    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

    this method works like a charm.. thumbs up

    Re: Ubuntu 12.04 lts Hp touchpad right click problem

    Thank you very much, after two years my HP ProBook 4320 touchpad works with gesture and right click both!


    I applied the patch version psmouse-3.2.0-30-generic-pae to the kernel 3.2.0-32-generic-pae (Ubuntu12.04) . All seems to be ok.


    I have noticed that on Ubuntu 12.10 this touchpad problem it is already solved.

    I was pleased to discover this too. 12.10 works very nicely on my Mini

    I don't suppose a 64-bit version of this patch is available, or you could tell me how to make it compatible?
    I've never looked at the source for the 64bit kernel. It may be just the same, it may be very different, I've honestly no idea, sorry.

    Also the patch is for a HP Mini, not a DV5, but it may work on that model.

    You may be interested to know the clickpad works perfectly with Ubuntu 12.10 with no need for a patch.
