http://ubuntuforums.org – Finally got it working! Its beautiful I want to cry :) The 2nd Gen Series 9 13" X3C uses the Elantech Touchpad which has always been incorrectly reconized as a PS/2 Mouse, after a lot of reading I have finally managed to fix by doing the following: 1. Plug in a USB mouse. 2. Remove any /etc/modprobe.d/psmouse.conf, /etc/modprobe.d/psmouse.modprobe stuff you might have done. 3. Install the driver: Code: cd /usr/src/ sudo wget http://planet76.com/drivers/elantech/psmouse-elantech-v6.tar.bz2 sudo tar jxvf psmouse-elantech-v6.tar.bz2 sudo dkms add -m psmouse -v elantech (Hardware)
