[SOLVED] Elantech touchpad (ELAN1401) is only partially working

Hello,

so I've got this fancy new laptop with its fancy problems. My touchpad's button (lower clickable part) does not seem to work at all.

With the help of

libinput debug-events

and

evtest /dev/input/eventX

I have confirmed that click event is not being generated.

I have tried adding these parameters to my bootloader, however nothing worked:

i8042.noloop i8042.nomux i8042.nopnp i8042.reset i8042.kbdreset=1

My dmesg log (below) seems to have a lot of ACPI errors and some warnings for my touchpad.

Thanks for help in advance!

Re: [SOLVED] Elantech touchpad (ELAN1401) is only partially working

Are you using gnome3? I remember I had to hack dcof somewhere to get my elan to work "properly I needed to do gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.touchpad click-method 'areas' but there are other settings there to.
   

. gsettings list-recursively org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.touchpad 

should give you a list of more stuff that gnome overwrite in its settings.

If it is not there then you will probably need to change your xorg .conf with the settings from https://www.mankier.com/4/libinput button areas thingy (cannot remember exatly what is was for me because gnome3 was taking over)

Re: [SOLVED] Elantech touchpad (ELAN1401) is only partially working

Thanks! I've finally got it working... Kinda.

It seems that for some reason clickpad was not active even when it is initially set as active with correct xinput prop value. I'll just have to set this prop value to it "current" value every time I boot up linux.

It seems like my hardware us a little bit too new and kernel needs to catch, but oh well... I'll mark this as solved (or not since I can't edit title for some reason).

Your title is too long, shorten it to get the point/issue across and add [SOLVED] then.
