    Hi! I've you recently installed Ubuntu, then try upgrading your repositories information and then updating your system. Perhaps is a misconfiguration that gets solved updating the system.
    Bad command. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaaay!!!.

    Ok, I'm not quite sure what you mean so I'll ask - it connects via a PS/2 port - that I can understand, but is this more than just a touch pad - are there any buttons, etc., on it? You'll probably need to take the manufacturer name and the model and do a search in one of the big search engines similar to this:

    ubuntu manufacturer model driver

    I'm just guessing it's probably going to need a driver to work.

    Hi, to have a better overview of your problem and determine the possible solutions, could you be so kind and answer a couple of questions?

    1. Is it a fresh Ubuntu install?
    2. What version of the kernel are you using?
    3. Did the Touchpad worked and suddenly stopped working?


    Also try this:

    Open the gconf-editor by pressing the keyboard combination: alt+f2
    then, type gconf-editor, click run
    navigate to:

    desktop > gnome >> peripherals >> touchpad

    touchpad-enabled should be clicked, if not clicked then click on it

    If it's clicked and still not working then post back the answer to the questions above.

    Cheers

    Re: synaptics PS/2 port touchpad not working with ubuntu 10.04

    hello,

    It's a 2.6.32-32 version.
    I guess it was from the start,the touchpad not worked.
    I've installed it with the USB mouse connected....
    My notebook is a SONY VAIO VPCYA1V9E

    In windows 7 is there no problem.
    searching in device manager give's me the information mentioned:synaptics PS/2 port touchpad.

    thx

    Whoops. Misread.

    Still, if it is one of the Alps touchpads, a lot of us are having the same problem. I can't turn off tap-to-click, which makes typing and cursor movement extremely erratic.

    This is a bug that apparently has been around for a while, found a thread here
    a little outdated but it is worth to try it,

    The post #2 gives a solution, the models tested are some Vaio VPC...

    If you have a doubt how to do it, post back so we can assist you.

    Cheers

    Hi,

    THX for the help

    here's the solution

    run in terminal:sudo gedit/etc/default/grub

    change:

    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="i8042.reset i8042.nomux i8042.nopnp i8042.noloop"

    save

    run:sudo update-grub

    reboot

    This works on my Sony VAIO VPCYA1V9E
