Linux on a Fujitsu Siemens ESPRIMO Mobile D9510 from 2009

Fujitsu Siemens ESPRIMO Mobile D9510

Linux runs well on an old Laptop after installing a SSD. A quick test with Linux Mint Xfce 20.1 showed:

  • Boot (Grub) to login: 15 seconds
  • Login to desktop: 8 seconds

The left four of the five buttons on top of the keyboard beneath the power button do not work out of the box:

Buttons D9510

To enable these buttons permanently, enter:

sudo crontab -e

Append the line:

@reboot /usr/bin/setkeycodes e001 182 e002 183 e003 184 e004 185

Now these buttons can be used for starting programs or other shortcuts.
