    Dell E6520 Alps Touchpad problems after upgrade Ubuntu

    Hello,
    I tryed to switch to a new Ubuntu version, but my touchpad makes troubles. I use a Dell Latitude E6520 laptop with an Alps touchpad. Currently I'm on Ubuntu 11.10.

    grep -B 5 mouse /proc/bus/input/devices (under 11.10)
    Code:
    I: Bus=0011 Vendor=0002 Product=0005 Version=7326 
    N: Name="ImPS/2 ALPS  GlidePoint" 
    P: Phys=isa0060/serio1/input0 
    S:  Sysfs=/devices/platform/i8042/serio1/input/input13 
    U: Uniq= 
    H:  Handlers=mouse0 event13
    The touchpad works well with 11.10. Tapping and edge scrolling is going well.
    When I switch to 12.04, 12.10 or 13.04 the touchpad is a bit "jumpy". I can't exactly tap buttons with the cursor. The sensivity is too high.
    I tryed to modify the kernel or replace the touchpad setting, but without success

    grep -B 5 mouse /proc/bus/input/devices (under > 12.04)
    Code:
    I: Bus=0011 Vendor=0002 Product=0008 Version=7326 
    N: Name="AlpsPS/2 ALPS  DualPoint TouchPad" 
    P: Phys=isa0060/serio1/input0 
    S:  Sysfs=/devices/platform/i8042/serio1/input/input9 
    U: Uniq= 
    H:  Handlers=mouse1 event9
    How can I fix this? Is there any way Ubuntu > 12.04 will recognize my touchpad like 11.10 did?
    I tryed with following, but without success (Tapping was fixed, but edge scrolling wasn't possible anymore):
    Code:
    sudo modprobe -r psmouse 
    sudo modprobe psmouse proto=imps
    Also the psmouse-alps-dkms driver didnt work for me.
    Thanks!

    Ubuntu 13.10 also doesnt work for me. Canonical certified my hardware for using it with Ubuntu, but sadly there is no support to fix this problem

    I solved this same problem after experimenting with different distributions, finally I settled to Kubuntu 12.04 LTS (i.e. KDE flavour of ubuntu). Please, read the following thread, I think it will help you also.

    @RLDr: Thanks, but this didnt work for me. Kubuntu and Ubuntu are using the same kernel. I tryed already Fedora, Mint, Debian, OpenSuse, ... Kernel 3.0.0-12 (e.g. Ubuntu 11.10) is working for me on all distributions, all Kernels > 3.2 (e.g. (K)Ubuntu 12.04) arent working for me.

    Lucky you.
    Nothing changed for me, even with the newest kernel.

    Did you change anything in your settings or did it work out of the box?
