Re: Debian Jessie on Thinkpad X220

I have had many (fixable)issues with thinkpads and buttons, but not on x220 specifically. First,
it is advised specifically for the x220 to update to a recent bios, 
... and then install a package called tpb (ThinkPadButtons), I checked and it is still in stable(jessie)
here is some more good stuff on the thinkpad x220...

The dude abides . . . GNU - It's Freedom baby, Yeah!
