Touchscreen not working on Microsoft Surface Pro [2017]


I am super new to Fedora, and Linux for that matter. I installed it on my surface yesterday, and I am struggling with how the touchscreen on my Microsoft Surface Pro is not working. It also cannot recognize the pen.

Are there easy fixes to this? Did I do something wrong during the install?

Hi - I have no experience with this tablet but you could read this thread Fedora 25 on the Surface 4 Pro it might help you.

Thank you so much @DaveHaras!

I’ve never used any touchscreen devices with linux, so the only advice I can really give is just to run dmesg and then google any relevant error messages.

You may have better luck asking questions over at the SurfaceLinux subbreddit, as they’re likely to have more users of your device.
