    Re: HP Mini 210 touchpad right click not working

    I installed the patch and my mouse stopped working altogether. I have an Envy 15, not a Mini 210, but it uses the Synaptics Clickpad so I'd think it wouldn't make a difference. Anyone have similar results or know why this wouldn't work for me?

    Unhappy Re: HP Mini 210 touchpad right click not working

    Hi All,

    I am having some problems with the mouse patch installation. I loaded Ubuntu onto my HP 210 yesterday and have resolved most issues. I tried setting up the patch as described but think I have done something wrong.

    I downloaded the patch and put it into my home folder (I found that I was only able to place things in the named user folder under the home folder. I then opened the terminal and entered the first line of the code. The terminal asked if I wanted to download patches so I said "yes". After the download the second line of code gave an error message <bash: syntax error near unexpected token `newline'>.

    I have not been able to proceed any further with this remedy. I would appreciate some help on this one. Please explain any instructions at a very detailed level.

    I also noted someone said that they removed the PS2 code that they had previously entered. How is this done?

    Thanks

    Open the terminal on your Mini 210 and

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install build-essential patch linux-source
    The kernel source will be a tarball that is installed in /usr/src. Extract it to your home directory like so:

    Code:
    tar -xjvf /usr/src/linux-source <tab>
    Note that pressing tab will autocomplete to the version you downloaded. Once extracted, change to the source directory and untar the patch attachment you downloaded at the beginning:

    Code:
    cd linux-source <tab>
    tar -xzvf ../clickpad.tar.gz
    Now we'll patch the driver files, copy the Makefile to the right place, and compile and install the new driver:

    Code:
    patch -p1 <clickpad_patch
    cp Makefile drivers/input/mouse/
    cd drivers/input/mouse
    make
    sudo make install
    Reboot your machine, and you'll find the touchpad works like it should. Note that this patch is based on Takashi Iwai's fine work here: http://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/67335/

    Probably there is a better way, but what I did is reinstalling the kernel.

    sudo apt-get remove linux-image-2.6.32-19-generic
    sudo apt-get install linux-image-2.6.32-19-generic

    Re: HP Mini 210 touchpad right click not working

    Lucid uses the udev architecture for input device control, apparently :-S

    I found this on the Debian Wiki:

    http://wiki.debian.org/SynapticsTouchpad

    This goes in /etc/udev/rules.d/99-synaptics.rules


    ACTION!="add|change", GOTO="my_synaptics_end"
    KERNEL!="event*", GOTO="my_synaptics_end"
    ENV{ID_INPUT_TOUCHPAD}!="1", GOTO="my_synaptics_end"

    ENV{x11_driver}="synaptics"

    ATTR{device/name}=="*SynPS/2*", \
    ENV{x11_options.SHMConfig}="On", \
    ENV{x11_options.EmulateTwoFingerMinZ}="40", \
    ENV{x11_options.VertTwoFingerScroll}="1", \
    ENV{x11_options.HorizTwoFingerScroll}="1", \
    ENV{x11_options.TapButton1}="1", \
    ENV{x11_options.TapButton2}="2", \
    ENV{x11_options.TapButton3}="3"

    LABEL="my_synaptics_end"
    You have to delete the psmouse.modprobe file from /etc/modprobe.d/ if you used the psmouse kludge before, then create the 99-synaptics.rules file and fill in the above text and reboot. For me it got left and right mouse clicks working and also right hand edge scrolling, nice!

    There is a whole section in the Ubuntu docs about setting this up here:

    http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/...naptics.4.html

    Maybe we can have a play around and improve on the Debian file?
