View Full Version : ASUS ROG G751 - Ubuntu 16.04 - Issues with trackpad

April 30th, 2016, 05:22 PM
Hi all!

I have an ASUS ROG G751 that most functionality worked with the trackpad on 15.10. Upon upgrading to 16.04, I'm having some issues..

Here's the issue:

The trackpad works, but the mouse buttons do not, this is unless I touch and hold the trackpad then click. Which when doing this, only the left click works and not the right. Tapping twice on the trackpad does allow me to double click, but is rather annoying to do.

Are there any ideas? Were there any significant changes with the drivers?

Another, very weird thing I discovered. if I multitouch two fingers on the trackpad, then left click I'm able to get the functionality of the right click. lol.. Very weird.
