Hey folks - I’m a total newbie so I’m unsure if this is the most elegant way of doing it, but given that Pop uses kernelstub I figured I’d try adding the "quiet splash module_blacklist=hid_sensor_hub" to it. It works!
I think he is referring to blacklisting the hid_sensor_hub module to workaround the 12th Gen motherboard bug as documented here. That way, you sacrifice ambient light sensor to make the Brightness keys work (F7 & F8). Does that help?
PopOS bundles kernelstub to help you easily manage kernel options without having to do so manually in the bootloader you use.
Hey all, cross posting this here as I’m getting the notifications to update my DBX firmware on Pop Os but also a warning that I can’t use USBc power to do it? Did anyone try this, and was it fine to just proceed?
I used Wayland for awhile with Pop and really enjoyed it. But there are a few apps that haven’t caught up. Zoom in particular would not allow screen sharing while running Wayland. So I had to switch back. Looking forward to trying it again in a few months when perhaps things have caught up to it more.
It all worked, but there is one discrepancy I found with some of the keys - brightness and airplane mode keys are only registered as F keys in PopOS.
The rest are recognized, for example “Audio next” and F6 are registered separately.
What this results in is - I can’t select the brightness down key, but I can select F7. So I can only use the brightness feature while holding the fn key to hit F7.
To compare with Audio next, you can use the actual key and not fn+key to trigger F6.
I’m curious if anyone found a way to register the remaining keys?
@Matt_Hartley also interested in the outdated guide! I might update it and publish an unofficial one on my blog - running PopOS on a FW13 11th Gen Intel so far without any issues.
Sleep works, function keys work, fingerprint auth works.
To anyone else reading this, I cannot stress this enough, this guide is super dated and has zero support. You will be better off on Ubuntu 22.04.3 with the recommended kernel or Fedora which have solid support.
