I have an ASUS Zenbook UX433,on which ASUS decided to innovate by embedding a Numpad inside the touchpad (see picture 1).

Toggling between classic touchpad mode and numpad (also turns the touchpad LEDs on) can be done through the golden button in the top-right corner of the touchpad.

However, on my Manjaro arch Linux config, this behavior does not work by default and I can only use the touchpad, no numpad.

Has anyone been able to configure the numpad to work on Linux, or have any idea how this could be achieved?

EDIT1: I have had a look at the official Windows drivers for the UX433FA TouchPad, but was not able to make anything of it. I tried installing them on Linux using tools like NDISWrapper, but they do not detect the TouchPad/Numpad hardware, and my understanding of drivers is too limited.

  • No there is no way to make it works at the moment :/ Good laptop though – BADAOUI Mohamed Jan 20 at 17:51
  • Any updates on getting this to work? It is indeed a great laptop! – Samleo Mar 11 at 12:35
  • Well, I don't have any new information at the moment. There is only one other thread about it. It looks like we will have to wait for an official driver release. – Pierre Thalamy Mar 11 at 13:45
