Review of Linux Compatibility

The Fujitsu Lifebook A514/FJNBB3A is a laptop and was successfully tested in configuration

 DMI: FUJITSU LIFEBOOK A514/FJNBB3A , BIOS Version 2.07 07/03/2015

under Debian GNU/Linux 8.2 (jessie) with Linux kernel version 3.16.0-4-amd64.

To operate the touchpad the same settings are needed as for the Lifebook A544, i.e. 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
