Simply The Worst: Elantech Trackpad


What a godawful pointing device. Around a quarter of the time, it’s laggy and unresponsive. The rest of the time, it’s just insanely lackluster.

Let’s not forget the badly-translated drivers.

Why can’t these OEM trackpad makers just make hardware that works with the built-in Precision Trackpad support in Windows? At the very least I won’t have to run “Property of touch-Pad” anymore.

Ugh. The worst.

To make matters worse, apparently Elantech is like Broadcom and they fsking hate Linux, so a big middle finger to trying to make any lappy with this turdburglar trackpad work with Linux.

    I used to think the trackpad on my Asus T300 Chi was okay enough to use day to day, but then I decided I couldn't take it anymore and got me a wireless mouse.
