No trackpad in Ubuntu on 330 15IGM 81d1

2018-07-02, 19:38 PM

Bought a ideapad 330 15igm 81d1. loaded Unbuntu 18.04, and everything works great except for the elantech touchpad. It works fine in Windows of course.

 

I can find precious little in the way of documentation on this model's configuration, but the model of the touchpad appears to be an Elan061c

 

any help here guys? has anyone else managed to get this touchpad working?

Solved! See the solution

Hi, 

The touchpad of the Lenovo 330 series is not detected at boot due to its ACPI id not being present in the Ubuntu kernel driver. Windows Identifies it as a Elan HID over i2c device, the problem with detection on the 330 is a similar issue to the lenovo 320 laptop mentioned here: Lenovo Ideapad 320 - Touchpad doesn't work

 

Follow this guide if you want it working in Ubuntu 18.04:

Exactly what I needed!

 

Thanks! it is all working now!

 

For the record for others that may come here later... The model on this touchpad was an ELAN061C

Ubuntu 18.10 shipps with a newer kernel; Please try that with a live CD to see if your touchpad works, it just might  :)

 

Instructions for scanning ACPI IDs are halfway down this article and apply to linux in general.

If you are using Ubuntu, open terminal and enter

dmesg | grep -i elan

And it should give you some useful output

In terminal do

sudo apt install git build-essential
git clone https://github.com/jeremyb31/mouse-4.15.git
cd mouse-4.15
cp /usr/src/linux-headers-$(uname -r)/.config .
cp /usr/src/linux-headers-$(uname -r)/Module.symvers .
make -C /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/build M=$(pwd) modules
cd /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/input/mouse
sudo mv elan_i2c.ko elan_i2c.bak
cd ~/mouse-4.15
sudo cp elan_i2c.ko /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/input/mouse/
sudo depmod -a
make -C /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/build M=$(pwd) clean

Reboot, after a kernel update you will need to

cd mouse-4.15
cp /usr/src/linux-headers-$(uname -r)/.config .
cp /usr/src/linux-headers-$(uname -r)/Module.symvers .
make -C /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/build M=$(pwd) modules
cd /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/input/mouse
sudo mv elan_i2c.ko elan_i2c.bak
cd ~/mouse-4.15
sudo cp elan_i2c.ko /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/input/mouse/
sudo depmod -a
make -C /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/build M=$(pwd) clean

Fixed
sudo apt install git build-essential

You can copy text from terminal rather than post 3MB+ screenshots, highlight and use CTRL + SHIFT + c to copy from terminal

Are you using Ubuntu? I know build-essential is available in Ubuntu 18.04. My code will only work for 4.15 kernels
See if the following fixes the broken packages

sudo apt install -f
