I tried to install FreeBSD on my Geobook 13.3 it's an ultrabook/laptop with very good battery life of at least 8-9 hours, M2 SSD, 4 GB ram, Intel UHD graphics and a beautiful high resolution perfect screen, aluminum body and slim.
In FreeBSD it works :
1) Graphics drivers with very good performance.
2) Wifi works perfectly
3) SSD works nicely

What it doesn't work:
1) Sound doesn't work, it has a Realtek chipset ALC and some numbers I don't remember
2) Touchpad doesn't work

Is there anything we can do?

I was looking in the forum for a solution on my sound problems and in a random post I found someone that had the same problem! I would found his post earlier if it had bigger font size.
Now I need to find a way to make touchpad working.

A handbook contains the general, most common cases, for which the drivers work perfectly.

What does the touchpad show up as under Linux?
From my googling it seems to be a 'HID over I2C' touchpad but that may not be correct.
There are various brands touchpads like Elantech and Synaptics which have various quirks.
It would help to know the actual device you are trying to get working.
