    1. Download the attached file to your computers desktop
    2. sudo apt-get install dkms build-essential
    3. cd ~/Desktop
    4. tar jxvf psmouse-3.2.0-24-generic-pae.tar.bz2
    5. sudo mv psmouse-3.2.0-24-generic-pae /usr/src
    6. cd /usr/src
    7. sudo chmod -R a+rx psmouse-3.2.0-24-generic-pae
    8. sudo dkms add -m psmouse -v 3.2.0-24-generic-pae
    9. sudo dkms build -m psmouse -v 3.2.0-24-generic-pae
    10. sudo dkms install -m psmouse -v 3.2.0-24-generic-pae
    11. sudo modprobe -r psmouse
    12. sudo modprobe psmouse
    13. sudo dkms status

    The output of the last command should look similar to this (with no errors):
    "psmouse, 3.2.0-24-generic-pae, 3.2.0-24-generic-pae, i686: installed"

    No need to restart the computer as the driver is now loaded and the mouse should be working, including the hardware right button.
    This worked for me right after I installed it but after a reeboot, my touchpad no longer worked at all. Using an HP dm4-1060us Ubuntu 12.04.1
    Please help

    It should work...give it a go. If it doesn't work as expected and you're landed with no mouse, or whatever, then you can just remove the module as per the instructions in post #74.

    Code:
    sudo dkms status

    Is there a way to get this to work on 3.2.0-29?

    I can't promise anything, but try repeating the entire process using this attached file and the version number 3.2.0-29 in place of the older 3.2.0-24. All I have done is update the version numbers in the dkms.conf file. It may help.

    what would the remove code for this be in case anything goes wrong?

    Just the same as with the previous version but use 29 in place of the 24 in the previous version.

    YES! It works so far. I will reboot again to see if it works after that. Thanks for your help.
