Enable multitouch function on precision touchpad for Vivid
Status in HWE Next:
Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
Status in linux source package in Vivid:
Status in linux source package in Wily:
Status in linux source package in Xenial:
Multitouch feature is not enabled on some platforms with new Win8
precision touchpad because it can't fetch the report from the device.
In worst case it can even break the multitouch device.
There's one commit to fix this issue:
Author: Mika Westerberg <mika.westerberg@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
Date: Wed Oct 7 15:33:43 2015 +0300
HID: multitouch: Fetch feature reports on demand for Win8 devices
In addition, this commit may cause some issue on ELAN touchpad, and
there's another commit to improve the fix:
Author: Benjamin Tissoires <benjamin.tissoires@xxxxxxxxxx>
Date: Tue Dec 1 12:41:38 2015 +0100
HID: multitouch: fix input mode switching on some Elan panels
Both commits can be clean picked, and are already in Xenial.
The patched Vivid kernel is tested on two platforms and both worked
before and after suspend.
