x61 works out of the box without any additional tweaks or modifications. I was struggling a bit with my t430. Everytime I docked the laptop, my external screens settings got messed up. I described my problem and the solution here. It still does not work 100%. Sometimes I need to re-dock to get the configuration right.Hierax_ca wrote: ↑Tue Sep 18, 2018 1:29 pmSince a few others of you are also successfully running MX Linux on your Thinkpads, it might be appropriate to let you know that the MX Linux team is looking for feedback on Thinkpads so they can keep on improving:
I've posted the inxi info and my comments about how MX Linux is working on my own Thinkpads and it would be great to have more data to improve things for all of us Linux-using Thinkpad lovers. Even if you don't use MX, I'm sure the developers of whatever distribution of Linux you are using would appreciate feedback too -- Linux is free but we are all stronger when we share our knowledge!
Q: I am new to the linux world. I understand, that TLP does not work with any profiles - no "on-demand" or "maximum performance". Is this correct?
That and this, these and those...

Welcome to the Forums.
The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.
Thanks so much. Pretty much a very recent Thinkpad convert. This site is such full of information.

I'm running it on everything from a Thinkpad 600x to a 701DS. I'm using for Thinkpads that would run Windows XP or 7.
For older Thinkpads running Windows 98se or 2000 or so, in my case 600x to T60p, I also run AntiX 17.3.1 (with the IceWM/SpaceFM option) :

I have been playing about with Linux for years, but it's only recently been able to compete properly with Windows (in my view) and that is because LibreOffice is now as good as MS Office in almost every respect.
I still have Windows on my T430, but mainly because I am doing a lot of CD ripping, and the best program I have found (EAC) is Windows only. When I can replace that it's curtains for Windows.
And as soon as I can completely avoid Google the happier I shall be.
This is one of the fake reasons to justify keep using Microsoft malware. You have morituri which is as advanced as EAC, not to say more advanced. In case EAC is of such huge importance, rip your CDs with EAC from a virtualmachine. If not, just agree you can't say goodbye to Microsoft

With enormous respect, my reasons are not fake, as will become clear.skx wrote: ↑Sun Dec 30, 2018 4:57 pmThis is one of the fake reasons to justify keep using Microsoft malware.

1 "You have morituri". No, I don't and most probably never will. It's no longer supported, in fact Morituri is moribund. It has been forked to Whipper, so you are somewhat out of date.
2 "as advanced as EAC, not to say more advanced". Not according to Wikipedia's comparison of rippers.
3 "In case EAC is of such huge importance". EAC is not important per se, but accurate ripping is.
4 "rip your CDs with EAC from a virtualmachine". An unnecessary complication.
Furthermore, neither Whipper not Morituri are available to be installed on Ubuntu (I use a distro based on Ubuntu) without a depth of knowledge which I presently lack.
I am pleased that you support Linux, but you would win more friends and influence more people if you were a little less arrogant. No doubt as you get older you will mellow.
