View Full Version : [ubuntu] Touch Pad not working properly

November 26th, 2008, 04:00 PM
I have just installed 8.10 on my Dell D830 Laptop and all is working well except the touch pad. It does work but it is very slow to respond. I moved the speed adjustment up in the System --> preferences --> mouse settings and that has helped. If I have a mouse plugged in it work flawlessly. I have used openSuse and CentOS before on this box trying to decide which distro to use and the touch pad work as it should. Any help would be appreciated. ](*,)

I had similar problems running Intrepid on a Dell Latitude 110L.

This thread (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=365683) was very useful for checking that your settings aren't out of whack but what fixed it for me was, using synclient, setting GrabEventDevice to 0/false like this:

me@comp:~$ synclient GrabEventDevice=0
Hope this helps...
