Re: Troubles with X1 Carbon 2018 (X1C6) TouchPad and TrackPoint under Linux

Then consider yourself lucky. I also updated the Kernel (4.20) and the BIOS (1.34) but my NFC touchpad realibly dies after resume from S3, which I enabled in the BIOS. I now switched to a MBP, which I still don't love because MacOS gives you a rather bad UX in my opinion, but at least the hardware works with the OS.

Now that I lost so much money and time on the X1C6, I would not risk to buy any other ThinkPad ever again. At least not until they'd sell one with Linux pre-installed or really make an effort to officially support it.

Re: Troubles with X1 Carbon 2018 (X1C6) TouchPad and TrackPoint under Linux

AaronMa from canonical is looking into the issue and has supplied a custom kernel for ubuntu which should fix the suspend/resume trackpoint/touchpad issues (at least it works for me).

 

The bugreport is here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1791427

The specific comment with the download link is here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1791427/comments/94

 

He wants to upstream his patch if more could test/confirm that his changes resolve this issue.

Re: Troubles with X1 Carbon 2018 (X1C6) TouchPad and TrackPoint under Linux

Did anyone manage to enable pinch zoom on the X1 Carbon (2018) on Linux? What are the steps I should do to get a touchpad which is as much working as possible?
