Ubuntu 16.04 and 17.04 Lenovo Yoga 720 Touchpad not working

2017-08-23, 21:44 PM

I downloaded Ubuntu alongside Windows 10, but on Ubuntu the touchpad is not working. 

 

My touchpad is not detected on my xinput list.

(The Logitech devices are a USB mouse and keyboard)

 

Does anyone know if there's any resolution to this or am I out of luck? If I'm out of luck, would this be resolved with future versions of Ubuntu? Thanks.

Since it's a hot topic: patch is in 4.14 Linux Kernel, which would be released in November.

Ubuntu 17.10 would be released in October with 4.13 Kernel.

I'm on Ubuntu 17.04 and what helped me is this:

  • Make sure you have Ubuntu running
  • While still in normal laptop mode, turn your Yoga into tablet mode, so totally turn it while running
  • Turn it back into normal laptop and keyboard mode
  • Your touchpad should now work and was recognized by Linux :) well in my case it just worked suddenly

Install kernel 4.14 or above

1) to see what kernel you have: uname -r

2) to install new kernel: http://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2017/11/install-linux-kernel-4-14-ubuntu-linux-mint/
