I got my 12th gen batch 2 laptop yesterday. Installed Windows 11 Pro from a USB stick first. Right away the trackpad did not have a right click or two-finger scroll. Ran the Framework driver update first (Framework Laptop BIOS and Driver Releases (12th Gen Intel® Core™)), then all the available Windows updates. Still no go, so I ran the Framework driver bundle again. Restarted several times in the process. Still no right click or scroll. Also installed Fedora 36 to dual boot - all trackpad functionality works fine in Fedora. What am I missing? Feeling dumb, and a little frustrated.
Edit: Also the brightness controls don’t work on Windows. Didn’t test in Fedora yet.
Ok, I was a little dumb. Somehow I got on the 11th gen page and didn’t notice it. So I installed the wrong package. Mouse stopped working entirely, so I got to tab around to install and run the correct one. Everything seems to work now!
Framework, would you mind updating the link on this page to default to the 12th gen updates, since that’s what the majority of people are receiving and setting up now? I know it says 11th gen, click here for 12th gen right in the title, but I was too tired and too excited to set up the computer.
I was really tired, but wanted to get the computer going for a work trip the next day. So, once I got Windows installed, I opened the DIY page, and then just clicked the link in the intro to go get the drivers (instead of scrolling all the way down to the last step) since I knew that was the first thing I should do. Anyhow, I know I could have read more and avoided this, but I was tired and rushing. Just hoping that changing that link in the intro might prevent anyone else from having the same dumb moment.
Yes, exactly. Once on that page, being tired and rushed, I just looked right at the table and chose the download, rather than reading the top. So I ended up grabbing the wrong drivers. Just figured that link could now be directed the the 12th gen driver page.
