Asus tp300la touch

La receta para que funcione correctamente el touchpad y gestures con dos dedos.
Denominado FOCALTECH.... supongo que como sátira al nombre real.

Pensaba que ASUS ofrecía drivers para Linux en sus equipos, pero parece que en este caso no.

I finally came to this bug report:

It seems FocalTech touchpad needs a specific driver, and that work is in progress to integrate it into the mainline kernel.

currently, there seem to be a ppa to get a dkms driver for this touchpad :

After trying this, I can confirm the following procedure works :

add ppa

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:hanipouspilot/focaltech-dkms
update the packages database

sudo apt-get update
install the dkms driver

sudo apt-get install focaltech-dkms

The touchpad in now recognized. Two finger scrolling works, for example. Also, the zone where the buttons are won't make the cursor move.

Thanks for the community that retro-engeniered this (Asus just replied "no linux support nor technical information" to a request ! Very bad point to them (see the afore-mentioned bug report)).
