• Touchpad Elantech doesn't work


    Hi everyone, i have a problem with my touchpad: it doesn’t work at all. The touchpad works perfectly fine with windows 10 with the proper drivers installed, which MUST be from Elantech; drivers from synaptics won’t make it work, not even on windows 10.
    The problem is, how can i install such drivers with antergos?
    If it is of any help, i heard that the option: “i8042.nomux” solved the problem for some people, but i have no idea where to start with that. (I know nothing about programming)

    The Xinput gives me this:

    ⎡ Virtual core pointer                    	id=2	[master pointer  (3)]
    ⎜   ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer              	id=4	[slave  pointer  (2)]
    ⎜   ↳ PixArt HP X1200 USB Optical Mouse       	id=10	[slave  pointer  (2)]
    ⎣ Virtual core keyboard                   	id=3	[master keyboard (2)]

    On another post i found this:

    yaourt -S elantech-asustouchpad-dkms
    

    But my pc is an Acer, so this shows up (this is the last bit):

    elantech-asustouchpad-dkms 4.0.2-1  (2015-06-13 01:56)
    ( Unsupported package: Potentially dangerous ! )
