Hp ELAN Touchpad not working after install

It was working fine from livecd kde . I searched it has something to do with i2c driver cant figure out. I have installed other gesture libinput packages and xf86-input-synaptics none detect.

hp pavilion 15-EC1512AX

sudo dmesg|grep ELAN
[ 2.550885] i2c_hid_acpi i2c-ELAN0718:00: hid_descr_cmd failed
[ 2.550890] i2c_hid_acpi i2c-ELAN0718:00: Failed to fetch the HID Descriptor

Alredy tried

i8042.kbdreset=1 kernel param

  • /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

  • Insert blacklist elan_i2c

  • /etc/modprobe.d/elan.conf

  • "elantech_smbus=0 synaptics_intertouch=0"

sudo modprobe i2c_hid

libkmod: kmod_config_parse: /etc/modprobe.d/elan.conf line 1: ignoring bad line starting with 'elantech_smbus=0'

libkmod: kmod_config_parse: /etc/modprobe.d/elan.conf line 2: ignoring bad line starting with 'synaptics_intertouch=0'

Kernel 5.15 garuda and 5.13 Manjaro same issue works only on livecd .
