    12.04 Touchpad not detected for Dreambook

    Hi,

    I have a Dreambook from Pioneer computers, and sadly the touchpad is not detected at all. I've looked around, but I can't work out where to start with this. Could anyone give me ideas on how to work out which drivers I need, or what else I should be doing?

    Thanks!

    I downloaded the Windows driver for the touchpad and found

    Code:
    ; Localizable Strings
    Provider            = "Sentelic"
    DiskId1             = "Finger Sensing Pad Driver Installation Disk"
    AVC.DeviceDesc      = "Finger Sensing Pad"
    AVC.DriverDisplayName = "Finger Sensing Pad Driver"
    AVC.DriverDisplayVersion = "9.2.1.6"
    AVC.DriverReleaseDate = "12/16/2011"
    AVC.DriverCfg       = " "
    fspad.SvcDesc       = "Finger Sensing Pad Driver for Windows 2000/XP/Vista/Win7"
    fspadsvr.SvcDesc    = "Finger Sensing Control Service"
    A Google search for "finger sensing pad linux" turned up this project who make drivers, distributed in a deb file:

    I've downloaded the drivers recommended, from here. I installed them through the software centre (I think - clicked the 'intall' button and it seemed to go okay). But the touchpad still isn't working, and no touchpad option shows up in the settings under mouse and touchpad.

    I followed the instructions given on Samiux's blog, and have a working touchpad. Hurrah!
