The best linux status information for the yoga 260 is at the Arch Wiki: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Lenovo_Thinkpad_Yoga_260
I'm running Debian Stretch - which is currently "testing". It has Gnome 3.
When you login you can select if you use Xserver or Wayland.
I use Chrome. With Xserver, I can only scroll by using two fingers on the page or using a the scroll bar and no other gestures work.
Last night I discovered that with Wayland, I can scroll using a single finger, make the page bigger by "unpinching" two fingers and go back to a previous page by swiping from left to write - like your swiping the current page away.
Chrome has several virtual keyboards available as extensions. The first one I tried which had the most comments didn't work for me - it wouldn't bring up a keyboard in the search bar. I'm currently using "Keyboard" from http://www.123easywebsites.com/ and it's working ok.
There is a Gnome Shell Integration extensions. If you add that then you can install gnome instructions through Chrome at the click of a button. It puts a little gnome footprint in your tool bar.
Gnome extensions can be installed through the Chrome extension mentioned above by going to https://extensions.gnome.org/.
Caffeine - disables the screensaver and autosuspend - installed after trying to use my "tablet" as a recipe book - it's really annoying trying to enter a password with floury fingers.
On Screen Keyboard Button - to get an on screen keyboard you have to enable it all the time. (well that's what I've worked out so far). This extensions puts a little a in your gnome toolbar so you can turn it off.
Dash to Dock - puts a dock hidden to one side of your screen - handy for switching apps in tablet mode.
Netspeed - reports netspeed - nothing to do with tablets but it's cool
This article has a good list:
Currently running 4.9 installed from source following these excellent instructions:
This gave me two buttons on my pen and I think the multitouch behaviour in touch screen mode became better. The impression I have is that the touch screen behaviour became much more precise, less sluggish but I could be wrong - maybe it was always that good and I was just getting used to it.
I turned the trackpad off because it's annoying. With or without it the cursor keeps freezing with:
[30922.323665] psmouse serio1: Touchpad at isa0060/serio1/input0 lost sync at byte 6
[30922.323671] psmouse serio1: issuing reconnect request
And the way to get it back is in a terminal with root permissions to run:
rmmod psmouse; modprobe -a psmouse
Which works but is annoying.
Middle click keeps being ignored and the pointer jumps. That's also annoying.
Tablet Mode works ok - but there is no screen rotation. Locks the keyboard automatically.
Screen rotation does't work because
Waiting for iio-sensor-proxy to appear
+++ iio-sensor-proxy appeared
=== Has accelerometer (orientation: undefined)
=== Has ambient light sensor (value: 0.000000, unit: lux)
4.9 has fixed that for others so I need to investigate further.
That's some rough notes - but I haven't found that information in one spot so I'll publish it rough though it is just in case it helps someone else.
