This worked for someone in another thread:

Code: Select all

echo "blacklist ideapad-laptop" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/ideapad-laptop.conf
Reboot and do:

Code: Select all

sudo apt update
sudo apt install git dkms build-essential
git clone https://github.com/jeremyb31/ideapad-laptop.git
sudo dkms add ./ideapad-laptop
sudo dkms install ideapad-laptop/1.0
sudo rm /etc/modprobe.d/ideapad-laptop.conf
