    ALPS Touchpad not working in lenovo Y500


    I am using ubuntu 11.04. My laptop has ALPS Touchpad. But it is not working.

    I have run the command XINPUT --LIST and the result is

    hisham@LPT:~$ xinput --list
    ⎡ Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)]
    ⎜ ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer id=4 [slave pointer (2)]
    ⎜ ↳ Microsoft Microsoft Basic Optical Mouse v2.0 id=10 [slave pointer (2)]
    ⎣ Virtual core keyboard id=3 [master keyboard (2)]
    ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard id=5 [slave keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Power Button id=6 [slave keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Video Bus id=7 [slave keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Power Button id=8 [slave keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Sleep Button id=9 [slave keyboard (3)]
    ↳ USB 2.0 Camera id=11 [slave keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Ideapad extra buttons id=12 [slave keyboard (3)]
    ↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard id=13 [slave keyboard (3)]

    Can anyone please help in fixing this issue.

    Thanks in advance

    Yeah. It is a common issue across many different machines. There are no reliable drivers for the ALPS touchpad, and I keep trying to find a reliable way to disable the touchpad because it's worse when it's "working" and randomly moving the cursor and randomly selecting things than when it's not "working" at all.
