    Touchpad not recognized [Gnome]

    Hello,

    I bought a new Vaio VPCF laptop and installed Ubuntu 10.04.
    I had many problems (video, sound,etc) but managed to follow some guides here and get everything working

    now i just have one problem. My touchpad doesnt work.
    i found many people with similar problem, but none of the fixes worked for me.

    It's not even beign recognized by the system
    heres my cat /proc/bus/input/devices output (omitting certain parts):

    Code:
    ...
    
    I: Bus=0017 Vendor=0001 Product=0001 Version=0100
    N: Name="Macintosh mouse button emulation"
    P: Phys=
    S: Sysfs=/devices/virtual/input/input2
    U: Uniq=
    H: Handlers=mouse0 event2 
    B: EV=7
    B: KEY=70000 0 0 0 0
    B: REL=3
    
    I: Bus=0003 Vendor=093a Product=2510 Version=0111
    N: Name="PIXART USB OPTICAL MOUSE"
    P: Phys=usb-0000:00:1d.0-1.2/input0
    S: Sysfs=/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.0/usb2/2-1/2-1.2/2-1.2:1.0/input/input4
    U: Uniq=
    H: Handlers=mouse1 event4 
    B: EV=17
    B: KEY=70000 0 0 0 0
    B: REL=103
    B: MSC=10
    my xorg.conf (partial)

    Code:
    Section "InputDevice"
        # generated from default
        Identifier     "Mouse0"
        Driver         "mouse"
        Option         "Protocol" "auto"
        Option         "Device" "/dev/psaux"
        Option         "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
        Option         "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
    EndSection
    as you can see, no Synaptics or Alps reference

    Code:
    $ xinput list
    ⎡ Virtual core pointer                        id=2    [master pointer  (3)]
    ⎜   ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer                  id=4    [slave  pointer  (2)]
    ⎜   ↳ PIXART USB OPTICAL MOUSE                    id=10    [slave  pointer  (2)]
    ⎜   ↳ Macintosh mouse button emulation            id=12    [slave  pointer  (2)]
    ⎣ Virtual core keyboard                       id=3    [master keyboard (2)]
        ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard                 id=5    [slave  keyboard (3)]
        ↳ Sony Vaio Keys                              id=6    [slave  keyboard (3)]

        ↳ Power Button                                id=8    [slave  keyboard (3)]

        ↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard                id=11    [slave  keyboard (3)]
    and finally, not sure if this helps, but

    cat Xorg.0.log | grep -i mouse

    Re: Touchpad not recognized [Gnome]

    by the way, i have tried this https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...82/comments/33

    and i get the following error, which is very odd, considering the sound

    Code:
    WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/sound, it will be ignored in a future release.

    Re: Touchpad not recognized [Gnome]

    I have the exact same issue on my Sony Vaio VCPF127FX.

    I think the touchpad is being incorrectly identified as the devices "Virtual core XTEST pointer" and "Macintosh mouse button emulation".

    It seems like xorg.conf needs some custom entries, or maybe some other tweak to help Lucid correctly autodetect the hardware.

    Unfortunately my linux-fu is weak and I don't know where to go from here.

    Can anyone help??

    same problem on Toshiba Satellite C655. Any solution yet? I'd be satisfied with even the ability to delay the touchpad sensitity, but the solution in another thread to install mouseemu does not work because the system recognizes the touchpad as a PS2 mouse (not a single-button mouse).

    This solution is available on this thread.

    Tested working on Sony Vaio Y Series with RHEL Server 6.3
