My touchpad does not work in Linux Mint, which I recently installed. I can connect a mouse and it works fine. I have an Asus Zenbook Pro UX501 laptop.

I tried a bunch of things, but none of them worked. I checked in hardware >> mouse and touchpad, and the touchpad was turned on according to the settings. I tried pressing the F9 key on my keyboard which looks like a mouse with a line through it, but the exact same shape with the line appears on the screen which, means it is turned off, I assume. I also installed touchpad-indicator, but it won't run for some reason on my Linux.

Also, when I run dmesg | grep mouse, this is what I get:

[ 0.918702] mousedev: PS/2 mouse device common for all mice

I ran:

 cat /proc/bus/input/devices

and I got a block with the touchpad in it:

I: Bus=0003 Vendor=0457 Product=10cc Version=0111
