[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Here are the steps I took for Fedora 36 - KDE

1) do a clean install of Fedora 36 KDE-Spin

2) Using this guide ( with modified steps

- sudo dnf config-manager --add-repo=

- sudo dnf install --allowerasing kernel-surface libwacom-surface

  (DO NOT include iptsd as the doc shows)

3) reboot

- log back in and make sure a 'uname -a' shows the surface kernel

4)  Update the system

- sudo dnf -y update

5) Install DKMS

- sudo dnf install dkms

6) Install the "Linux driver for Intel Touch Host Controller" based on this guide (

- Download the code as a zip file to my Downloads Directory

- cd to my Downloads directory

- unzip the file ( unzip

- cd to the new directory: (cd ithc-linux-master)

- sudo make dkms-install

- sudo modprobe ithc

7) Install iptds (just in case, this step will probably say its already installed)

sudo dnf install iptsd

8) Make the kernel use intremap=nosid

- Edit /etc/default/grub :

   Change this line:

     GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="rhgb quiet"

   To This:

     GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="rhgb intremap=nosid quiet"

   Save the changes

- Deploy the change to grub:

     sudo grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

9) Reboot and enjoy your working touch screen
