I had this problem on the Zephyrus M GS501M, it suddenly disappeared. I'm not sure what fixed it but i suspect:

- Try going to the bios, disable and enable the trackpad again, save and retry. (do it even if it's already enable, it seems to fix a windows 10 bug with proprietary bios settings when using Rog Gaming Center).

- If it doesn't work, try installing the bios update via windows 10 if you have it in dual boot. For some reason this bios was only available on windows update and I could not download it from Asus website.

After doing this my trackpad start being detected and worked without any additionnal settings.

I have "acpi_osi=" in my kernel parameters otherwise I have hardware detection problems.
I use libinput 1.11.0-1 on arch linux, I haven't tested ubuntu yet.
