    Surface Pro 4 support?

    I downloaded Fedora 24, created a live usb, and booted it on my SP4. No touchpad, keypad, etc. after booting.

    Is the SP4 supported by the kernel? Are there portions of the hardware that are NOT supported by Fedora 24?

    Maybe in time. If you can find a identification for the underlying supplier of the devices to Microsoft you might be able to find drivers if they've been used by other hardware companies. Microsoft does not share data on its specialized features. Many peripheral hardware builders never consider LINUX a big enough market to create drivers.

    Unhappy Re: Surface Pro 4 support?

    I have the same problem with Fedora 25 and Surface Pro 4.

    The cover keyboard and touchpad doesn't work.

    Any solutions?

    I am also trying Fedora 25 on a new Surface Pro 4 via a USB 3.0 thumb stick. Works great so far EXCEPT I need to use a standard USB keyboard and mouse. As others have noted here, the Surface Pro 4 Keyboard does not work at all in Fedora. I like it so far however.

    Look forward to a driver.

    Thanks,

    Hi guys,

    Have you tried using the camera on fedora 25 or fedora 26? I need to test if the problem is hardware or not, because i already try ubuntu and camera don“t work.

    Thanks.
