can you try Fn + F7 to check if this would work

i don't have a switch but i did find in another acer that the touchpad doesn't work (or freezes a lot) with linux if in the BIOS the "advanced" option is selected for the touchpad. If there is that option, try setting it to "basic" and see what happens (basic still allows for click emulation, vertical and horizontal scolling etc) If it's still not working from the get go, try the FN +F7 once more.
OK. Left click on start menu. Left click system center control panel. Go to hardware section. Click on mouse & touchpad. Make sure touchpad is turned on or if any error messages are displayed. Jack E/NJ
i sent you mail yesterday ref. kernel version. (top of the page on the right, there's a mail icon)
just a long shot - when you have live booted, does FN + F7 key combination spring it into life? Also, if you press the windiws key, type touchpad, enter on that option, then go to the enable/disable touchpad option, is "disable touchpad when mouse is plugged in" ticked? if so, untick and apply.Well now that I checked this option, I can see it says no touchpad found. Probably the computer doesn't recognize the touchpad and only thinks is a keyboard
@maalfarob When I tried Mint, I had intermittent touchpad problems. I don't have a Switch. I don't have any touchpad problems with latest Ubuntu 17.10.1.https://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktophttps://rufus.akeo.ie/https://community.acer.com/en/discussion/538305/cant-access-uefi-after-installing-linux-dual-boot/p1I'm out of suggestions. Good luck.
