[Solved] Focaltech Touchpad Patch

Hello!

Could someone point me on how to merge the patch for the Focaltech touchpad into the kernel? Below is the link to the git branch in which the driver was created. This seems to be merged in the linux-next branch of the kernel.

https://github.com/mgottschlag/linux/tree/focaltech3

Thank you!

Re: [Solved] Focaltech Touchpad Patch

If you don't want to build the whole kernel, you could also try an out-of-tree build of the module. By the way, I believe focaltech support is planned to be in 3.20.

svn export https://github.com/mgottschlag/linux/branches/focaltech3/drivers/input/mouse/
cd mouse
make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build M=$PWD

Re: [Solved] Focaltech Touchpad Patch

I've bought a fresh new laptop, ASUS R510JK-XX142H which ships a FocalTech touchpad:

38: PS/2 00.0: 10500 PS/2 Mouse
  [Created at input.249]
  Unique ID: AH6Q.TodZV2Q6ie8
  Hardware Class: mouse
  Model: "PS/2 FocalTech FocalTech Touchpad in mouse emulation mode"
  Vendor: 0x0002 
  Device: 0x0001 "PS/2 FocalTech FocalTech Touchpad in mouse emulation mode"
  Compatible to: int 0x0210 0x0002
  Device File: /dev/input/mice (/dev/input/mouse0)
  Device Files: /dev/input/mice, /dev/input/mouse0, /dev/input/event5, /dev/input/by-path/platform-i8042-serio-4-event-mouse, /dev/input/by-path/platform-i8042-serio-4-mouse
  Device Number: char 13:63 (char 13:32)
  Driver Info #0:

    Wheels: 0
    XFree86 Protocol: explorerps/2

But @propagandy I believe we won't have Linux 3.19, will we? Methinks we'll get Linux 4.0 soon smile
So I'm ready to wait a little for that new branch. I hope it wil solve my touchpadbug~

We already have 3.19. The decision to change 3.20 to 4.0 was made after I wrote that post.

If you want to test now, you can get a compiled 4.0-rc5 kernel (linux-mainline) from miffe

Hi,
Sorry but what name for the module & where?
Maybe some current kernel settings should be defined as modules?
[using gentoo here, so full customized slim kernel with almost no kernel modules]

Thks for your attention
