    Unfortunately there are obviusly slightly different hardware revision, the distros mentioned above (manjaro, POP 18.10) does not work with my ezbook 2 due to different hardware (mine have broadcom wifi, not realtek)

    This worked for me:

    1.

    install linuxium-ubuntu-18.04.2 from here:

    http://linuxiumcomau.blogspot.com/

     

    2.

    activate touchpad while in live-distro:

    open terminal

    $sudo modprobe -r hid_multitouch

    now touchpad should work

     

    3.

    after installing and rebooting

    activate touchpad again

    to blacklist touchpad on startup

    $sudo -s

    $echo ‘blacklist hid_multitouch‘ >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

     

    4. activate wifi

    $sudo cp /lib/firmware/brcm/brcmfmac43430a0-sdio.jumper-ezpad-mini3.txt brcmfmac43430a0-sdio.txt

     

    5. reboot

     

    6. install ukuu, install mainline kernel 4.19.x or newer

    7. activate sound

    I found a thread here: https://forum.ubuntuusers.de/topic/soundkarte-bytcht-es8316-wird-erkannt-aber-kan/

    the following script worked for me

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/1bIJTzBdMDejj8-6Er8EecjYSDcvULbPx/view

     

     

    Finally:

    working WIFI, sound (partially, only headphones), touchpad, tf card reader, hdmi out , battery monitor

    not working bluetooth

     

    hope it helps
