I am using Ubuntu 18.04 with Kernel 4.18, I have had the touchpad working before but wanted to do a dual boot so started from scratch. everything is working except touchpad. for xinput i get this Virtual core XTEST pointer Logitech M570 (the one i am using to do stuff) ITE Tech. Inc. ITE Device (8910) Consumer Control

In the Grub i have this (only way i could get past the black screen, even after the kernel update and Nvidia driver install) GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi_osi=!"

  • Instead you can write it: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash pci=noaer" – Marcos Silveira Sep 12 '18 at 17:41
  • That did the tricked, it is now fixed. Thank you – jason seymour Sep 12 '18 at 18:08

I have a Asus Notebook too (X510UR). The GRUB statement is not correct to this hardware.

Please update the GRUB statement GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi_osi=!" to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash pci=noaer" and reboot.

I think that will be enough. Good luck.
