Re: Touchpad fix X220 synaptics firmware 8.1 bug (linux)

@skx Thanks for this, let me just notice your procedure is not exhaustive. First of all, there's nothing in the /etc/udev/hwdb.d/ directory for most users. You write "look for quirks in the 90-libinput..." file, but you don't even say how to find it / create it. Only search reveals there's a prototy...

Re: Windoze7: Life after End of Life ???

What is funny is that W7 actually has a growing market share:) There even have been months when W10 dropped and W7 grew, haha. I'm too lazy to find the links again, did that for some bloke on reddit recently.

Re: L520 black screen

What ZaZ means is (probably) re-seating the LVDS connector which is on your motherboard. What you do is you take the machine apart - I don't know the specifics of the L520 either, but in X220 the LVDS connector sits under the keyboards, so it pretty much suffices to remove the keyboard to see that c...

Re: Rear Lid Swap

Ironically, i know nothing about that black plastic pieces, but I do know quite a lot about the copper tapes. I think once taken off, they remain fully (or like 75%) adhesive, so there's no need for any treatment to stick them onto the new lid. I've done that in X220 (not "X220t") but I bet the tape...
