Improved touchpad drivers for Asus U/UL-series models in Linux

Blogging this email from the mailing list (edited):
Re: [Asus-ul30] No Touchpad tab in mouse preferences
After building a kernel with Florian's patches to enable the elantech driver:
the touchpad tab appears in the mouse preferences.

Running ubuntu 10.04 amd64, kernel 2.6.34-rc4 (from Linus's git). Touchpad much better, not perfect, but there are far fewer spurious taps.


  1. Thanks for your great blog, helped a lot to tune lucid on my ul30a!
