I have an Asus G750. The touchpad (Elantech) works fine on Windows 8. However, after installing ubuntu the right mouse button is not recognized. The 'synaptiks touchpad management' software shows a cross sign under Touchpad Configuration->Hardware Information->Right Button. Similarly, from command line
shiva@shiva-G750JX:~$ xinput --list-props "ETPS/2 Elantech Touchpad" | grep Capabilities Synaptics Capabilities (302): 1, 0, 0, 1, 1, 1, 1
Which also, I believe, means 'right button not working'. Looking up all the help on this forum, I tried setting the "Soft Button Areas" parameter, but that did not change anything.
Can someone please help?
