Gifted a probably busted i5 XPS 12. It has the flipable touch screen that converts to a tablet in Win 10.

Don’t care too much about that.

But booting to Mint from USB, the touchpad was essentially unusable, and I DO care about that.

Any suggestions on a Linux that will work from the get-go on this machine?

Looking like its future may be more as a frisbee.

Manjaro, thus may work due to a newer kernel. Does the trackpad work in win 10?
Yeah, it works perfectly in Windows.

Has to be a driver/software issue or conflict.

OTOH, the battery doesn’t charge under Windows, cannot figure that one out at all.

I think that if you order an XPS from Dell with linux, they use Ubuntu (somebody can correct me if I'm wrong)....
