   [Asus X550LD] Touchpad not working - Ubuntu 14.04

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Touchpad on the Asus X550LD is not working on Ubuntu 14.04 with either
  default or mainline kernel 3.15.0-031500-generic.

  Cursor does make some movements if you insist toying and clicking on
  the touchpad, but only seldomly (just using it normally often would
  produce no move), and in a direction that apparently has no relation
  with touch. Generally moves towards bottom, bottom/left, but insisting
  one can have patchy movements in other directions. However, clicking
  has no effect.

  Mouse connected with USB works normally, until you try to use the
  touchpad. If you touch the touchpad, the cursor mostly keeps on moving
  as per the mouse, but click mostly does not work. Logging out and
  logging in or restarting fixes the problem.

  WORKAROUND: Use external USB mouse but don't touch the touchpad.
