Notable Resources


Different distributions are maintained by different people in their own repositories. If the distribution you want to use has a guide here, it's recommended to follow it instead of the instructions given in one of the repositories or otherwise official documentation by distribution vendor, as it considers T2 support.

Kernel Modules

Support for hardware is cross distro besides patches to the distribution specific kernel. The following repos contain kernel modules for said support:

Guides and similar

The following guides are third party

These guides/configurations aren't supported by t2linux maintainers. Use at your own risk. If you are using one of the distributions listed above, you should follow their install guides rather than the ones listed under this section. However, they might still be important to gain a better general picture or to help with specific issues.

Trackpad tuning

  • Wayland
    • libinput tuning is typically applied by distribution maintainers rather than end users. You can test changes on your own, see debugging touchpad pressure and palm detection guides. If you get a configuration that works well, please notify the t2linux maintainers.
  • Xorg (deprecated, use Wayland instead if possible)
    • Implement macOS-like Keyboard and trackpad experience on Gnome Xorg. Read the top comments of each file in the links given below to understand requirements, additional tools and usage.
