Tested on Gentoo GNU/Linux, kernel version 3.7.

The only thing i did to somehow get my life easier - enabled touchpad on/off button manually. Maybe i did something wrong, but it wasnt work for me no matter how hard I pressed on it :3 So I wrote a little script to toggle touchpad on or off:

touchpad_id=`xinput list --id-only "PS/2 Logitech Wheel Mouse"`
touchpad_status=`xinput list-props ${touchpad_id} |awk '/Device Enabled/{ print $4 }'`
if [ ${touchpad_status} = '1' ]
    xinput disable ${touchpad_id}
    xinput enable ${touchpad_id}

and then added it to the config of the ~/.xbindkeysrc:


Off course the one need to install the appropriate packages (xbindkeys etc.) to do it like that. Don't forget to add xbindkeys to autostart.

Here is my kernel config: Asus U24E Kernel Configuration (sample, v3.8.0-rc1) (older kernel versions since 3.6.10 had the major power regression btw).


Works perfect out-of-the-box; suspend and hibernate, cpu freq scaling - no issues. Brightness regulators works just fine too.
