How to fix Dell XPS 13 Touchscreen on Fedora 20

I recently purchased a Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook with the touch screen and immediately wiped the blazing fast SSD free of all Microsoft garbage. After installing the latest Fedora 20 64 bit, I was pleased to see that most all of the hardware worked out of the box…

Except the touch screen – one of the features I was most looking forward to using in meetings, etc.

Rest assured, it’s easily brought to life.

Firstly, be sure to apply all yum updates to bring your system current.

Next, create a file called usbhid.conf in /etc/modprobe.d/

On a single line, type the following exactly as it appears:

options usbhid quirks=0x06cb:0x0af8:0x20000000

Last, simply save the file and reboot your system.

🙂
