C720p trackpad on linuxmint

Written by lenny cartier.

Installing linuxmint on C720p is pretty straightforward (except probably the little trick to make saebios and linux boot default).

Making the trackpad working is a little bit tricky mostly because installing procedures found around the web do not focus on linuxmint.

So here is a step by step procedure I followed.

download the Chrubuntu trackpad build script

wget https://googledrive.com/host/0B0YvUuHHn3MndlNDbXhPRlB2eFE/cros-haswell-modules.sh

make it executable with

chmod 755


apt-get update then apt-get upgrade

install the following dependencies :

apt-get install build-dep linux-sources dpkg-source dpkg-dev

then try to launch


reboot, it should work
