Review of Linux Compatibility

The Fujitsu Lifebook UH572 is supported under Linux for major parts. However, there are problems with the control of the integrated touchpads, which is not recognized by the X server.

To solve this issue, GRUB needs to be extended by an additional option which is used by the Linux kernel while booting the system. In the file /etc/default/grub the line

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX= ...

needs to be extended by the options

i8042.notimeout i8042.nomux

in the part with quotation marks.:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX = "i8042.notimeout i8042.nomux"

After saving the new configuration file the updated configuration is activated by

sudo update-grub

The touchpad should be recognized by the system after the next reboot.

To also support 3-finger-gestures a configuration with, e.g., kde-config-touchpad is necessary. This program can be installed by

sudo apt-get install kde-config-touchpad

Afterwards, 3-fingure-gestures can be configured with the program

synaptiks
