I have some trouble with my new laptop, Asus K501UW.
One of the troubles is that my touchpad does not seem to work properly: it is recognized as mouse (so I can use it, tap as LMB and use the physical touchpad buttons) but not as a touchpad (so I cannot do two-finger tap as RMB or two-finger scroll).
The bug is extremely resemblant of the one here: (late 2014) but the alternative kernel from there does not seem to work (besides the fact that it is obsolete and the patch should already be included in the upstream kernel).
According to the thread here (summer 2016), this is still a relatively common problem with more recent asus laptops.
I am running LM18 with kernel 4.4.0-21.
The relevant part from /proc/bus/input/devices:
Code: Select all
I: Bus=0018 Vendor=0b05 Product=0101 Version=0100 N: Name="FTE1001:00 0B05:0101" P: Phys=i2c-FTE1001:00 S: Sysfs=/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:15.1/i2c_designware.1/i2c-5/i2c-FTE1001:00/0018:0B05:0101.0003/input/input15 U: Uniq= H: Handlers=mouse1 event15 B: PROP=0 B: EV=17 B: KEY=30000 0 0 0 0 B: REL=103 B: MSC=10
Since the issue has been known for two years and the patch has been issued a while ago, I expect the solution to be relatively simple (e.g. force the new device use an older driver), but I'm too much of a newb to find it on my own. Any help is appreciated.
