Elan1200:00 04f3:3022 touchpad not working in manjaro 20 xfce on my asus laptop

I booted from a Manjaro xfce live usb drive and my touchpad is not working on my Asus laptop. The touchpad is Elan1200:00 04f3:3022.

Please install evtest, then start it and see if the touchpad is recognized, if so, then select it, and see if it prints events when you move your finger on the touchpad.

Yes. It prints lots of events that look like this:

Event: time 1601918222.633128, type 1 (EV_KEY), code 330 (BTN_TOUCH), value 0
Event: time 1601918222.633128, type 1 (EV_KEY), code 325 (BTN_TOOL_FINGER), value 0
Event: time 1601918222.633128, type 4 (EV_MSC), code 5 (MSC_TIMESTAMP), value 750000

Please run evtest again, and see if you can see “Asus WMI …” or “Intel Virtual …”. Select them, and check if you see “SW_TABLET_MODE” in the text that’s printed after you selected them.

______ /dev/input/event14: Asus WMI hotkeys
is available. Not:
______ Intel Virtual …

After running event14 I see the line:
____ Event code 1 (SW_TABLET_MODE) state 1

That’s exactly what I expected. It’s a known bug, a patch has already been prepared (if I recall correctly), and awaiting merging. Fortunately, this is easily fixable. Check out this thread for possible solutions.

Thank you! It’s working now.
