The issue with the touchpad is caused by the trusty and utopic kernels not fully supporting it. Full support for that touchpad is available in kernel 4.0+ so I would recommend downloading and installing the latest stable kernel (currently 4.0.3) onto your system and testing it out, it works flawlessly on my UX303LAB laptop. mkdir /tmp/kernel-mainline_4.0.3 ...
