[Bug 1536038] Re: ELAN1000 touchpad not recognised correctly, with upstream kernel it recognised, but freezes randomly


Kulcsár Gergő, to advise, you wouldn't need to test a Ubuntu 4.2.x
kernel here.

However, what would be more helpful is if the scope of this report is
modified to how in Xenial where the 4.3.x fixes land, after a while the
touchpad freezes.

Hence, could you please confirm this via http://cdimage.ubuntu.com
/daily-live/current/ and advise to the results?

  ELAN1000 touchpad not recognised correctly, with upstream kernel it
  recognised, but freezes randomly

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I've got an ASUS E403SA notebook with Ubuntu 15.10 and kernel
  4.2.0-23-generic from default repository. The touchpad is in PS/2
  mouse emulation mode so multitouch like two-finger scrolling is not

  Dmesg output attached and xinput --list shows:

  The correct driver merged in 4.3.x kernel so I decided to test it from
  mainline repo http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/

  With kernel 4.3.x and newer the touchpad recognised correctly and
  multitouch works. After a while (minutes, sometimes hours) the
  touchpad completely freezes with this message in syslog:
