GPD P2 Max Keyboard and TouchPad upgrade program

Please find the GPD P2 Max Keyboard and TouchPad upgrade below:

This update supports and enables the Microsoft Precision TouchPad controls in the Windows settings.

I could see general improvement in the TouchPad feedback. You no longer need to click the bottom most left corner to click, it can be an approximate position on the left bottom and the right bottom for the left and right clicks.

This upgrade really works fine!
Unfortunately, the Japanese keyboard users meet some problems. This PTP driver may contain the English keyboard driver and it overwrites Japanese one.

We should wait for a while to receive the fixed PTP driver for Japanese keyboard, right? ♪( ´θ`)ノ

Yeah I saw this and installed it right away - it felt better right away, and generally having the windows controls for all this made a huge difference
of note when i personally started the app my keyboard and mouse stopped responding until a reboot, but a usb mouse allowed me to do that gracefully.

Full windows control over the gestures - finally my IGG comments are resolved.

Thanks @aravind I had seen this but been busy and unable to put it in here so thanks for sorting.

This is excellent news. Can I ask as I’ve not had chance to look at it is this applied as firmware / bios update or just a software driver. The reason I ask is I wonder if this will not only improve for windows users but also improve for Linux users too?

Thanks

@admin It’s a firmware update. I just applied it and it’s working much better under Linux too.

You can now use the native touchpad settings of your desktop environment and customize everything you want to. (e.g. disable tab to click)

Amazing @minextu just what I’ve been waiting for. Epic I’m made up. When I get back later I will do mine. Thanks very much.

As @dtrwos quoted, the keyboard and touch-pad stops working after the update. You need an external mouse to restart the notebook. After that the controls appear in the windows settings menu.

And the gestures work like a charm. This update is really magical and I am happy about it :slight_smile:

Thanks very much @minextu
I’ve done some basic testing this evening. The touchpad is very much improved in both Windows and Linux. Great Work GPD! Nice.

Yes I am not getting used to the device without any external mouse. Using an external mouse in a way was defeating the notebooks portability, which required us to carry an extra mouse.

Can you please provide instructions for how to install this update on a linux?

You would need to run the windows executable application to upgrade the firmware in Windows or a Windows PE usb then simply download on the windows live PE and run the executable. Connect a external mouse so you can click start. When it goes green reboot the laptop.

I did a dual boot so I have windows 10 home on small partition off the ssd.

I also run Linux only, we need an option for Linux, does not make sense to spend so much to have Windows working every time there is an update.

@casainho it does not take too much time or effort to create a Windows PE on usb drive which you keep to use for when you need to install firmware. This is a simple solution as I’d very much doubt GPD will give a Linux solution.

You can follow these steps to create a bootable usb Windows PE which will enable you to download and run the GPD firmware updates.

I do appreciate @casainho what your saying and that you shouldn’t have to but currently GPD are not supporting Linux officially until the Ubuntu Mate release in October. I’m still highly doubting they will release Linux updates even after that.
