I have the Asus E205SA, same touchpad, same issue.
I have verified mainline kernels up to 4.7rc7 with Ubuntu 16.04.

Comment 4 Urko Masse 2016-08-04 03:07:18 UTC
Hello,
I have in my hands a slightly different Asus E205SA. This one comes with an Elan Touchpad.
On the outside it looks exactly the same.
The other E205SA with the malfunctioning touchpad, has vendor id "0b05", which is:
vendor: 0b05 ("ASUSTek Computer, Inc.")

Could it be that ASUSTek touchpads are actually rebranded Elan?
Is there any way to force loading the Elan driver for this touchpad, and see if it works?
It could be that the driver already exists and just needs to be modified to match the id 0b05:0101?

Please help. I have 35 Asus E205SA in my school, and they perform so much better with Linux!

This device is not a Focaltech.

See https://github.com/vlasenko/hid-asus-dkms for a driver.
Comment 9 Vladimir Musikhin 2017-01-12 14:47:38 UTC
The 4.10-rc3 kernel has support for the touchpad.
