Post-installation setup

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

Touchpad hotkey enablement (Linux)

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. Create a file /etc/udev/hwdb.d/60-keyboard.hwdb with the following contents:

    evdev:atkbd:dmi:bvn*:bvr*:svnNotebook:pnNS50_70MU:*
            KEYBOARD_KEY_f7=191
            KEYBOARD_KEY_f8=191
    
  2. Execute the following commands:

    sudo systemd-hwdb update
    sudo udevadm trigger
    

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 (NS7x / 17-inch model, Linux)

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

Now reboot your computer to apply the changes.
