I am new to CL. I recently got a surface to toy with and the touchscreen does not seem to be working.
A bit of research showed that the touchscreen is done by Intel. How can I get the touchscreen working in ClearLinux?
Can you share the exact model of your surface pro and screen?
From helping others, I can tell you the Surface devices unfortunately tend to have gaps in support on Linux in general.
@puneetse It is this one https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surface_Pro_(2017)
Everything works fine for me except the touchscreen (I did not know Intel does touchscreens?!) and a lot links to https://github.com/linux-surface/linux-surface
You have to build and install kernel with patches from linux-surface project. You can take inspiration from my linux-surface package. It’s based on a bit older 5.4 kernel package version then currently used in upstream, I’m planning on updating it soon, but it should work.
I am also interested in testing the Surface Linux kernel on my Surface Laptop Go if that s reasonably easy … I ve posted here : Install Surface Linux Kernel?
