    Re: Asus K52 / Asus A52

    i still seem to be having problems with the 'palm detection'
    i running kubuntu on the k52f and the touchpad is still hyper sensitive.

    Anyone with any guides to settings or something i've missed?
    cheers

    In system settings > mouse you can set the sensibility of the touchpad. About palm detection, you can use synclient to set the touchpad parameters, and gsettings to make them load on every reboot. Create a text file called "touchpad-settings.sh" in your user folder, paste inside the following three lines and save it:

    synclient PalmDetect=1
    synclient PalmMinWidth=5
    synclient PalmMinZ=150


    Then paste in a terminal the following:

    chmod +x touchpad-settings.sh
    gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.peripherals.input-devices hotplug-command /home/`whoami`/touchpad-settings

    Actually, before i do give it a go, i have a question:
    i notice in your instructions that i'm essentially going to use the 'gnome.settings-daemon'. I'm rather inexperienced in terms of linux (as you may have guessed...) and so considering i'm using kde/kubuntu, do these instructions to use gnome.settings still apply?
    Many thanks for the continued help.

    I think so, maybe someone can confirm it. Anyway, you can try the three synclient commands in a terminal, if it works then follow the rest of the process. It's very easy to undo in case it doesn't work.

    Hi raulmonda,

    Can you please try the following:

    Check if the v4l1compat.so file exists:
    Code:
    ls /usr/lib32/libv4l/v4l1compat.so
    If the file is missing, it is either that the needed package isn't installed or that it is located in a different place.

    These are the steps for 12.04, I think they're the same for 11.10:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libv4l-0:i386
    And then run with:

    Code:
    LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype

    Re: Asus K52 / Asus A52

    Just upgraded from 10.10 -> 11.04 -> 11.11 -> 12.04. When I hit 12.04 my touchpad quit working (Asus A52F).

    During upgrade I saved a copy of asus-touchpad.sh (/etc/acpi/asus-touchpad.sh) that I had originally modified to work with 10.10 as I was warned that it would be replaced. Since the touchpad wasn't working in 12.04 I reverted to the saved file but no luck.

    1) anyone have this issue? and if so what did you do to solve it.
    2) being in a hurry I didn't save a copy of the asus-touchpad.sh that was generated with the upgrade. Where can I get that file?

    Thanks for any help.
