UPD: I was probably wrong in claiming that this is a FocalTech touchpad.
All of their touchpads are PS/2 (and allegedly fully supported starting
with kernel 4.1), while my touchpad is i2c.

FTE pnpid stands for Frontline, according to
http://www.uefi.org/sites/default/files/resources/PNPID_List.pdf, while
Focaltech is FTS. However, Frontline support says they do not produce
touchpads and never did.

In the end the only label the touchpad currently has is "asus touchpad".


** Description changed:

  Following the bug reporting documentation here:
  
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingTouchpadDetection#In_case_Touchpad_features_like_scrolling.2C_tapping.2C_etc._do_not_work_at_all.
  
- The Focaltech touchpad on Asus K501UW laptop is detected as a mouse, so
- I can't access touchpad features such as two-finger scrolling or use
- two-finger tap as right mouse button. The touchpad is recognized in
- xinput-list as "FTE1001:00 0B05:0101".

  The bug appears in Ubuntu Mate 16.04.1 x64 and Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon
  x64, both with kernel 4.4.0-31. I've also tried Linux Mint 17.3 x64 with
  kernel 3.19, and there the touchpad does not work at all (does not
  function even as a mouse).
  
  The bug is resemblant of #1372609.
