2560×1440 from a HDMI 1.3 output

I’m using an ivy i5 connected to a Dell 27″ using HDMI with a Amazon Basics HDMI1.4 cable.

The screen position has to be adjusted later to avoid overlaping (on Ubuntu just go to settings and move the screens with the mouse).

#/bin/sh

# this is the worst mode to test if it works.

A way to get the “magic” numbers for new modelines is using the command cvt (cvt 2560 1440 30)
To understand what those magic numbers mean see cvt sources and/or this web page

How to disable Lenovo touchpad on Ubuntu

xinput list

# The touchpad has the number 11

xinput list-props

# The enable property is the 133. It is a boolean and I want it to be False, so 0.

xinput set-prop 11 133 0

This way I can still use the Trackpoint and a External mouse.

I had to discover the part above by myself and does not appear to be on the official wiki:
http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/How_to_configure_the_TrackPoint

Some interesting options from the official wiki to make the trackpoint faster:
echo -n 120 > /sys/devices/platform/i8042/serio1/serio2/speed
echo -n 215 > /sys/devices/platform/i8042/serio1/serio2/sensitivity
