I installed UberStudent (loving it) on my Acer C720 but my touchpad doesn't work. Any recommendation to get it to work?

Also, I thought I had installed UberStudent so it won't dual boot with Chromebook but when I restart it always takes me to the OS verification screen where I have to hit CTRL L and then select UberStudend to launch. How can I default it so UberStudent launches automatically?

This should do the trick.

UberStudent does contain the modules. They are located at

Code:
/lib/modules/3.13.0-24-generic/kernel/drivers/platform/chrome/chromeos_laptop.ko
/lib/modules/3.13.0-24-generic/kernel/drivers/i2c/busses/i2c-designware-core.ko
/lib/modules/3.13.0-24-generic/kernel/drivers/i2c/busses/i2c-designware-pci.ko
/lib/modules/3.13.0-24-generic/kernel/drivers/i2c/busses/i2c-designware-platform.ko

So take these steps:

1. Save the file cros-haswell-modules.sh to your home directory (home/yourusername/)

2. Right-click it and go to Properties > Permissions and tick "Allow this to run as a program"

3. Open a terminal and run:
Code:
sudo $HOME/cros-haswell-modules.sh

4. Now run the following in a terminal one line at a time:
Code:
synclient AreaRightEdge=850 &
synclient AreaLeftEdge=50 &
synclient TapButton1=1 &
synclient TapButton2=3 &
synclient TapButton3=2 &
synclient FingerHigh=10 &
synclient FingerLow=10 &

5. Reboot

Let me know if this fixes the issue. If it does, I will make a package that one can just install that does all of this automatically and upload it to the UberStudent repository.

As for your boot screen, does it look like this but with Chrome OS also listed as installed?

I tried the steps as directed but something isn't right. I'm new to linux so I'm not sure what I might have done wrong. Here is what I received when I ran the file. Please let me know what might need to change. Thanks for your help.

I've tried numerous adjustments to the script and have made progress, but currently stall at this error:

File to patch:

Since this is a complex issue affecting only users of a specific laptop, please give me several days to explore this and see what I can do. I may end up wanting you to install Chrome Remote Desktop and, with your permission and alongside you, allowing me to remotely access your machine for a session. At this point, I am unsure if the errors I am getting relate to the script or the fact that I just do not own an Acer 720; so, having brief access to the actual machine might help tremendously. :geek:

In the meantime, please continue to use a mouse attached via USB to your Acer 720. :)

No problem. Happy to allow you to remote in if that helps. Perhaps I will learn something. Just glad you are willing to help. Not sure if it will help but here is one source I found that mentions touch pads but I'm not knowledgeable with UberStudent to know what is applicable and what is not.

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Ac ... el_modules

This page also explains the issue I have with the OS verification screen due to the write protect screw being in place. It does not look like the screen you provided I understand it is something in place that prevents me from making the SeaBIOS default. I was thinking I would try following the steps to remove the screw once I found out that I can fix the touchpad.

Let me know if you want to sync up for a remote.
Thanks,
James

Yes, yesterday I was looking over that page at the ArchLinux wiki.

Please send me a private message (click the pm button) here on the forums containing information so I can connect with you via Instant Messenger or Skype.

Hi!

I have an Acer c720p chromebook and i have the exact same problem with the touchpad and the startup screen. Did you guys solve it?
Before the screen that you linked a picture of there is another screen belonging to chrome OS that tells you that you are in developer mode.

Thanks in advance!
