View Full Version : [ubuntu] Dell e6400 - Synaptics not loading

December 3rd, 2010, 04:50 AM
I have a dell e6400 laptop and I have problems with the touchpad driver. I can always use my touchpad, but the touchpad configuration utility loads only at the first boot after reinstalling xserver-xorg-input-synaptics. I would prefer to find another method except always reinstalling and rebooting.

All I want to do is to disable the touchpad tap-to-click. Preferably always, not just while typing.

I tried to do this via terminal.

~: syndaemon -d -i 5
Unable to find a synaptics device.

but... look at this:
~: cat /proc/bus/input/devices
I: Bus=0011 Vendor=0002 Product=0001 Version=6222
N: Name="PS/2 ALPS DualPoint TouchPad"
