Re: touchpad driver issue for asus vivobook x15 510un


a quick google search suggested, you might have an elantech touchpad. Some of those seem to have some issues with the newest Linux kernels. See this bug report and look if it could apply to you.
They give two solutions:
The first one is more temporary. Just type

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

and see if it works.

The second is to boot the kernel with parameter


If you do not know how to do that, look here.

Hope it helps or at least leads you to the right track
