Would suggest you consider opening a feature request asking for CONFIG_PINCTRL_AMD to be enabled in the linux package.

Re: [SOLVED] Elantech touchpad is not working nor detected

Hi!

I have similar problem. I use workaround and run command:

sudo sh -c 'echo -n "elantech" > /sys/bus/serio/devices/serio1/protocol"

And this works, but I have to run this command alway after run. So, I thought that yours solution will be good, but doesn't work for me. Can you explain how you compile kernel? I follow instruction (my steps bellow), but mayby I made something wrong.

$ cd ~/
$ mkdir build
$ cd build/
$ asp update linux
$ asp checkout linux
$ cd repos/core-x86_64
$ nano config
Search CONFIG_PINCTRL_AMD and change value to "y"
$ updpkgsums
$ makepkg -sci

Re: [SOLVED] Elantech touchpad is not working nor detected

If you don't have an AMD CPU/board that fix wouldn't help you. There were some elantech based issues in kernels earlier than 4.20.11 make sure your system is updated. If that doesn't help, please open up your own thread with more information, instead of bumping a solved topic.

Closing.
