    Question 10.04 Touchpad not working

    Hey,

    I run Windows 7 (Boo! Hiss!) on my netbook (HP Mini 311c), and I would like to dual boot with Ubuntu. Not the netbook remix, as I just don't like it.

    I created a bootable USB with unetbootin, out of the iso, and loaded up. It all loaded fine, except for the fact that the touchpad didn't work. I had to ctrl+alt+del to shut down. What could be causing this?

    Any help appreciated

    Can you try to play a little with the boot options? press any key at the first boot screen to change the options. I would especially suggest the acpi=off option.

    Hope this helps,
    Sander

    I re-made the Liveusb, and it decided to work. Thanks anyway.

    Just need to sort out my broadcom wireless card now...

    For the googlers, who still have trouble with synaptic touchpads, refer to
    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...7?comments=all

    Specifically to comment #9. It worked for me. (I installed gpointing-device-settings only. DIdn't need to install touchfreeze)

    Now I'm at peace!

    Worked fine for me! However, I installed both patches:
    gpointing-device-settings && touchfreeze.

    From https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...7?comments=all comment #35 worked for me

    You can write:
    Code:

    sudo modprobe -r psmouse
    sudo modprobe psmouse proto=imps

    To make permanet include the last line in /etc/modprobe.d/options
