Difficulty Using Touchpad on Surface Pro 2


I installed Garuda Gaming Edition on an old Microsoft Surface Pro 2 and I'm impressed with how well it has worked. The only issue is that it interprets the touch pad on the typing cover as a mouse. I cannot, therefore, use the options like double tap to drag. I see that there is an option in the touchpad settings to ignore things that are improperly identified as a mouse, but there's a red indicator at the top that informs me there is no touchpad at the top of the settings page, and thus I cannot interact with this portion of the settings.

There's this item on the Arch wiki page for the Surface 3: https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Microsoft_Surface_Pro_3#Enabling_Touchpad

It's possible that you'll need to make some manual tweaks to get it working...
