    Hello!
    I compiled kernel for Ubuntu 18.04 which is compatible with our touchpad (F7 and F6 Pro) 🙂

    Thanks for this.  this fix worked for me.

    However, I really want a similar fix for Manjaro as it seems to be much faster than ubuntu, however, I have no idea how to do it or even whether your fixed kernel would work with Manjaro.  Do you know?

     

    Thanks

    If anyone need the patched Ubuntu 4.15.0-29 kernel, https://github.com/sridwan/Ubuntu-Kernel-for-Teclast-F7

    Should work with any flavour of Ubuntu.

    Thanks. Can you compare the responsiveness of the touchad Windows versus Linux?

    Manjaro? It’s possible. Depends on your touchpad version. Is it Syna3602 or ELAN061D/ELAN061C?
    See these links and search the Manjaro forum:

    Simply stating “I cannot make it work” tells us nothing about your problem.  What is your touchpad device type (ID)?  What errors are you seeing in your dmesg output?
    Did you install that latest version of Manjaro XFCE and with what Kernel versions did you try?  Did you report your problem on the Manjaro forum?… and did you try installing any of the previous TP patches? Go look at the threads of the links I posted above and see the debug info (Linux terminal commands) that those users provide. This is what you need to provide for people to help you fix the problem.

    what is the link to the Manjaro forum where you posted your problem?  I did not see it there. EDIT: nevermind. I found it.

    I doubt there are any Ubuntu kernel dev’s here that could answer that.  Try asking on one of the Ubuntu bug threads for this problem such as…

    Hi, so if I install the latest version of Linux Mint, should the touchpad work?
