hello there, On this laptop, I'm attempting to install Ubuntu. It successfully installed in Windows dual boot mode.

I tried using every piece of information I could find, but the keyboard is completely unresponsive (when I connect a external keyboard it works or have a keyboard on screen it is working fine as it is touch screen).

Additionally, the wifi adaptor is not recognised and is not functioning.

Anyone who has installed Ubuntu on this laptop successfully. Can you please help me.

I appreciate you.

Hi, it seems there are issues with the keyboard IRQ (see here), a patch should be available in the next release (6.0) of the linux kernel.


Hi, upgrading to kernel 6.0 doesn't solve the keyboard issue for Intel Slim-7-ProX-14IAH7. I'm on Ubuntu 22.04 and running kernel 6.2.6.

Did you manage to resolve the keyboard? Thanks.


It's solved. The below worked for me:
    1. Open /etc/default/grub and find GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT line.
    2. Change it to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="i8042.direct i8042.dumbkbd"
    3. Run sudo update-grub
    4. Reboot

i8042.direct - Put keyboard port into non-translated mode i8042.dumbkbd - Pretend that controller can only read data from keyboard and cannot control its state (Don't attempt to blink the leds)
