@Abdulhalim Rafeik, how do you unload & reload i2c_hid? If i do that

modprobe -r i2c_hid
modprobe i2c_hid

Then the touchpad still is jumpy and right click is not working.

I'm running kernel 4.20.6 and Ubuntu 18.10. I've also got the FX503VD.

  ELAN1200 touchpad jumps around and disconnects

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  This is on an ASUS GL503VD laptop and would probably affect other ASUS
  laptops equipped with the ELAN1200 touchpad.

  I am on Kernel 4.17.2 because older kernels did not enable the
  touchpad at all(It was just unrecognized or i2c-hid stopped the
  computer from booting)

  The touchpad works but it has erratic behaviour and disconnects
  randomly. After it disconnects the only way to bring it back is to
  `modprobe -r hid-multitouch && modprobe hid-multitouch`

  Libinput and synaptics can handle the touchpad though I found
  synaptics to be more stable.

  dmesg gets spammed with this whenever I move the touchpad:
  [timestamp] i2c_hid i2c-ELAN1200:00: i2c_hid_get_input: incomplete report 

  I tried to compile: https://github.com/mishurov/linux_elan1200_touchpad
  Because from what I understand the "jumpy/disconnect" problem is associated 
to the incomplete reports and Mishurov managed to mitigate those. Unfortunately 
some symbols were deprecated in kernel 4.17.2 and it did not compile for my 

  While I can use my touchpad as is right now, and "restart" it with
  modprobe when needed, it would be nice to have it function bug-free.
  (Right after I typed this my touchpad disconnected and I needed to
  modprobe again, I am considering making a cronjob for that)

  Let me know if anything else is needed. Will wait for an apport collection to 
add log files.
