(Update 03/02/2017 Bottom of the question)

I recently acquired a new tablet Cube i7

And try to install Fedora 25 Workstation on it.

To keep things simple, I do not have two OS, Ferdora 25 is the only system on there.

With initial installation (with the iso download from the Fedora website for Fedora 25 Workstation), following is what I found:

the touchscreen is not working after boot up (both Xorg and Wayland mode) the WIFI seem to be there, but the signal is weak compare to Windows (even with full strength signal, it fail to connect) -- the post below suggest to install custom driver, but still not success yet

From the XDA-Developer forum, I found out the driver that should be started up is " i2c-FTSC1000"

I try the suggestion where one of posts mention to reload the i2c module, so I did following

rmmod i2c_hid
modprobe i2c_hid

From the doc

It then works some time (after multiple retries, sometime may not work).

With the latest recent update to kernel 4.9.5-200, it seem that device is no longer even showing up.

Is there a way to debug such problem?

I then try Linux Mint 18.1 in USB mode, and it seem it is able to pick up driver correctly

The kernel version seem to be lower version 4.4.0-53 with uname -a

The author from XDA seem to offer a modified kernel with all drivers, but I am not sure how to cherry pick with a Fedora release

Please let me know if more details is needed, will provide them, I am still a beginner in terms of Linux driver.

Try a spin, such as KDE or Cinnamon. They may have more added drivers, than the generic workstation.

You better have to open a terminal and use lspci and lsusb and share the output with us so we can see you hardware components and help you better.

@steveebey73742 : Thanks, I did try KDE Spin, not Cinnamon, but still seem not working, will try Cinnamon afterward

@aeperezt : Thanks, I now update my lspci, lsusb, lsmod, journalctl result. I did one more update just to ensure I get the latest update, but still no luck with the driver

is the wireless built in, or in a usb port? if it is usb, and in a usb 3.0 port, you may need to get updated drivers for usb 3.0.
