Fedora 28 can't detect touchpad.

My laptop model is Asus x505bp-br019. The default operating system was Endless OS. The touchpad were trouble-free. When I installed Fedora 28, it couldn't detect the touchpad. Here is the output of xinput:

xinput

I downloaded the original driver which is only available for Windows 10. According to it, here is the driver info:

Vendor:ASUS | Category:Touchpad | Module:ELAN/SA473I-12A4

I tried to solve by changing GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX line of /etc/default/grub and adding i8042.reset and i8042.kbdreset=1 kernel parameters. I checked other Elantech entries. The touchpad didn't work. Is there a neat solution for it?
