linux 4.8.0 kernel .config file
I'm dualbooting Windows 10 and Ubuntu 18.104.22.168, tried Ubuntu 17.04 live cd with kernel 4.10.13 too, fedora 25, and all of these problems persist.
Can't manage to have the backlight keyboard working,
The fn keys for brightness, keyboard light, switch displays, which are f1 through f9 don't have any use.
And most importantly the Touchpad doesn't function at all.

This problems with many new ASUS notebooks(see bugs 191651, 112531) :( Very bad then Asus don't want help linux community solve this problems, but linux acpi developers, which can solve this-don't have time/etc. :(
TBH, this sounds like we are missing driver support for some Asus laptop devices, and this should be a vendor driver issue.
And I don't think Linux ACPI developers have the knowledge to fix this.
Reassign to platform drivers.
Ok, I changed to drivers, platform, is that more adequate now? Thank you Zhang Rui
The Asus drivers rely heavily on DMI match to enable some of these features. If you have the ability to build and test kernels, it will be much easier for us (the Platform Driver X86 team) to help get your laptop supported. Is that something you can do?
Something that would be helpful for us is to get an ACPI dump (acpica-tools) and a dmidecode dump from you.
$ sudo dmidecode > dmidecode.log
$ mkdir acpi
$ cd acpi
$ acpidump -b
$ iasl -d *.dat
$ rm *.dat
$ cd ..
$ tar cjf acpi.tar.bz2 acpi
Then attach the dmidecode.log and the acpi.tar.bz2 files here. We probably only need dsdt.dsl if you don't want to post it all, but we may have to come back to you for the more.
Also, please provide the output of "lsmod" to list which drivers are loaded.

I had added already dmidecode and acpi tables but they have all the acpi information, some that concerned me it may have private information or device specific, however I had them marked obsolete since I couldn't edit or delete them.
Thank you for your help.
OK, so the _WDG buffer contains the ASUS_BM_WMI_EVENT_GUID, so we should be able to support it by figuring out which quirks are right for your laptop, and then adding an entry matching your DMI data to the asus_quirks table - at a minimum. It's possible it will also need a new quirk. I'm going to review with Corentin for the best way to go about testing changing. We'll pick this up on list.
Aha, looking at those other bugs, we need to first determine how these keys are connected. Since I don't have this laptop in front of me, can you enumerate which keys exist, and which keys work (if any) already. I'm beginning to think this is not an asus_nb_wmi hotkey issue, but rather an asus_hid and elan touch issue, as noted in the other bugs.
I can't make the combo keys fn + f1,f2,...,f9. They are not recognised.
f1 - sleep,
f2 - airplane mode,
f3 and f4 - keyboard backlight,
f5 and f6 - screen brightness,
f8 - display mode,
f9 - touchpad on and off
The new kernel fixed all of my FN keys on a G752VS, however the Elantech 1203 touchpad is still dead. The following lines appear while booting:
[6.110760] i2c_designware i2c_designware.1: controller timed out
[6.110768] i2c_hid i2c-ELAN1203:00: hid_descr_cmd failed
Once booted I no longer see this in xinput:
ELAN1203:00 04F3:301E Touchpad id=15 [slave pointer (2)]
With the previous kernel 4.10 this was still present in xinput.
Also when I press the FN key F9 to enable/disable touchpad, the system displays only disable.
