I recently got my Elitebook X360 1040 G5 and started using Linux on it. Here's my experience so far:
Most of the hardware is working flawless:
- Touchscreen and touchpad including multitouch gestures and the rotation sensor work out of the box
- Pen support and pressure sensitivty is there
- The Sure View switch seems to be hardware controlled and works
- The webcam is recognized as two seperate ones:
- "normal" color web cam works
- IR web cam shows flashing, greyish pictures only
Now the things that don't work for me right now:
- The internal microphone is not recognized
- plugging in a headset and using its external microphone works
- There is some recent development regarding the newer Intel microphones:
- The microphone mute key and its LED don't work
- The Intel LTE modem is not recognized and propably never will, since there's no support from either Intel or HP:
- With Sure View turned off: The display brigthness can be controlled through software, but not with the keyboard hotkeys
- With Sure View tuned on: The display brightness can be controlled with the keyboard hotkeys, but not through software
- The calendar, screen, answer and hang-up phone keys produce an invalid key code, I was able to map them by taking a look at dmesg and using "setkeycodes 66 5" etc.
- They are producing multiple key presses (Ctrl+Shift+4)
Who's also using Linux on their Elitebook and what's your experience like?
Any idea on how to get the microphone working?
