This guide is intended to provide you details on how well this laptop works with Linux and which modules you need to configure. For details on how to actually install and configure the required modules have a look at our guides section for distribution specific instructions.

|Name||Fujitsu Lifebook P1610|
|Processor||Intel Core Solo U1400 ULV 1.2GHz|
|Graphics||Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950|

As default the native screen resolution of the Lifebook P1610 is 1280×768, however due to the way the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 functions this resolution would not be usable right away. To get it working you will need to install the 915resolution program and type in:
915resolution 3c 1280 768
This will then allow you to use the native 1280×768 resolution. However this setting will be forgotten after each boot so you will need a way to automatically run this command at every boot. Fortunately most Linux distributions come with the 915resolution program and include a simple way of achieving this. You can view our Configuring the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900 & 950 guide for more information.
Docking station seems to work fine, I am using Xinerama for the display portion.

There were no problems in getting the Fujitsu Lifebook P1610 working when used with an up to date Linux distribution.
