    Touchpad freezees, is glitchy, and just plain sucks

    I'm having trouble with my touchpad freezing on me. While I was inspecting syslog it happened again leading me to find;

    Did you ever solve this?

    I started getting the same problem a few days ago on boot or resume of my Thinkpad T60p, and it only goes away after multiple reboot or suspend cycles. Very annoying!

    I'm suspecting a hardware issue, but FWIF I'm still on Ubuntu 10.10:

    Linux zion 2.6.35-30-generic #56-Ubuntu SMP Mon Jul 11 20:00:22 UTC 2011 i686 GNU/Linux

    Description: Ubuntu 10.10
    Codename: maverick

    Real Soon Now I'm upgrading to Natty...

    Seems to be the same on my Thinkpad Edge 11 running natty.

    Unhappy Re: Touchpad freezees, is glitchy, and just plain sucks

    No, I just chucked it up to being a defective touchpad. The thing is, it works fine in windows. So who knows

    This is an old problem, sadly still with us.

    Still not sure why/what/how it happens, but this ancient Itronix GoBook 250 (P3-700, 256 RAM) with Synaptics touchpad (id: 0x8f40b1) still shows it sporadically with Lucid 10.4.3 & E17. Even the touchscreen works, but the touchpad?

    There's a fix in the forum here but.....

    ....it relates to GRUB 1 and I have yet to translate it into something that works with the new Byzantine GRUB 2
    <sigh>

    Will post again if I concoct a fix that works in GRUB 2.

    Re: Touchpad freezees, is glitchy, and just plain sucks

    I seem to have struck lucky with the fix in This Link...

    Well, I managed a full game of Freecell in AIsleriot without problems, so it has certainly helped....

    Apologies for the multiple posts, but today the forum just freezes when I try to edit my previous posts.
