I installed Ubuntu 18.04 on ASUS ROG GL503VD my touchpad not working correctly It works fine in windows but in Ubuntu, it just disconnects and pops up at anywhere on the screen and yes external mouse working fine

after xinput -list i found out my touchpad model : elan1200:00 04f3:3090 touchpad

and I am new to Linux so please help in detail thanks for the help


Updating to kernel version 5.2 helped me too, but the touchpad dies after suspend. This is my solution:

Create file in /lib/systemd/system-sleep/with this content:

if [ "${1}" = "post" ]; then
    modprobe -r i2c_hid
    modprobe i2c_hid

And dont forget chmod +x.

  • On kernel 5.0, this did the trick for me, no need to upgrade the kernel. – MariusMatutiae Nov 14 '19 at 11:52

Updating to kernel version 5.2 finally did the trick for me
