  Precision Touchpad does not work in Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS after
  installing ubuntu on new Acer Aspire E 13 ES1-311C03V

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  On my new Acer Aspire E 13 ES1-311C03V i installed a dual boot with
  Ubuntu 14.04

  The touchpad (labeled as PRECISION TOUCHPAD on the sticker on the
  computer) works fine on windows 8, but not in ubuntu (from the
  beginning). In windows everything works, but in Ubuntu it does not
  respond at all.

  An external mouse does work fine, it is only the touchpad that does
  not work.

  instructs to attatch ~/dmesg, ~/devices, and  /var/log/Xorg.0.lo but
  launchpad only allows one attatchement so i will combine them in an

  Any help/soludion/fix will be much appreciated, as i have been using
  ubuntu for years now on previous computers, and i would really regret
  it having to change back to windows because the touchpad is not
  working on my new laptop.

  EDIT: after searching even more on the internet i found a work around for similar types of laptops:  echo "blacklist i2c_hid" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
  Afterwards i rebooted but the touchpad still did not work, but when i shut down my computer later and restarted is a second time the touchpad started working! So i guess that is because of this work around.
