    Re: Acer Aspire One 725 Elantech Touchpad not working

    Hello All.

    I had the same problem. I found Nabarlek's solution worked, but I can't scroll. Furthermore, the 'Mouse and Touchpad' settings: there is no longer a touchpad tab (see attached). Am I missing something?

    6. sudo modprobe -r psmouse

    Any further help'd be appreciated! Cheers.

    I also used this

    gksudo gedit options.conf
    In the text editor, type: options psmouse proto=imps

    sudo modprobe -r psmouse
    sudo modprobe psmouse)

    method, but it says this:

    sasukeskapa@sasukeskapa-AO725:/etc/modprobe.d$ sudo modprobe -r psmouse
    WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/options.comf, it will be ignored in a future release.
    sasukeskapa@sasukeskapa-AO725:/etc/modprobe.d$ sudo modprobe psmouse
    WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/options.comf, it will be ignored in a future release.
    sasukeskapa@sasukeskapa-AO725:/etc/modprobe.d$

    And after reboot it forgets everything and I have to do it again.
    Isn't there a permanent solution??? Also what could be the problem here???
    (I'm using a Kubuntu 12.04)
    (Also the scrolling doesn't working.)

    After a next reboot now it works
    Only the scrolling left to repair

    This is a way to create a file that fixed my Aspire One, so I'm sharing it:

    1. Open the Terminal
    2. cd /etc/modprobe.d/
    3. gksudo gedit options.conf
    4. In the text editor, type: options psmouse proto=imps
    5. Save the file and close it.
    6. sudo modprobe -r psmouse
    7. sudo modprobe psmouse
    This worked, but the notification are is goofy. You can fn-F7 to togle off and on, but the notification icon always shows the "off" graphic. So for those of you who tried the above and think it doesn't work after rebooting, try fn-F7 even if it keeps showing you the "turned off" graphic.

    Then COPY and PASE the following in the file. Save it, reboot and voila it works, multitouch and all!
    Code:
    Section "InputClass"
    	Identifier "ETPS/2 Elantech Touchpad"
    	MatchProduct "ETPS/2 Elantech Touchpad"
    	MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
    	Driver "synaptics"
    	Option "TapButton1" "1"
    	Option "TapButton2" "3"
    	Option "TapButton3" "2"
    	Option "VertTwoFingerScroll" "1"
    	Option "HorizTwoFingerScroll" "1"

    I'm having same issue

    NEC E6300 running ubuntu 12.04.. touchpad was working fine until the last update, I have run dconfig-editor, there's nothing in the box to click under 'org'. Followed instruction from Narbalek and nothing changed. No tab is showing for touchpad in systems.

    Not a coder, will follow instructions and keen to learn if anyone is willing to step me thru. Thanks.
