Bug Description

The standard trackpad on the Asus N56VM comes with 2 buttons underneath the trackpad (like the MBP machines). The right click, however, is not recognised and acts as a left click. I asked about that (https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+question/204117) but it seems its a driver issue. xev for left and right click returns the same button.

just add

sudo modprobe -r psmouse sudo modprobe psmouse proto=imps sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/options and adding the line:
  options psmouse proto=imps Then close and reboot.

And that works

Nico Gevers, as per http://www.asus.com/Notebooks_Ultrabooks/N56VM/#support_Download_8 an update is available for your BIOS (214). If you update to this, does it change anything?

If not, could you please both specify what happened, and provide the output of the following terminal command:
sudo dmidecode -s bios-version && sudo dmidecode -s bios-release-date

Thank you for your understanding.

Hi

I'm not sure of my BIOS version (strictly speaking its not really BIOS
anymore, rather EFI). I've managed to mess up my EFI partition at some
stage so windows doesn't work anymore, so can't update bios settings.

Here's the output of dmidecode:
ase-date
N56VM.206
