Hello, I have an AVATAR ultrabook, this model: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834686004
They're a relatively little-known brand and I can't even find any instances of someone purchasing a product of theirs and installing any kind of Linux distribution on it.
I am running Xubuntu 12.10, on the latest kernel available (3.5.0-19).
It uses an Elantech Touchpad. However, I am unable to use two finger scrolling or any other kind of multitouch feature. There is no "Touchpad" option under the Xubuntu Mouse and Touchpad setting. gpointing-device-settings also has no touchpad options.
Output from various commands:
$ synclient -l
Couldn't find synaptics properties. No synaptics driver loaded?
$ xinput list
PS/2 Elantech Touchpad id=12 [slave pointer(2)]
I've seen lots of other people having issues with Elantech touchpads, but their issues all seemed to have been resolved with kernel patches tailored to their laptop model.
$ dmesg | grep 'elantech'
elantech: assuming hardware version 4 (with firmware version 0x361f00)
elantech: elantech_send_cmd query 0x02 failed.
elantech: failed to query capabilities.
(repeated many times)
Does anyone have any advice for me? Experimental drivers or kernel modules to try, or something?
