C720p trackpad on linuxmint

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

do

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

./cros-haswell-modules.sh

reboot, it should work
