Feedback on the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon 6th Generation - Yoda2

Asked by Henrik Runge on 2018-03-16

I have problems with both track-point and track-pad. track-pad is unresponsive almost all the time and track-point is completely useless.
I can make the track-pad work by disabling track-point in Bios, but not the other way around.
Very similar to this issue: https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/428975/lenovo-x1-carbon-gen-6-2018-touchpad-and-trackpoint-issues-with-linux
Both works fine on Windows 10.
I have a friend who purchased the same model ( different screen but otherwise exact same configuration) and he has no problems with pad nor pointer.

The model / type is: 20KH-CTO1WW

I hope that anyone can help

I just found out ne other difference.
My machine is NFC-enabled, which the other is not.
Since the NFC-receiver is build in to the trackpad/trackpoint, this might be the problem.

Hello,
this sounds like a bug to me, please open a bug report by following the instructions in the FAQ and the link here [1]
Or, you can try to update your system first (even upgrade your kernel) to see if this can be fixed.

Thanks
