Hi all, has anyone successfully enabled the ELAN touchpad on an Asus laptop like mine? I have a 17" Asus ROG too, and that touchpad doesn't work either. As an extra step I loaded the Asus kernel modules manually, but that didn't enable the touchpad.

I had some problems as well. Which model do you have? As far as I know many new ASUS laptops have their touchpad connected to the I2C-Bus which is not supported by the current FreeBSD kernels. Nevertheless it might work for you by using this patch.

Its the UX430U - basically the standard Zenbook US model. I believe you're right about the I2C-Bus. I run Linux on both machines and I know that module is being loaded.

Thanks for this link - I will give it a shot.
