This page describes one way to get SL500 hotkeys, brightness and bluetooth working with openSUSE, via Alexandre Rostovtsev's driver.

General notes:

  • Edit/create a file /etc/modprobe.d/lenovo-sl-laptop.conf which just has one line: 'options lenovo-sl-laptop control_backlight=1' (this tells modprobe to load the module with backlight control enabled)
  • Use YaST -> Bootloader or edit the /boot/grub/menu.lst file to add 'acpi_backlight=vendor' as a kernel option to your kernel line.
  • If you are using laptop-mode-tools, edit /etc/laptop-mode/conf.d/bluetooth.conf to set BLUETOOTH_INTERFACES="lenslbluetoothsw" instead of "hci0".
