SubjectRe: [REGRESSION][v4.9.y][v4.10.y] Input: ALPS - set DualPoint flag for 74 03 28 devices
Masaki: Do you have any information about this touchpad you can share?  Is the third byte in EC relevant to the protocol and something we should look for when identifying devices in the driver?

Nick:

Unfortunately, I didn't print quite enough information in the two-finger message, but yeah, this kinda looks like a different protocol.

I've attached two tarballs this time:
1) alps_2a.tar.gz prints some additional info in the two-finger message which may help figure out what protocol your device is speaking:
sudo -s
dkms remove alps_ss5/1.0 --all
cd /usr/src/
rm -rf alps_ss5-1.0
tar -xvzf alps_2a.tar.gz
dkms install alps_ss5/1.0
modprobe -r psmouse ; modprobe psmouse
# Try two-finger scrolling, then run:
dmesg | grep 'two-finger'

2) alps_2b.tar.gz disables the driver unless the third byte in EC is 0x13 (the value my device uses) ... This driver should make your mouse work properly:
sudo -s
dkms remove alps_ss5/1.0 --all
cd /usr/src/
rm -rf alps_ss5-1.0
tar -xvzf alps_2b.tar.gz
dkms install alps_ss5/1.0
modprobe -r psmouse ; modprobe psmouse

Try those out and let's see where that gets us.

When you are done testing, you can revert back to whatever driver came with your kernel by running:
sudo -s
dkms remove alps_ss5/1.0 --all
modprobe -r psmouse ; modprobe psmouse
