Guys, I've been waiting all week for my Lenovo X1 Carbon to arrive. Finally FedEx dropped it off today. First thing I did, is I attempted to upgrade the SSD and realized that the gen2 doesn't support NVMe flash. Bummer. No electronics store in my area has an M.2 SATA SSD. That's ok, I'll go ahead and install NetBSD anyways.
So now I have some issues. I was very much looking forward to NetBSD on this laptop, but I feel a bit disappointed thus far.
First issue, I'm absolutely addicted to two finger scrolling on the touchpad. It's a MUST have for me. Unfortunately, that doesn't seem to work. I've not been able to find any sysctl or other tuning I can do to make that work.
I also cannot control my brightness. No matter what method I try. The buttons do not work (which I've seen others say online). That's fine, I'll use xbacklight. Except it returns an error "No outputs have backlight property." Hmm, ok. So I try to set hw.acpi.acpiout0.brightness to a value other than 100, but it doesn't work. It doesn't return an error, and the output looks like it actually changes the brightness, but if I check the value immediately afterwards, it's still 100.
xfce also can't read the battery status. I see also many people complain about that online, and it seems as though that's due to xfce attempting to use apm instead of envstat. Ok fine, no big deal, I can check my battery via other means, and as mentioned this is actually an xfce problem rather than a NetBSD problem. I'm trying to think of a hackish way I can make it work, but at the end of the day I may need to sit down and try to come up with a patch to submit upstream to xfce.
I'm running 9.2-stable (dated 9/3). I can update to -head but I'm not super confident it'll do much, but it couldn't hurt I suppose.
Also, there's no screen saver config panel in xfce, strange. I can't seem to find it anywhere.
Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated! I can also post necessary output as needed, wasn't sure what to include at this point.
