I'm new to linux/ubuntu, and I recently purchased an external SIIG docking station and a ASUS zenbook. Booting into an 18.04.1 LTS desktop install on the laptop, two driver issues are evident: 1) the touchpad right-click is not working with the current ubuntu distro provided driver and 2) the driver loading for USB-C (USB 3.1) from the distro only works with the keyboard and mouse through the SIIG docking station. Yes, I've googled linux driver issues although I just want to quickly research (not jump into non-free db update apt-get etc) if drivers are available for these two devices someplace else (community? non-free?). Or do I log the issues with the Ubuntu community for these bugs? Since the distro drivers do seem to recognize the devices, but are only partially functional for both.
I'm having difficulty even identifying what the touch-pad device/manufacturer is on the ASUS zenbook so not even sure where to start/how to research a driver for this guy:

I whiped the Ubuntu install and now I am functional with a Windows10Pro host boot, everything works, but I've had to resort to Ubuntu in a virtualbox VM - this is definitely sub optimal. I'm trying to make the full switch over to linux and I want Windows in the guest VM - so really appreciate any help here.
