Hi

What kind of touchpad do you have?

Open a terminal and type


xinput --list

Post back the results. Maybe someone will know how to fix it.

Kind regards

Hi

Enter this at the terminal. It will enable your touchpad if it is disabled.


gconftool-2 --set --type boolean /desktop/gnome/peripherals/touchpad/touchpad_enabled true

Kind regards

Lovely Fix. Many thanks. I wonder if there is a way to know what caused the problem. Some error report maybe?

Thanks ... that did the trick for me. I used the Configuration Editor to see if it was already checked. It wasn't.
