  ELANtech touchpad simply will not work, no matter what I do.

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  You can read more about it here: 

  I'm not fully sure of the nature of my problem, but was recommended to
  come here with this concern. I have a feeling that the issue is that
  generic Ubuntu drivers do not provide full support for all ELANtech
  touchpads. In searching various forums for help, it seemed to me as
  though system76.com may have previously offered drivers that were
  capable of fixing some slightly older ELANtech touchpads, but I do not
  think these can still be downloaded. Furthermore, I think they may
  have only fixed laptops just slightly older than mine.

  The package I am using is most likely "xserver-xorg-input-synaptics".

  I expected the cursor to move when I touched the touchpad, but
  instead, nothing happens. I have successfully been able to use a USB
  mouse, but it is a bit inconvenient to try and use everywhere, since I
  am a college student and all of our desks are ridiculously small.
