try this
Hi, tried the sleepscript, or more correct just did power off prior hibernation and power on after resume, but that unfortunately didn't help. Thanks anyhow!

But surface control just set performance state of platform system
The state is handled by driver (if has them handled) but mostly by hw/fw
Handled I said mean apply status of HW

Correct. The platform profile should definitely not interfere with the CPU frequency, so you can change both independently and there shouldn't be any issues.

Thank you so much!

@drmacro:matrix.orgdrmacroReadme says resize the Windows partition. What the preferred tool/way to do this? Can I get away with booting a usb drive and using gparted?18:46:16
@drmacro:matrix.orgdrmacroI was going by memory, checking the install guide describes the Windows utility. for resizing.18:50:37
@qzed:matrix.orgqzed drmacro: Right, I think the safest way is by using the Windows disk manager (?) thing, as that understands NTFS and should be capable of properly moving files if they're in the way. I don't think there are currently any Linux tools capable of doing that. 20:25:32

@v12venator:matrix.orgv12venatorHi everyone, is anyone else brave enough to update the firmware modules on their surface device using the repack.sh script? I've run into an issue after updating my SL2 with the latest and greatest firmware from Microsoft where I'm unable to get an IPv4 address on anything but an unsecured network.00:31:39
@v12venator:matrix.orgv12venatorI'm running Arch with the linux-surface kernel, got the linux-firmware-surface-laptop-2 and the AUR version of libwacom-surface00:36:47

since you at least didn't brick it I'd try reflashing it in Windows if that's possible?
06:35:32
@mobyturbo:matrix.orgEdLinthe Linux flashing is marked as "alpha" in the repository, which means in my mind that it's going to be a bit dangerous, even leading to bricking. (Permanent disabling of device.)06:36:46
@mobyturbo:matrix.orgEdLinas "flashing firmware" and "alpha level bugs" don't sound like a very safe combination, it's best tested if you can spare the device when something goes wrong...06:37:39
@v12venator:matrix.orgv12venatorI can try that route this afternoon once I get back from work.10:19:34

Hey guys, been tying to get the pen to work on my sp7 (whitout luck) so here's what I've done:

  • install Intel Precise Touch & Stylus (from linux-surface /
    intel-precise-touch ) using this command ( sudo make dkms-install, then reeboted and enrroled secure boot key)
  • Downloaded and install dev version of iptsd from linux-surface/iptsd (rebooted just to be shure)
  • run iptsd with hidraw id from demsg output (sudo iptsd /dev/hidraw1). Is there anything that I'm missing

@diogocardoso28:matrix.orgDiogo CardosoPS: I'm on 5.19.10-surface10:40:45

@tmsp:matrix.orgDorian StollIf you installed iptsd it should launch automatically. Don't launch it a second time10:41:49
@tmsp:matrix.orgDorian StollAlso does touch work?10:42:33
@diogocardoso28:matrix.orgDiogo Cardoso

Rebooted (twice) and something strange happened:

  • On the 1st reboot the touchscreen worked on the login screen but did nothing after it
  • on the 2nd reboot it never worked
10:45:42
@diogocardoso28:matrix.orgDiogo Cardosousig ps command I can see the iptsd should be worknig 10:45:55

@diogocardoso28:matrix.orgDiogo Cardosois there any way that I can confirm if IPTS driver is the custom built version?10:48:24

@v12venator:matrix.orgv12venatorWelp, starting to feel insane now. SL2 is picking up IPv4 address without any issues. Linux'd Surface devices are wonky22:28:23
@v12venator:matrix.orgv12venatorReverted back to linux-firmware-marvell and linux-firmware-whence from Arch repos running mwifiex 15.68.19.p21 and for some reason, this time it worked22:31:54
@v12venator:matrix.orgv12venatorReboot and it's gone. This machine's haunted22:36:37
@v12venator:matrix.orgv12venatorSeen an error message in dmesg "mwifiex_pcie invalid AID value 0x1; bits 15:14 not set" I think that might have something to do with it. That was loading the 10.68.7.p154 firmware version from linux-firmware-surface-laptop-223:11:46
