sudo add-apt-repository ppa:hanipouspilot/focaltech-dkms sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install focaltech-dkms sudo modprobe -r psmouse sudo modprobe psmouse
Note: This works on all debian based distros (Ubuntu, elementary OS and so on)
X55 series uses elantech touchpad. Upgrade to kernel 4.0 or above it will solve the problem.
I have similar issues.so i tried different kernel and works only fine in 4.2.0-36-lowlatency . When i tried linux-image-4.4.0-31-generic the touch pad was not stable and had some random issues with clicks
