Lenovo Legion 5 Pro 16ACH6H 82JQ

Qubes v4.2.0 latest-kernel 6.6.2

Will hang at first boot if creating sys-usb, so don’t or look at qubes.skip_autostart(https://www.qubes-os.org/doc/autostart-troubleshooting)
Backlight doesn’t work out of the box (use “acpi_osi=‘Windows 2018’” & acpi_backlight=native);

  • Disable SecureBoot
  • Switch to integrated AMD GPU in bios

Basic Input

  • Keyboard - works
  • External USB mouse [if possible to check] - works
  • Touch-pad - works
  • Touch-pad supports “tap as click” and scrolling with 2 fingers works - works
  • Display brightness change shortcuts - brings up icon but it’s not functional
    Brightness can be changed by dropping to the login shell and updating brightness in /sys/class/backlight/amdgpu_bl1/brightness
    In dom0 terminal type:
    sudo -i
    cd /sys/class/backlight/amdgpu_bl1/
    cat max_brightness
    echo 100 > brightness
    For a permanent solution:
    In dom0 terminal type:
    sudo nano /etc/default/grub
    At GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX before "rhgb quiet" add acpi_backlight=native
    sudo grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
    and then reboot the machine keyboard shortcuts work as they should.
  • Sound volume shortcuts - works
  • Keyboard led and keyboard brightness change shortcuts - works
    Look at https://github.com/4JX/L5P-Keyboard-RGB for customizing as done in Windows by Legion Vantage Software otherwise, default values in the bios are used.

    60fps 720p no frames dropped, 1080p/1440p frames dropped but watchable, 2160p frames are dropped but watchable
    Playback speed (2x)
