    - when you rest your thumb on a button (not clicking), the mousepad is not usable. In Windows this does work.
    - When you click left and have your finger on the right side of the pad, it clicks right. Perhaps make a patch which only detects the button position if area is within the AreaBottomEdge ?
    I second those problems.
    It seems to me that the driver is programmed to rightclick whenever it detects a click and a finger on the whole of the right side of the touchpad.
    I'm currently using a lenovo z380 with a synaptics touchpad that has no physical buttons except for the whole of the touchpad itself(similer to the macbook but poorer quality)
    Basically what i feel that this driver needs is to seperate not only on the X Axis but also on the Y. Meaning that any click above a certain line(the virtual button line) will count as a left click.
    Also while writing this comment now I noticed that there's a very fine line of a middle button click that is for some reason assigned to pasting.
    I would try to work on the source myself but I've only just started the dabble in linux and have absolutely no idea how as of this moment =]
    I'd love to help in any other way I can though.

    There are loads of possibilities for tweaks and changes but for me the right click is usable now. Anyone who is interested in modifying the source is free to do so as all relevant files are included in the .tar.bz2 file.

    It might be worth noting that the right click works for me without needing a patch on a bang up-to-date Debian Sid system. Hopefully there will be no need to make any changes with upcoming kernel releases.

    Re: Ubuntu 12.04 lts Hp touchpad right click problem

    This post is to draw everything into once place. Partly to help people looking for this patch and partly so I can keep better track myself lol.

    I have attached all the patch files that I have done for Ubuntu 12.04 to this post and will remove from elsewhere a link here (I think I can do that). All these patches are the same, the only difference is the version number, so that it doesn't cause any problems when installing against a different kernel version.

    Once the patch is installed it can be left alone, no need to do anything when you get a kernel installed as it is updated automatically.

    I have been using this patch myself and have had no issues with it. Many people have contacted me or posted on this thread confirming it works on other laptops but it was put together specifically for the HP Mini 210...you may find success on other laptops too

    When using the commands below replace <VERSION> with the relevant version number you are trying to installed, for example for version 3.2.0-24, use psmouse-3.2.0-24-generic-pae

    Code:
    To install the patch:
    
    1. Download the attached file to your computers desktop
    2. sudo apt-get install dkms build-essential
    3. cd ~/Desktop
    4. tar jxvf psmouse-<VERSION>-generic-pae.tar.bz2
    5. sudo mv psmouse-<VERSION>-generic-pae /usr/src
    6. cd /usr/src
    7. sudo chmod -R a+rx psmouse-<VERSION>-generic-pae
    8. sudo dkms add -m psmouse -v <VERSION>-generic-pae
    9. sudo dkms build -m psmouse -v <VERSION>-generic-pae
    10. sudo dkms install -m psmouse -v <VERSION>-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):
    Code:
    "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.

    Code:
    To uninstall the patch:
    
    1. sudo dkms uninstall -m psmouse -v <VERSION>-generic-pae
    2. sudo dkms remove -m psmouse -v <VERSION>-generic-pae --all
