I think one problem may be that the touchpad maker being used is different between our notebooks and/or maybe I have the same touchpad but it's being treated different due to my different BIOS version? How can we identify if our touchpads are exactly the same ones or different?

Also you can see HERE that this guy is doing a lot of work on the touchpad driver.

Hans de Goede - Nov. 22, 2017, 11:57 a.m.
According to the Win8 Precision Touchpad spec, inside the HID_UP_BUTTON
usage-page usage 1 is for a clickpad getting clicked, 2 for an external
left button and 3 for an external right button. Since Linux uses
BTN_LEFT for a clickpad being clicked we end up mapping both usage 1
and 2 to BTN_LEFT and if a single report contains both then we ended
up always reporting the value of both in a single SYN, e.g. :
BTN_LEFT 1, BTN_LEFT 0, SYN. This happens for example with Hantick
HTT5288 i2c mt touchpads.

This commit fixes this by not immediately reporting left button when we
parse the report, but instead storing or-ing together the values and
reporting the result from mt_sync_frame() when we've a complete frame.

Changes in v2:
-Rewrite of v1 of "HID: multitouch: Fix BTN_LEFT 0-1-0-1 events on Novatek
mt touchpad" to kill two birds with one stone

Changes in v3:
-Delay reporting for all buttons not just for BTN_LEFT

Changes in v4:
-Back to combining only the value for BTN_LEFT, the other issues are fixed
with the new "HID: multitouch: Only look at non touch fields in first
packet of a frame" patch

Yeah, Hans de Goede is very kind. I mailed him, he replied but his patches don't solve the problem at all.

Latest drm-intel-next 4.15 hasn't the touchpad working at all. Not clicks nor movements.

I've been using Manjaro 17.06 XFCE w/updated kernel 4.14.3-1. After weeks of use and dozens of sleep/wake and power on/off cycles my touchpad has not failed (yet!). It doesn't mean the problem is 100% fixed but at least it seems to be happening less often. So far... it seems that way. Time will tell. Again, my BIOS is "Jumper EZbook/P313R, BIOS JUMPER10x.P8.WP313R.NHNAUHN02 08/07/2017"
Install instructions are above in this thread and also on the TT forum here: https://techtablets.com/forum/topic/...v4/#post-75176

Thanks, I'll try the ubuntu mainline 4.14.3. But I don't think it is going to work.

Btw... I don't want Manjero.

I'm starting to wonder if the 09/30 BIOS version has problems that the 08/07 BIOS does not.
See if you can contact Jumper and find out if it's possible to reflash the BIOS.
I cannot think of anything else that could be causing such difference in functioning...
oh... maybe it could be a difference in touchpad versions or a difference in the firmware files shipped with Arch/Manjaro and Ubuntu.
How can we display the firmware files in use?

if I run "cat /proc/bus/input/devices" I see this. Is it the same on yours?...

4.14.3 worked for one guy on the TT forum who said 4.15 did not:

FYI, anyone hitting a problem of no touch-pad mouse clicks working on Ubuntu (and perhaps other distro's) there is a patch for it until kernel 4.16 comes out: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...44/comments/81

Hi everyone, I tried to use isorespin. I've use Linux for years but I'm not great with the terminal. When I go to get the packages (sudo apt -y install*bc curl losetup ip isoinfo mkdosfs mksquashfs rsync*
* * * * sudo apt -y install unsquashfs unzip wget xargs xorriso) the terminal can't find them, even when I update the repository. Any help would be great

Hi all. Late post, for future reference:
I have same laptop and same problem. After lots of work, indeed grub was the cause.
But I went another way to solve the problem.
systemd boot loader works perfectly. I found that Arch and old versions of Manjaro use systemd.
So I've downloaded the image of the last version of manjaro that used systemd (17.0). The boot and installation did run smoothly =)
After installed, I've update to latest version of Manjaro (but keeping systemd boot loader, reject anything grub-related).
By the way, Manjaro w xfce in this laptop runs nice and sweet

More details here
