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
