    Windows 8.1 improves the trackpad behavior greatly , ¿ have we got any chance that those new drivers would be adapted to ubuntu ?

    at the moment, trackpad at series 9 using ubuntu are very jumpy.

    Re: HOWTO: Series 9 Elantech Touchpad Ubuntu 12.10, Mint 14

    Hi guys!
    I own an ASUS X551CA. I'm running 12.04 lts with kernel 3.5.0-44-generic.

    dmesg shows:
    psmouse serio4: elantech: unknown hardware version, aborting...

    xinput list shows:
    PS/2 Elantech Touchpad id=12 (slave pointer(2))

    So I built version 6 correctly, I rebooted and it was recognized as ETF1059 (by xinput) but I was not able to scroll with two finers and, in the settings, I could not even enable multitouch.

    So I tried to build elantech-v7 but I get:
    ERROR (dkms apport): binary package for psmouse: elantech-v7 not found

    Do you have any idea?

    I just updated to kernel 3.8 and i did install elantech-v7 and for the first time in this computer i am happy with the way the trackpad reacts now.

    Hello!

    I have an ASUS X551CA running Mint 16, kernel version 3.11.0-12-generic, and I too have problems with my touchpad (scrolling doesn't work and the touchpad is not properly recognized).

    I tried the solution proposed, but when I run
    Code:
    sudo dkms build -m psmouse -v elantech-v6
    I get the following output:
    Code:
    Kernel preparation unnecessary for this kernel.  Skipping...
    
    Building module:
    cleaning build area....
    make  KERNELRELEASE=3.11.0-12-generic -C /lib/modules/3.11.0-12-generic/build  M=/var/lib/dkms/psmouse/elantech-v6/build/src psmouse.ko.....(bad exit  status: 2)
    ERROR (dkms apport): binary package for psmouse: elantech-v6 not found
    Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 3.11.0-12-generic (x86_64)
    Consult /var/lib/dkms/psmouse/elantech-v6/build/make.log for more information.
    Could someone help me through this?

    I am also very interested into knowing if peppezic managed to solve the problem, as we have the exact same laptop.

    Thank you very much!
