I install Gentoo on Acer C720 Chromebook.
Everything fines but touchpad.
It doesn't work with synaptics or libinput.
As I know kernel option for this Chromebook's touchpad is CONFIG_MOUSE_CYAPA: Cypress APA I2C Trackpad support.

I enable in kernel configuration but still not work.

Is there anyone using gentoo Acer C720 Chromebook?

minsoehan,

You also need the correct I2C support in the kernel.

minsoehan,

The Arch Wiki is often useful
That link is to configure the touchpad for Xorg. There are links there to the kernel too.

I think this LINK has something to do with my problem.
because here is mine:
Code:
~ $ dmesg | grep 0x24
[    0.108170] ACPI: \_SB_.PCI0.LPCB.EC0_: GPE=0x24, EC_CMD/EC_SC=0x66, EC_DATA=0x62
[    0.122320] pci 0000:00:1f.2: reg 0x24: [mem 0xe051f000-0xe051f7ff]
[    0.132512] ACPI: \_SB_.PCI0.LPCB.EC0_: GPE=0x24, EC_CMD/EC_SC=0x66, EC_DATA=0x62

I went to see there /usr/src/linux/Documentation/devicetree/bindings/input/cypress,cyapa.txt
I found this...
Code:
Cypress I2C Touchpad

Required properties:
- compatible: must be "cypress,cyapa".
- reg: I2C address of the chip.
- interrupt-parent: a phandle for the interrupt controller (see interrupt
   binding[0]).
- interrupts: interrupt to which the chip is connected (see interrupt
   binding[0]).

Optional properties:
- wakeup-source: touchpad can be used as a wakeup source.
- pinctrl-names: should be "default" (see pinctrl binding [1]).
- pinctrl-0: a phandle pointing to the pin settings for the device (see
   pinctrl binding [1]).
- vcc-supply: a phandle for the regulator supplying 3.3V power.

[0]: Documentation/devicetree/bindings/interrupt-controller/interrupts.txt
[1]: Documentation/devicetree/bindings/pinctrl/pinctrl-bindings.txt

Example:
   &i2c0 {
      /* ... */

      /* Cypress Gen3 touchpad */
      touchpad@67 {
         compatible = "cypress,cyapa";
         reg = <0x67>;
         interrupt-parent = <&gpio>;
         interrupts = <2 IRQ_TYPE_EDGE_FALLING>;   /* GPIO 2 */
         wakeup-source;
      };

      /* Cypress Gen5 and later touchpad */
      touchpad@24 {
         compatible = "cypress,cyapa";
         reg = <0x24>;
         interrupt-parent = <&gpio>;
         interrupts = <2 IRQ_TYPE_EDGE_FALLING>;   /* GPIO 2 */
         wakeup-source;
      };

      /* ... */
   };

I have tried with configurations mentioned in Arch Wiki.
But not work.

And I am using KDE Plasma with synaptics for input devices. If touchpad is properly detected by kernel, those text configurations are not even needed, right?
Just go to setting > input device.

Yes right, it is requiring correct i2c support

To be correct i2c support, I need these thing in kernel
Code:
CONFIG_I2C_DESIGNWARE_CORE=y
CONFIG_I2C_DESIGNWARE_PLATFORM=y
CONFIG_I2C_DESIGNWARE_PCI=y


Now my touchpad works perfect.

Thank you man.
