[Bug 1584479] Re: MSI touchpad not detected on 16.04


Did this issue start happening after an update/upgrade?  Was there a
prior kernel version where you were not having this particular problem?

Would it be possible for you to test the latest upstream kernel? Refer
to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds . Please test the latest
v4.6 kernel[0].

If this bug is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following
tag 'kernel-fixed-upstream'.

If the mainline kernel does not fix this bug, please add the tag:

Once testing of the upstream kernel is complete, please mark this bug as

Thanks in advance.

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I just install Ubuntu 16.04 on my new MSI laptop G72 6QE.
  My touchpad doesn't work and recognize at all.

  I try :
  - Fn+F3 to activate my touchpad
  - xinput list and is not listed
  - xev and nothing append (no signal)
  - cat /proc/bus/input/devices ddoesn't display touchpad (only HDMI, mic, headphone, external mouse and keyboard)
  - I don't know if there is a link, but some buttons of my keyboard don't work (like Fn+arrows to manage sound and luminosity) :
