there is no cursor and touchpad not working. I was trying to install Ubuntu 15.10 but I could not even finish installation without it... Anyone here to help? Someone posted this problem on the same computer 2months ago, but I didn't see it solved
It seems this may already have a kernel available and should be included in 4.5 kernel as well:
You may be able to install using usb mouse + Ubuntu 15.10 and then apply the kernel available via comment #24 of the link (assuming that its a UX305CA). You would then need to continue using that kernel for use of the touchpad.
Ubuntu 16.04 for instance will ship with 4.4 kernel so even for that you'd have a problem for install. Possibly 16.10 will finally make things easier that way here or possibly something like 16.04.1 if it includes kernel update.
I have an ASUS UX305FA my touchpad was working fine during the installation of ubuntu. It worked fine for another hour then something happend, my pointer disappeared and I could not use my touchpad anymore. I am trying to understand what happened but I cannot get a clue.
This post helped to mitigate the problem: Synaptic touchpad on laptop not working
Now I can use the touchpad as a mouse but commands made by two fingers are not working. It works like a mouse and not like a touchpad.
The funny thing is that if I access the system as Guest the touchpad works properly. I installed ubuntu 16.04 beta 2 and my xinput output is:
Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)] ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer id=4 [slave pointer (2)] ↳ ETPS/2 Elantech Touchpad id=12 [slave pointer (2)]
if I type: cat /proc/bus/input/devices I get:
