View Full Version : [ubuntu] trackpad unresponsive to setting changes

August 16th, 2011, 12:34 AM

I am using Ubuntu 11.04 on an HP Pavilion dm3. I'm having issues with the trackpad, but they quite possibly could be related to that time I dropped my laptop too, however I was hoping I could find a solution to it using some command sequence or something. I've tried to disable my trackpad using the button just above my trackpad on the keypad, but this doesn't work. Also I tried to go to system settings-->Hardware-->Mouse and make adjustments to the mouse this way. However, anything that I try to change never seems to work. For example I tried to disable the trackpad when I am "typing" but it never seems to actually work. Does anyone have advice for a inexperienced Ubuntu user?
