Latitude E7440

  5 years ago
  Dell (14" Laptop with Intel Core i5-2430M)
  Mint (older version)
  Works fine with some minor problems
What works:

Almost everything

What doesn't work:

Very unconfortable issues :
- keyboard : on fast typing, keystroke is not released (one workaround is quickly hitting ESC then Ctrl-Z)
- touchpad (synaptic??) is very unconfortable : often jiggle when finger stays still at same place... unable to select a text zone that way. Almost unusable.

Minor issues :
- Dual screen usage : the O/S does not always remember the monitor ID and often defaultly set the addition display on the right of the laptop's display in the workspace.
Plus : it would be wonderful if on identifying the display, that a pop up shows the ID-name of the display on the monitor
- wifi connection is not that responsible on connection at physical location changing
- biometric digit reader is missing

What was done to make it work:

- Keyboard tried to slow down the repeat speed and delay before repeating, but the issue still occurs
