After installing `xf86-input-libinput', the touchpad and touchscreen should use libinput automatically. You can verify this by checking ~/.local/share/xorg/Xorg.0.log.

The only config I have is for the pen. You can find it here: https://github.com/chadvoegele/system-configs/blob/master/chadsurface/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/40-spi_pen.conf.pkg. I did a small write up of my Surface 3 installation steps here: https://blog.chadvoegele.com/posts/post2.html

hmmm, could you post your lib input configs as i am unable to get multitouch on the touchpad to work

Glad it works for you, vguywithabowtie!

Both pinching and expanding a page on the touchscreen and two finger scroll on the touchpad work for me in Chromium so kernel support for multi-touch is there. Perhaps the particular software you are using doesn't support multi-touch. Also, I'd recommend the libinput driver if you are not using it.

As far as I know, what doesn't work is:
- second button on pen
- top, purple button on pen

I haven't tested:
- display port output
- cameras
- lid switch

Patches are welcome! :)
