Any news on trackpad and WiFi support for the EzBook 2? =/January 19, 2018 at 7:59 pm #77257
Check out the many links I posted on howto install for the EZBook 3 Pro (various different Linux distro’s) and try it!… there’s no way to tell unless you try it because Jumper changes their hardware parts and BIOS versions so often. You also need to try different Kernel versions.February 4, 2018 at 8:09 pm #78843

Hello, sir! I bought a jumper ezbook 3 pro a week ago, I am planning to install and install the ssd disk, but I’m in dilemma, I can not boot linux, I will not even have windows 10 fresh version. Does anyone have an explanation of my bios is 2.18.1263, and there is no setup option.
What “setup” option are you looking for in your BIOS? If you want to switch to another boot device, just hit F7 when the Jumper logo appears at boot.
I’m not sure if I got your question 100% right, but you might want to have a look at this thread https://techtablets.com/forum/topic/ezbook-3-pro-how-to-unlock-the-bios-2/
If you need more options to tweak in the BIOS, that’s the way to go….

remember this is “Running Linux on the EZBook 2?” thread. EZbook 3 has totally different hardware, so you will not be lucky here with Ezbook 3 questions.June 25, 2018 at 6:26 am #144131

I have Yepo 737s and ubuntu 18.04. Iwant apply the patch in kernel 4.15 (ubuntu 18.04) for Bluetooth. Wifi is OK.
Can you explain what I should do?
Also, speakers don’t sound: “Analog Output Atom/Celeron/Pentium Processor x5-E8000/J3xxx/N3xxx Series PCI Configuration Registers”
ThanksAugust 30, 2018 at 6:18 pm #145977
your yepo has the same atom processor range as the Jumper 2 but the other hardware can differ, better find a yepo forum or ask in the ubuntu forum.
sorry and good luckAugust 30, 2018 at 6:30 pm #145980September 1, 2018 at 9:28 pm #146106
looking into your link Brad it seems that a lot of people have audio problems there.
how about search for: run linux in windows
lots of answers thereDecember 14, 2018 at 9:30 am #149130
Got the touchpad working. In retrospect it was so simple …..

All you need to do is blacklist hid_multitouch on archlinux. Should be the same on all other distributions.

Good feedback. That is a driver for touchscreen, so not too surprising it might clash with some machines’ touchpads esp those that don’t have a touchscreen.
Should at least work for Manjaro and Antergos since those are based on Arch. Ubuntu and LinuxMint are based on Debian and often have much different releases, drivers, etc.
Note however that the bug you linked to was reported with Ubuntu 17 and Kernel 4.10 which is not the latest code. There has been touchpad fixes since 4.10 that may have solved this problem already just by upgrading to the latest Kernel v4.19. As you prob know if you use a distro like Manjaro which uses a “rolling release” and has a easy to use Kernel manager app is the easiest way to ensure you are using the latest code. Plus Manjaro Xfce is a pretty memory efficient and light/fast distro better for less powerful CPU’s.

I’ve run pretty much every version since 4.8 – so I can confirm this bug exists in all versions upto 4.19.8.
There could be other fixes that might have something to do with the touchpad working now – but hid_multitouch needs to be blacklisted. I haven’t tested blacklisting with the older versions.
Perhaps someone can and post results here.
Anyhow, hopefully, this solves a major issue.
The wifi is an AP6212 – that should be supported by brcmfmac. However, it’s not detected at all. Something to do with the SDIO settings most probably.
Maybe people can experiment with the SDIO setup in the BIOS to see if PCI mode help with the wifi chip being detected.December 14, 2018 at 12:02 pm #149136
Well in any event it’s great that Arch Linux is now running fairly well on this relatively inexpensive notebook. So what are the things that do NOT work?
Bluetooth? Battery gauge? Brightness change? Audio volume change? Suspend/Hibernate? etc.
Re your ap6212 problem see this if you didn’t already: https://askubuntu.com/questions/1007163/ubuntu-16-04-how-do-i-logically-troubleshoot-ap6212-6255-broadcom-wireless-blu
That guy Jeremy in the thread is a Wireless debugging guru. I see him on both the Ubuntu and LinuxMint discussion forums helping tons of people figure out their WiFi problems. Another thing you could try just to debug the problem is installing say Manjaro onto a USB drive and boot from that, so not touch your existing Arch config, and seek help on the Manjaro forum. Some great guys there too.December 14, 2018 at 4:54 pm #149154
Works – Battery Gauge, Brightness change, suspend
Partially works – Bluetooth after adding file from https://github.com/pfeerick/linux-build/raw/master/package/root/etc/firmware/BCM4343A0%2026M.hcd /lib/firmware/brcm/BCM4343A0.hcd
Don’t Work – Wifi, Audio – seems like wifi is not detected since mmc1 is disabled. Can’t figure out how to enable it.

If you want a distro of Linux that just works on EZBook 2, try Pop OS 18.10(Ubuntu derivative) by System76 the only thing is that WiFi doesn’t run that great to fix that I install the latest kernel, you can use UKUUFebruary 17, 2019 at 8:15 am #150497

I registered just to share that I also found a distro with everything working out of the box on this Jumper Ezbook 2. First I tried Ubuntu Budgie 18.04, but I could not get the audio to work, nothing at all, not even the headset. I decided to give Manjaro KDE a try and success!
I uploaded a video to show the different things running. I hope it helps.
