Touchpad working properly on Asus E200HA


I have grumbled many times about problems with Linux on my Asus E200HA baby laptop.

Let's see, itemising:

1. CPU usage suddenly going through the roof, making UI inoperative.
2. SD-card interface not recognised.
3. No sound.
4. Touchpad not properly recognised and unconfigurable.


I read a report a few days ago, that the touchpad is fixed with the 4.10 kernel. Also, keyboard hot keys:

So, I compiled 4.10.1, and can confirm, yes, the touchpad is now recognised as a Synaptics touchpad by Xorg, and Flsynclient works.

I did report earlier that audio is fixed, however that might require an Alsa upgrade.

I have been running it for a few hours, stable so far. Cross the fingers that I can rule out number-1.
Then number-2 is the remaining big problem.
