Hi,
yesterday I've installed Ubuntu 16.04 in dual boot mode in my surbook 128GB.

All devices works well, except touchscreen. Someone know what is the driver for touchscreen?
I've tried loading goodix_touch kernel module but the result is the same.

Waiting a reply.
Regards ;)

Actually the goodix (https://github.com/hadess/gt9xx) driver is almost working for the chuwi surbook and can be patched easily to recognize the device. Just replace all GDIX1001 in goodix.c with GDIX1002 and compile with:
  1. make
  2. sudo make install
  3. sudo depmod -a
  4. sudo  modprobe -v goodix_backport
Copy the Code

Current kernel headers and the build tools have to be installed.
Stylus does always click on proximity, so not usable, maybe someone knows how to solve that.
You have to repeat this step everytime the kernel is updated.

Hi, the number GDIX1002 that i had to change in the goodix.c was mentioned somewhere in the windows driver informations in the device manager (device id or similar), maybe it is a different number for your surbook mini?
