I've been having issues getting my touchscreen to work after the update to Linux Kernel
5.3.0-46-generic. I am presently running Elementary OS 5.1.3 "Hera". System is up to date; just checked AppCenter.
I checked "dmesg" and I found this output:
[ 5.487202] hid-generic 0018:04F3:299E.0004: item 0 1 0 8 parsing failed [ 5.487250] hid-generic: probe of 0018:04F3:299E.0004 failed with error -22 [ 5.487852] i2c_hid i2c-ELAN9004:00: i2c_hid_get_input: IRQ triggered but there's no data [ 5.494961] hid-multitouch 0018:04F3:299E.0004: report is too long [ 5.494991] hid-multitouch 0018:04F3:299E.0004: item 0 1 0 8 parsing failed [ 5.495033] hid-multitouch: probe of 0018:04F3:299E.0004 failed with error -22
I did find a similar issue reported on Manjaro Forums and saw it is fixed as of Linux Kernel 5.4. I'd like help either upgrading my kernel to a newer version without using a PPA, or at least resolving this issue while staying on the kernel I am on. I'm afraid to upgrade the kernel as I do not want to cause issues with updates.
