• HP Zbook X360 G5 - Wacom Touchscreen not working and undetected

    Hi! I’ve installed Antergos on my HP Zbook X360 G5 for a few weeks now, but haven’t been able to make its Wacom touchscreen work no matter what I try (and also the Fn special keys). This laptop is pretty recent (2018) and seems to still have weak support sadly.

    About my setup, I current run an Dual boot Luks encrypted Antergos.
    I run Wayland which is the only session type to work with bumblee on my Nvidia Optimus Quadro P1000 with hybrid graphics in the Bios. X11 only works with discrete graphics, is a bit sluggish anyway and doesn’t work in touch mode any better.

    I noticed that my touchscreen doesn’t even seem detected when I do xinput --list or libinput list-devices (see https://pastebin.com/A0JMXw4f)
    However I can see it if I use udevadm (see https://pastebin.com/SmcZWuqZ):

    My kernel modules are as follows (https://pastebin.com/TfiYZvx0) where wacom and wacom_i2c seem to be loaded.

    And finally, I see some ACPI errors in dmesg (https://pastebin.com/7pRmeQfw):

    So would anyone know had the same problems or know what I could try? Even if it requires patching the kernel or anything else?
    Thanks in advance!

  • @rtmv you can try dkms wacom driver to get a more recent driver installed:

    input-wacom-dkms (AUR)

    For X-Org session make sure x-driver is installed:


    (sidenote: better take another pastebin service, as pastebindotcom is called unsecure)

  • Thanks for the advice @joekamprad , I’ll avoid it next time.

    So I already have xf86-input-wacom and already tried input-wacom-dkms (tried it again to be sure) but I had no luck with any of them…

    By the way it’s unclear to me if that’s related but I also see the following in dmesg :

    [   16.711306] ish-hid {33AECD58-B679-4E54-9BD9-A04D34F0C226}: [hid-ish]: enum_devices_done OK, num_hid_devices=3

  • Suprisingly, using the daily Ubuntu Live image, I managed to have touch screen work without doing anything special (by the way, weirdly, I couldn’t manage to start an Antergos live as it freezes on the loading white screen with antergos Logo…). I don’t know if it’s related to its Kernel 5.0.0-8-generic which is not yet available in Arch.

    I can notably see the following lines appearing in dmesg in addition to what I have on my Antergos install:

  • @rtmv
    I’m not familiar with Ubuntu’s package numbering. Arch has kernel 5.0.7.arch1-1, and Ubuntu has 5.0.0-8. Does that mean Ubuntu’s kernel is newer?
    In fact, kernel.org says 5.0.7 is the newest currently.

  • @manuel said in HP Zbook X360 G5 - Wacom Touchscreen not working and undetected:


    Oups you’re right my bad! I missed a .0 😄 ! Indeed that would have been suprising to have Ubuntu run such a bleeding edge Kernel close to a release…
    Indeed I have 5.0.7 (5.0.7-arch1-1-ARCH) and it looks like their is older (5.0.0)! So wrong hypothesis.

    I’m starting to wonder if my acpi parameters are implied (I use acpi_osi=! acpi_osi=“Windows 2009” acpi_backlight=vendor). I remember I fought with them the first them. I’ll try some other values…

  • @rtmv
    I was too thinking about those kernel parameters, are they currently OK or not.
    You could write them down now for reference, and then try to remove (or modify) them one by one. The less you need them, the better.

    Kernels do get many fixes as time goes by, and it is very much possible that some of them are no more needed.

    Another idea is to try the LTS kernel (linux-lts) unless you already have done that.

  • So I tweaked parameters and couldn’t find a way to make my PC start with kernel parameters other than acpi_osi="Windows 2009" (I tried lots of combinations without result, taking inspiration on https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Talk:ASUS_E403SA)…

    But! I also tried to completely throw away the Nvidia driver, nouveau, and anything I could (I’m running on intel vesa). And then I was able to get rid of acpi_osi parameters at boot. And now my touchscreen is working 😃 !
    But I have a crappy GPU and no way to start my Quadro… 😢

    So my conclusion is that acpi_osi="Windows 2009" that is required for my NVidia card messes with the ability to recognize the Wacom touchscreen… So I’m now facing a cornelian choice 😓 : it’s either my touchscreen or my dedicated GPU, knowing that switching between both mode is not that trivial…

    I quickly tried to enable nouveau to see if it would work better but couldn’t manage to make it even loaded at runtime (despite it being activated in mkinitcpio and the blacklisting command disabled in modprobe…). I’ll try again hoping I can find why.

  • @rtmv
    Great that you have some progress! Seems that your hardware is not the easiest for Arch based distros.
    But I guess Arch wiki and/or lots of googling (or whatever search you use) can provide many ideas, and hopefully one of them proves to solve the case.

    BTW, if you install inxi and provide its output here, maybe, just maybe someone’s light bulb switches on…

  • For some reason, X11 started working with touchscreen support (and Wayland still works!).
    I guess latest updates or Kernel (right now 5.1.5-arch1-2-ARCH) helped!
    Many thanks for the help
