Hello !
I have a gentoo 4.4.6 on a HP ENVY x360 with a AMD FX 9800P that I like a lot.
Everything work except 2 things:
The touchScreen and when I "return" my lid to put in tablet mode X11 don't catch it.

Usually I manage to fix this problem using things like xinput --list, lspci, lsusb, cat /var/log/Xorg.*, or even dmeg, but none of them give me any sign that my touchscreen exist like it never existed ! I thought it is broken but it works on windows...

It's a bit annoying because I would like to use this touchscreen for blender and krita and catch the "tablet mode" for when I read a pdf or watch a movie :(


Here are the information that I think are relevent:
xinput --list:
Code:
⎡ Virtual core pointer                       id=2   [master pointer  (3)]
⎜   ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer                 id=4   [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad                 id=10   [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎣ Virtual core keyboard                      id=3   [master keyboard (2)]
    ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard                id=5   [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Power Button                               id=6   [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Video Bus                                  id=7   [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Power Button                               id=8   [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard               id=9   [slave  keyboard (3)]

like you see there is no sign of any touchscreen, just my little touchpad I don't know what to do or what to test... I even tried to cat every devices in /dev/input and hope to see if any of those catch my touchscreen but nothing :( ...

What should I test ? Where should I search ?

I'd use some live CD/DVD of a Linux distro known for good touchscreen support and see if it works, if it does - see how.

It may not be supported by the standard kernel. I have the problem with the 'pen' on a Toshiba laptop; works fine with Ubuntu and CentOS but they patch their kernels and the changes haven't been passed upstream. My suspicion is that they never will be as the hardware isn't current. If you were familiar with kernel hacking I'm sure you could find and splice the patch, but it was too much work for me; I just use Ubuntu on that machine.

Sorry for the bump, but I was having the exact same issue.
The HP Envy x360 with Gentoo 4.4.26, and I cannot seem to find what is the device for the touchscreen.
I tried lspci, lsusb, xinput and so on, but I get pretty similar results to that of the OP, everything is listed but the touchscreen.

Is there any way to make the HP Envy x360 TouchScreen to work with Gentoo?

ShadowOne333,

This Arch thread suggests that you need hid-multitouch

I already tried that, I have HID-MULTITOUCH enabled in the kernel, as well as trying it out as module, but still nothing regarding the touchscreen.
