I am unable to use the touchpad on my new GigaByte P35 v2. I seem to have the problem documented here (elantech touchpad not detected on gigabyte laptop), and here (https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=81331), which has been recently fixed here (https://bugzilla.kernel.org/attachment.cgi?id=161431).
Being a new forum member, I do not have enough reputation points to post a follow-up question to the other thread on this forum.
I have read the top 15 or so hits on Google for applying the patch, but none address this specific issue. Most have a broader focus or expect that the patch comes with some instructions.
I have downloaded the sources for my current kernel version (3.13.0) and have the patch file.
Could someone please tell me how to complete the process?
