Post-installation setup

This document contains extra steps to perform after installing Dasharo in order to enable full functionality of your device.

Linux

This section covers Linux post-install steps tested on Ubuntu 22.04. It is likely thas similar procedures would for others Linux distributions as well.

Touchpad hotkey enablement

The touchpad hotkey needs extra setup to function correctly under Linux. To enable the touchpad hotkey to work under Linux, follow the steps below:

  1. Execute fixup script:
curl -sSf https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Dasharo/dasharo-tools/main/clevo/touchpad-fixup | sudo sh

After executing these steps, it should be possible to enable and disable the touchpad using the touchpad hotkey (Fn+F1) on the keyboard when using GNOME.

Touchpad multi-touch support

On NS7x an additional fix is necessary to enable multi-touch on Linux. Create a file /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-psmouse.conf with the following contents:

blacklist psmouse

and then run the following commands:

sudo depmod -a
sudo update-initramfs -u

Updated kernel

On Gen 12 (Alder Lake), it's recommended to install the ubuntu-oem kernel which is a newer version than the default Ubuntu kernel. This version contains additional fixes for newer hardware which helps with power management and suspend on Gen 12 laptops. To install the ubuntu-oem kernel, run the following command:

sudo apt install linux-oem-22.04a

and reboot to use the new kernel.

Nvidia drivers

It is only necessary to follow this step if your device has Nvidia GPU

For proper working of the sleep mode on Ubuntu 22.04, it is required to install additional Nvidia drivers.

  1. Install drivers by executing the following command in the terminal:

    sudo apt install nvidia-driver-515 nvidia-dkms-515
    
  2. Reboot the device to apply changes by executing the following command in the terminal:

    sudo reboot
    

Suspend fix for SATA disks

Only affects laptops with M.2 SATA disks experiencing sleep issues (the power LED not blinking while the laptop is suspended)

Windows and certain Linux distros such as Ubuntu do not enable the necessary power saving tweaks to enable sleep mode while a SATA disk is installed.

  1. Execute fixup script:

    curl -sSf https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Dasharo/dasharo-tools/main/clevo/sata-suspend-fixup | sudo sh
    

Windows 11

Updates and drivers installation

Several features on Windows 11 (i. e. suspending the device) may not work or work unexpectedly without installing all of the updates and drivers.

To install all of them, log into the system, connect the device to the mains and Internet, then follow the steps below:

  1. Press the Windows button on the keypad.
  2. Type Windows Update Settings in the search and press Enter.
  3. Select the Check for updates bar to start installing available updates and drivers. During this process previously selected bar might be changed to Restart now or Retry, so click them if something hasn't been installed yet, something has gone wrong or a restart is just required. The entire process may take up to 30 minutes.
  4. Select the Advanced options option in the Windows Update Settings window.
  5. Locate the Optional updates option and click on it.
  6. Select all displayed updates and drivers.
  7. Select the Download & Install bar to start installing additional updates and drivers. During this process previously selected bar might be changed to Restart now or Retry, so click them if something hasn't been installed yet, something has gone wrong or a restart is just required. The entire process may take up to 30 minutes.

Suspend fix for SATA disks (Windows and Linux)

Only affects laptops with M.2 SATA disks experiencing sleep issues (the power LED not blinking while the laptop is suspended).

Windows and certain Linux distros such as Ubuntu do not enable the necessary power saving tweaks to enable sleep mode while a SATA disk is installed.

  1. Download the script: link
  2. Double click on the script to install the tweak

Headset jack fix for NV4x 12th Gen

The headset jack in NV4x 12th Gen (Alder Lake) needs a fix that is available starting with kernel version v6.0 (patch be561ffad708f0cee18aee4231f80ffafaf7a419). If you are using an older kernel, you need to add the fix manually:

  1. Execute fixup script:

    curl -sSf https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Dasharo/dasharo-tools/main/clevo/nv4x-audio-fixup | sudo sh
    
  2. Reboot. The audio jack will now work correctly.
