while I'm unable to Fn-lock the keyboard and use the F-keys as normal! It's terrible to be unable to swap CTRL and FN keys. How can I do these two simple things on my Ubuntu?

In Windows 10, I can't get my X1 Tablet (gen3) to automatically hibernate after a fixed period. I can get it to shut off the screen, and I can make it sleep, but I don't have a option to make it hibernate after a fixed period. From the Windows key, I can make it hibernate -- just not automatically. The result is that I THINK my X1 Tablet is turned off, because the screen has gone dark, but it's just sleeping, and the battery slowly drains instead of saving its power for when I need it. I've read the manual and sought advice from Microsoft, but I just cannot make this work. I'm getting pretty tired of finding my battery nearly depleted just when I need to use this computer. Anyone have an idea???

Hi, my Touch Screen stopped responding to touch inputs from my fingers. It was working ok 4-5 days ago and when I used the device in tablet mode. However, using the Pen to control the screen input does still work as normal. I've tried the following:- Disable / Enable HID Touch screen in Device Manager- Updated Wacom Wintab Driver but driver fails to install / exits without a message- Updated BIOS to 1.29 but no change observed Can anyone suggest a solution?

Hello! I've bought a new x1 tablet gen3 keyboard with jp layout (a fan of small spacebar), and I'm a Linux user. In order to make fn_lock to work, I did some premature experiments and broke my keyboard. https://github.com/libusb/hidapi/issues/105 So that's the background. I'd like to know if there is any way I can recover the firmware? I've contacted some service providers and all of them say I have to buy a new one from Japan, which is quite expensive and takes a lot of efforts. I also did some google search and find there is a firmware but for 1st and 2nd gen  https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/tablets/thinkpad-tablet-series/thinkpad-x1-tablet/downlo...    . I tried that but the upgrader fails to detect the device (of course, the device is broken).  TLDR, does anyone know how to recover the firmware? Thank you in advance!

So this is a new tablet only 2nd week ownership and I am disappointed with the dock keyboard.  Initially it did not work when plugged in so I updated Win10 to Apr 2018 release with all Lenovo updates applied.  I also removed the keyboard from Windows Device Manager and had it re-detected.  After all that the keyboard appeared to work properly.  Well it has stopped working again.  Very disappointing.  It doesn't look like its all hardware problem as when I plug in the backlit keys do show.  But thats all it does.  Keys don't register, trackpad doesn't work, trackpoint same issue.  I don't know if its an driver software problem or hardware.  Any guidance?

Hi there, I just got my new Thinkpad X1 Tablet (gen3) and got some problem when using Battery Charge Threshold in the Lenovo Vantage app. I have set the Threshold to stop charging at 80% and start charging again at 75%. It works at first, for a few days I guess, and suddenly during the lunch time today, I locked the X1 Tablet (battery level 78%), going out for lunch, then I come back and the battery level is 100%. I then opened the Lenovo Vantage app to check, and Battery Charge Threshold is disabled. I have no idea completely, why this settings was messed up, I didn't open the Lenovo Vantage app and the setting was cleared. Can anyone help? Thanks.

I'm thinking of creating a C drive image with Macrium Reflect and replacing the C drive contents on the replacement.  Back when, that might have led to problems with drivers and such, but Windows has gotten more flexible.  I've seen references to the newest installs being very free of bloatware, but I think tidied up the gen2 install  pretty well.  Am I overlooking an issue?  Thanks (And a thanks to Lenovo, particularly Andy, for the help in getting a replacement (screen banding problem).)

A:Windows 8 Developer Preview on Linux Tablet

No. It does not meet the system requirements. Below is the requirements for each. I have highlighted the aspect that your Tablet doesnt meet. While you can try to force the install of Windows with only 512MB of RAM, I would not suggest it as it would not do you any good. It will make the system slow.

System Requirements
Windows 8 Release Preview works great on the same hardware that powers Windows 7:

Processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster
RAM: 1 gigabyte (GB) (32-bit) or 2 GB (64-bit)
Hard disk space: 16 GB (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
Graphics card: Microsoft DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM driver

Windows 7 system requirements
If you want to run Windows 7 on your PC, here's what it takes:

1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)
16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver

Windows Vista system requirements
If you want to run Windows Vista on your PC, here's what it takes:

1 gigahertz (GHz) 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
1 gigabyte (GB) of system memory (512 megabytes (MB) for Home Basic)
40 GB hard drive with at least 15 GB of available space (20 GB for Home Basic)
Support for DirectX 9 graphics with WDDM and 128 MB of graphics memory (32 MB for Home Basic)
DVD-ROM drive
Audio Output
Internet access (fees may apply)

Hi,I'm not seeing X220 T listed by Lenovo in laptops-windows 10 compatibilty list...??? Is that right? Mine is a 3 years old system... I can't believe is not going to be possible to use Windows 10... Anyone has tried it?Thanks.

A:Windows 10 support for X220 Tablet

It may work fine with Windows 10, however, I don't believe its generation of CPU, IGP and chipset are supported by Intel for Windows 10, which means that Lenovo can't support them, either.  For what it is worth, I installed Windows 10 on a ThinkPad X61t and didn't notice any issues, and that has been out of support for a much longer time than your X220t.
That said, it could be that Windows 7, 8 or 8.1 drivers for the various bits of silicon inside your X220 tablet may work just fine under Windows 10, in which case you would be up and running.
The best suggestion I have is to make a thorough backup of your X220 and then try applying the Windows 10 Upgrade.  If it doesn't work, you will be able to wipe the drive and then reload your backup.

OK, you might have read this..
...post, but I have a Linux question that goes with it, so I thought I should post over here.

So, the original question was, Is it possible to charge the iPod on a 98se?

Obviously no, but I know the computer is capable of it because Ubuntu and DSL can power the iPod to charge. So I want to know is, what kind of software/drivers do those two distros use that let them send the power out?

Is it a special kind of thing that is for Linux only? Can it be converted to Windows, (Kinda like WINE in reverse).

Any insite would be appreciated!

A:What Type Of USB Support Does Linux Have?

Uhm.. The power is always supplied to all USB devices and you have to turn off the power manually per device or port. It is not a "feature", but an inherent property of USB. Most USB devices wouldn't even work if they didn't get power from the port.

I would guess it's a "feature" of your iPod (needs the computer to tell it to charge itself?) or some serious bug in Windows drivers and/or your ancient hardware. Do the USB ports work with your Windows at all? Have you used a mouse or a flash drive or something?

Maybe get a PCI USB 2.0 controller card? You would get more speed and new drivers. Make sure that Windows 98 is supported by the device!

The datasheet of P50 and P70 state that they support "Ubuntu® Linux" and "RHEL". Can we expect full driver support (color calibration, fingerprint sensor in particular)?The fact that Linux was mentioned in the datasheet was one reason for me to get a P50, but until today the support website only lists Windows drivers. Thanks! PS: I am aware of the P50-P70 linux experiences thread, but this question is about officially supported Linux distributions and targets Lenovo directly.

Does Linux support NTFS?

This was a question asked and talked about in #3dspotlight (unofficial IRC chatroom for TechSpot).

There is an article at www.anandtech.com about this. I am posting this article with a link so people can find this here if the question comes up again.

This article is located at http://www.anandtech.com/guides/viewfaq.html?i=121

I in no way claim that this is my work.

All modern Linux kernels (all 2.4.x and many 2.2.x) DO support NTFS in read-only mode.

Long Answer:
Although you can read NTFS partitions created with any version of Windows NT, you can not WRITE to an NTFS partition created with Windows 2000, XP, or anything yet to come. NTFS partitions created with Windows NT 4.0 and earlier CAN be written to, but this tends to make a mess of the file system, so make sure to do a chkdsk when you boot into NT after writing from Linux.

Below are in-depth instructions on how to gain access to your NTFS partition from Linux.

To access your NTFS partition:

Open a shell if you haven't already.

Become root. Do this by running su and entering your root password when prompted.

Create a mount point for the NTFS partition. mkdir /mnt/ntfs

Mount your NTFS partition. mount -t ntfs -o umask=644 /dev/device /mnt/ntfs
Replace device with the name of your NTFS partition. See below for advice on how to find this if you don't know.

The contents of the NTFS partition is now part of your tree. When you want to acces... Read more

A:Does Linux support NTFS?

It can read NTFS no problem.

It can write to it to, however this is EXTREMELY problematic, and can cause data corruption.

You will have to have NTFS compiled as a kernel module, or into the kernel itself.

Hello Lenovo Support! Can the linux users of this laptop get some love, please? In my case I only need the ability to update my BIOS from liveusb, an .ISO would be perfectly fine. I don't mind all the broken ACPI tables, BIOS updates, deleting all my efivars and some entries, I'll fix them myself, but I do mind, having to dualboot Windows, so just an ISO would be great. Lastly and most importantly can we also get the option to enable VT-d in the BIOS? Both MB and CPU supports it. I'm in extremely high doubt, anything would come out of this post, just hope atleast some of the staff read this to remind them 'Windows' isn't the only OS out there Thanks!

I have HP pavilion g6 2103 tu laptop and Win 8.1 OS is running on it. I would like to change it to Linux OS. Can you please tell me which Linux distribution would suit for this laptop and another big question is are there no drivers available for Linux OS for this notebook model ? I couldnt find them here http://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/HP-Pavilion-g6-Notebook-PC-series/5262606/model/526... Awaiting your reply. Thanks. 

A:Clarification on Linux support

HP supports Linux on a few models but that is not one of them. You can install Linux on it however. The hardware is mainstream so odds are any recent Linux distribution will "just work". I recommend Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (long term support). https://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop Linux drivers do not work quite like Windows drivers. Only very rarely do you just download a driver and have it work. Linux requires some additional skills like compiling Code and getting under the hood with the command line. I have used Linux for over 15 years and have not had a computer during that time which was not running Windows and Linux so have installed Linux on a lot of computers. The Linux Support community is very friendly and helpful. So make the thumb drive or DVD to install Ubuntu and simply boot from it. You will need to format the hard drive and set up Linux partitions but the installer makes it easy. Post back if you need more specifics or have any other questions.

Hey all,
I've been working on getting Touchscreen functionality working with Dell's Latitude 7350 2in1 Model with Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 installed. The model ships with Windows 8.1 and above by default and Dell does not provide driver / software support for any
other OS than what is shipped with the model. I had been looking into various touch screen controller vendors for "generic" drivers such as Atmel, Synaptics, etc, but have not had any luck with driver / firmware installs so far. The main issue I
run into is finding firmware installs that are "updaters" that fail to run due to the source firmware not already being installed. I'm hoping there might be a generic touch screen firmware / driver for tablets from Microsoft for use with Windows
7, but have not had any luck in my search so far. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hi there
Anybody running a Windows 8.1 Virtual machine from a LINUX host with 3-D support working. If so what distro are you using. (VMware player / workstation).

I've tried SUSE and DEBIAN - the VM runs perfectly except I can't get 3-D support or hardware graphics acceleration.

Under Windows as host (W7) no problem !!.


A:Windows 8.1 under Linux - which distro for 3-D support

Hi Jimbo,

You should try installing the certified drivers for the graphics card from Nvidia or AMD instead of standard installed ones, for some distro's use limited opensource versions like the nouveau driver.

Also see specific VMware info about what you need:
That's for a host,
It says WS5.5, but should still apply on newer releases, use the mentioned tools to get info about the graphic drivers.

For a guest, W8, check to see if 3D is on in the VMX file itself:
some example for Ubuntu drivers or install procedures:
How to install Nvidia drivers in Ubuntu 13.04


Although I'm not familiar with AMD/ATI cards, similar packages should exist:

Official binary releases, which are recommemded, also exist on the official sites, Nvidia, AMD.

For Intel I'm not sure what for driver will be used, I've seen something reported as Tungsten which provided pretty good basic acceleration a while back.

So in the end you'll need to install the latest official graphic driver you can get for your distro, then see That OpenGL is running well (run glxinfo and glxgears + some other benchmarking tools* are nice to see).

*System profiler and benchmark:
Good luck.

A:Motherboard with Ubuntu/Linux support

Is there a specific component on that motherboard that you're having problems with? I can't imagine that the motherboard is not "compatible" with linux - in fact, I've found threads with people using Ubuntu with that mobo. I also find it odd that you'd have a Windows Vista issue with that mobo since most of the users I see online who use it are running Vista or 7 64-bit. Perhaps you have a faulty motherboard and it's not a problem with the model itself.

Last month only I have procured “Dell Optiplex 9020” Desktops. I am using Windows 7 Operating system over there, but now I want to install “Red Hat 6”. But I don’t know whether this desktops supports Linux flavors or not.
Please any will tell me whether I can install Linux flavors on it or not?
If yes, which Linux flavors I can install on “Optiplex 9020”?
I also want to know whether this desktop I can use it as "Linux Server"?

A:Does “Optiplex 9020” support Linux?

Thank you for reaching us .
We ship these OptiPlex 9020 primarily with Windows Operating systems, however we have also tested installing "Ubuntu" which is Linux for home users.
You may give it a try in installing RHEL 6 after backing up the data from the PC, I do not see any reason why it wouldn't run.
If it doesn't, Please install Ubuntu or Windows back which should work fine.
Regarding your query about Linux server, It depends on what kind of server you are trying to configure, the best place for the answer is to check in Linux community forum where you can find discussions on the same.
Thank you

Select Run this program as an administrator in the Privelege Level group box Apply and close the properties dialog Run WacomTablet_605-7 After WacomTablet_605-7 finishes -- reboot Once Win7 reboots you will have a functioning Wacom Tablet
I've done this on my own system running Windows 7 Ultimate x64.  Device manager still shows a warning triangle under Other Devices -> WACOM GD, but the Wacom 4D mouse and the Wacom Stylus both work.
I hope this helps,
