Did anyone manage to make the touchpad work in Linux?
I tried different distros and drivers, but in all of them the touchpad does nothing. It isn’t even recognized by the system.March 6, 2018 at 2:33 pm #140311

No luck for me as seen in my review. Tried Antergos?

I tried Antergos, but the result is the same.April 19, 2018 at 5:41 pm #142106
The problem is in the linux kernel, that does not recognize the touchpad.
After a long discussion in this bug report https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1526312 someone came up with a solution that solved the problem.
I think there will be an easier solution soon, but if you don’t want to wait, here are the steps I used to fix the problem.
1- Download the modified i2c-hid.c file from https://github.com/brotfessor/sipodev/blob/master/b/i2c-hid.c
2- Download the source of the kernel version you want to use
3- Replace the original i2c-hid.c file by the modified i2c-hid.c
4- Now compile the kernel and installMay 9, 2018 at 8:02 am #142840
I’m very interesting by this problem, i understand the process.
If you had make these manipulations,can you explain me in the detail, and give me the process step by step?
I use ubuntu and debian, and i am not an unix programmer.

I compiled Ubuntu 18.04 kernel and it works 😀 Awesome thanks 😀May 18, 2018 at 10:47 am #143111
I’m satisfy for you, but can you give a methologie step by step to realise this compilation?
I use ubuntu 16.04 and debian, i wait for the ubuntu 18.04.

You can download my kernel here: https://github.com/pokulan/Ubuntu-Kernel-4.15.0-20-for-Teclast-F7
Step by step is available on Ubuntu wiki 🙂May 23, 2018 at 11:44 am #143236
Thank you VOJTEK for your help.
Tell me, under linux (ubuntu or débian) have you all functionality of the F6 pro ok in tablet mode or pc mode (rotate screen, fingers reader, wifi, charge, etc..) ?
ThanksMay 23, 2018 at 6:21 pm #143256
I don’t think linux has not a good support for touch screen devices, and I don’t think there exists a ‘table mode’, but it works as expected.
The only thing that does not work is the fingerprint reader. I’ll try to find a way to make it work, because it is very useful. If anyone has fingerprint working in linux, please share with us.May 24, 2018 at 1:48 pm #143274

I think you can toggle screen rotation as needed by installing/configuring and running the xrandr utility.May 26, 2018 at 5:17 am #143332
The touchpad is working (tap, two fingers swipe in all directions, zoom in/out with two fingers + ctrl), I don’t know if touchscreen works, I don’t have F6. Touchpad should works because it is the same but screen?… I don’t know :/June 4, 2018 at 7:14 pm #143613
I follow your instructions on GHitub, it’ s ok on ubntu.
I kneew this day, that microsoft buy GHitub, it’s very crazy, no !
Microsoft must became open source, it’s very most simple for us. What do you think about that?August 30, 2018 at 10:21 am #145957
