Touchpad not responding Asus Rog G752VS


The problem is that after installing Leap 42.1, Leap 42.2 or Thumbleweed I have this problem: touchpad is not working.
Laptop is Asus G752VS, and currently is installed openSUSE 42.2

Hope you have some tips that I can try to enable it.

Thank you.

P.S. I paste the xinput list output, maybe that will help.

Sounds like it’s a an issue with the kernel.

I recommend adding the following line to “GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=” in /etc/default/grub

nouveau.modeset=0  acpi_osi=! acpi_backlight=native  idle=nomwait

Next, type: grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg and reboot.

In the meantime, please submit a bug report with bugzilla so that they add any changes to a kernel update.

Another option is to update the kernel using this repo

Consider using suse-prime with a driver downloaded from the Nvidia site instead of Bumblebee.

FWIW, an Ubuntu bug report describing the same regression. Post #23 mentions one user having success with ‘i8042.kbdreset=1’ boot parameter, but YMMV.

Yes. Looks like the Ubuntu user also discovered from another posting that his Asus Rog G752VS laptop uses an Elantech touchpad.
Command to find out which touchpad you use.

dmesg | grep pnp


This replaces my recommendation with yours by adding “i8042.kbdreset=1” to:


Then run: grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg and reboot.
