Figured I would kick off a Surface Pro 3 thread. Running an i5 128gb model with a type cover keyboard. So far the only issue preventing me form using Ubuntu as a daily driver is the lack of keyboard support for the type cover. The trackpad on the type cover works well, so that's a start.
I wonder if anyone knows how to modify the patch provided at http://linux-kernel.2935.n7.nabble.c...-td790242.html to support the new type cover.
Thanks for any help anyone provides, and I'll be looking into compiling my own kernel in the coming week. Good luck everyone!
Edit: Also thought I should note that I used the most recent patched kernel listed in this thread about type covers for the 1st and 2nd models (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...183946&page=13) with no luck.
Edit 2: Just installed a bunch of updates from my Windows partition. One of them overwrote my bootloader and I had to boot from my Ubuntu USB installer and run boot-repair to reinstall GRUB. I also noticed that the updates must have changed the firmware of the type cover: the trackpad has stopped working. Now only the pen or an external mouse will work as a pointing device.
Edit 3: Turns out I was wrong about the trackpad no longer working. It just seems to not work on some boots. More research required...
