Asus Elan touchpad not working

#1

Hi folks, this topic has popped up before, but not for a while - any news on a driver for the i2c Elan touchpad?

Anyone successfully running TrueOS on Zenbook?

I’ve tried this for example:
How to install Asus UX3410U Trackpad

And there’s this, but it’s from 2017:

trueos, the desktop, is dead.

Those entries are concerning FreeBSD 12. Project Trident https://project-trident.org/ is using FreeBSD 13-CURRENT.

Thanks Rod, I test all of them periodically, including FreeBSD, TrueOS and Trident. The touchpad is still thwarting me even in the newest Trident.

I was hoping to find out if it’s currently a dead issue (i.e., no support for this device) or if there’s a workaround (i.e., kernel modules or drivers not included in the stock install that I can add).

There are a few extra Asus modules included in /boot/kernel/ but loading them manually didn’t enable the trackpad.

if FreeBSD is having issue, Trident/trueos will have issues :frowning:
