I'm back to using FreeBSD as my daily desktop machine for the first time since 2002! Been on Arch Linux & OpenBSD since then. Nice to be back. FreeBSD 12. Lenovo ThinkPad T440s. Wow.
I've noticed that the trackpad seems backwards: it's the bottom (the part towards me) of the trackpad...
I plugged a cable to Displayport output of my laptop trying to connect it to an EIZO monitor - arandr shows the screen - I can "Activate" it and even choose few resolutions - but there is a problem - screen is black (yes I switched a signal source in the screen Options to Displayport). The same...
Recently I decided to run exclusively FreeBSD 11.2 (RC3) on my new Thinkpad T480. I'm using drm-kmod-next, overall the system runs quite well. But one really annoying problem is that none of the FN-brightness up/down, wireless, etc.. was working. Even using the acpi_ibm driver. It took me a...
I have a Lenovo ThinkPad X230 with the Centrino Advanced-N 6205 card. I've got FreeBSD 12.0-CURRENT installed and I can successfully connect to my home WiFi on the 5 GHz band. However, I'm noticing that there is a significant performance hit to my Internet speeds.
When I had a Linux distro...
Hello everyone, I am new here and new to freeBSD.
I installed freeBSD with XFCE and for the most part it is working fine. However, I have a problem with suspend when the lid is closed (zzz works).
Also, the CPU fan seems to be working, but it gets to around 60-70c and it's not really work at...
I have decided to give FreeBSD a go on my old X300 laptop. Got everything running apart from my graphics card. For some reason it defaults to 640x480. I have installed Xorg, LXDE and Slim packages and now I am unable to login through Slim, it looks like the graphics card driver...
I've been banging my head into the wall trying to figure this out.
I have an older laptop with an Intel Pro Wireless 2100 card that works perfectly well under Linux.
I had a bit of trouble getting the card to be detected by ifconfig as wlan0, but I finally got it working. Now scanning with...
Hello FreeBSD community!
I installed FreeBSD-11 on ThinkPad T400 and now I'm trying to get Xorg to work.
This laptop has two graphic cards - integrated 4500MHD and discrete Radion HD 3470. The discrete card is working just fine (with radeon driver) if I select it in the BIOS as the only...

I am considering the Thinkpad T460 as my next laptop. Could anyone please let me know about the hardware support? Would it be a decent choice to run FreeBSD on?
The T460 is not listed here, any input would be helpful.
I'm having issues setting up Synaptics on my Thinkpad X1 Carbon running 11-CURRENT. I know CURRENT isn't supported, but I wanted to make sure I wasn't just having problems with X.
I started off by following the instructions on the wiki and this leads to a mostly working...
Is it possible to control ThinkPad LEDs?
I'm using FreeBSD 11.0-CURRENT on ThinkPad T430.
The driver acpi_ibm is supposed to provide such functionality. Under /dev/led I have:
I have no idea...
I would like to share my experience in trying to have a working Xorg on FreeBSD, on a recent (August 2015) Lenovo Thinkpad w541.
The laptop model I tried it on has a Intel Quad Core i7-4810MQ cpu (Intel HD Graphics 4600) and Nvidia card.
The gist of it: FreeBSD installs fine, but Xorg will not...
