ThinkPad Edge 13" Series

This page gives an overview of all ThinkPad Edge 13" Series related topics. The Edge 13" exists both in a Intel and AMD processor model.

ThinkPad Edge 13" (Intel)

Machine Type

  • 0196

Standard Features

Distribution Support

(K)Ubuntu 10.04 LTS

See: Installing Kubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx) on a ThinkPad Edge 13" (Intel)

Ubuntu 10.10

Ubuntu 10.10 out-of-the-box supports pretty much all this machine's hardware, including:

  • power (frequency scaling, hibernate)
  • networking (wifi and ethernet)
  • card reader (tested with SDHC card)
  • webcam
  • HDMI (video, audio untested)
  • combo headphone/mic jack (same kind of connector as many smartphones)

The only hardware disfunction is with the built-in microphone, which does not work by default. An incomplete workaround is to use the snd-hda-intel module's model=olpc-xo-1_5 or model=laptop option, however this disables the external microphone/headphone combo jack. Ref. bug/683487 [1].

OpenSUSE 11.3

OpenSUSE 11.3 supports this model out-of-the-box, including 3D desktop effects, hibernate, built-in webcam and wireless.

The combined headphone/microphone socket and the built-in microphone, however do not. A workaround is to add the following line at the beginning of /etc/modprobe.d/50-sound.conf:
options snd-hda-intel model=olpc-xo-1_5
