    touchpad not working after login

    Hi,

    From one day to another I suddenly have the problem that when I boot my laptop (HP Pavilion 1120ED) the touchpad works but a soon as I log in it doesn't work anymore.

    I think it is something with the driver stops after I log in.

    Does anyone know how to fix this?

    I solved the problem, after lots of searching I found this command line that worked for me.

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

    Worked for me as well, I'm amazed actually. I have been booting into a BT4r1 USB boot a lot recently, and that effected my touchpad settings somehow. All worked well in the USB boot, and at the login screen, but past that, no touchpad at all. I boot a ThinkPad, so I was able to revert to the BS little red mouse input thing. Anyway, glad to have my touchpad back, thanks.

    Today I realise that I have this problem.

    Works for me too, thanks.

    I Googled "touch pad not working after login", I didn't even bother to specify Ubuntu and Google pointed me right to this thread. Hate to say this but if Ubuntu can not solve basic functionality bugs like this at version 11.04 I wonder if it will ever be ready for prime time.
