I could install Debian Wheezy without any problem
Everything works, except the fingerprint reader

Javier Andrey, 2014/02/17 17:29

Finally I managed to install debian correctly by using the first testing dvd (jessie). It is necessary to pass acpi_backlight=vendor as a grub option to make the brightness screen work

Javier Andrey, 2014/02/17 08:31

My first temptatives of installing Debian, both Wheezy and Jessie, have not suceeeded. Ubuntu is installed correctly but the buttons to control the screen brightness does not work unless you add acpi=vendorlight in the grub options.
