Solution: Encrypted system and UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY: RUN fsck MANUALLY.

If you get this error during startup, it's possible to fix. I did it for debian.

First get a rescue cd from When you have booted it up enter the standard command line mode. For some strange reason you only get the option of a few language sets by the system itself when booting, but when you have entered the command line you can easily load other language sets by running loadkeys. There's a bunch of other keysets located on the system.

In short terms you have to run the following cmds:
cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/
vgscan --mknodes
vgchange -ay
fsck /dev//

Touchpad click delay on Lenovo T510 in Linux

When I decided to run Linux (Debian) on a T510 I noticed there was a delay when clicking/tapping on the touchpad. The fix for this was pretty easy. Simply edit "/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf", and in the section for InputClass add the following lines:
        Option "Clicktime" "0"
        Option "SingleTapTime" "0"
