I’m hoping someone can get me pointed in the right direction on this one.
I have a new (new to me) Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 260 “Convertible” laptop. It came w/o a SSD; the first thing I did was to get a new one, get a Windows install image from Lenovo, and then install Win10, and any system updates available. There were several, and I didn’t keep notes.
I then installed Fedora 34.
I have most everything working for me, with the exception of the Touch Screen. ("Finger Touch; the stylus and “Wacom” tablet parts seem to be OK.) The OS recognizes when I fold the laptop into Tablet mode, but is unresponsive to touching the screen. I have searched around and found that this apparently works in Ubuntu, and that the issue on my Lenovo may be related to a firmware update, that naturally requires a Windows installation to install
Where in Win10 I found a menu to configure the touch screen, I can find no reference to it in Fedora.
So, two questions for the Gurus:
- How does one enable Touch Screen (“Touch Mode”? Not the touchpad; that’s working fine.) support in Fedora 34? (Presumably if it works with Ubuntu, it should work with Fedora. Yes/No?)
- I looked in the system BIOS, and didn’t see anything there; is there any way to determine the firmware version from a Linux OS, or would it be best to simply re-install Win10, install the updated firmware (assuming it hasn’t already been updated as per the above), and then try again with Fedora?
Any thoughts greatly appreciated, TIA! Steve
