I have a asus F5, the touchpad is not working correctly on a recently 13.04 install. It was working on version 12.04. I enter the following command in terminal sudo modprobe -r psmouse && sudo modprobe psmouse proto=imps and touchpad works. The problem is when I reboot I have to open terminal and enter the command again, this is not very practical.
I have a Samsung NP305v5a-a05us on which I've installed Ubuntu 11.10. It works well except for one nagging issue: the touchpad response is terrible. In order to even move the mouse it requires me to put a lot of skin on the surface of my pad and the touchpad is unaffected by the settings that I change in the settings manager.
Thought I would get back into the swing of Linux things as of late and recently updated to 12.04. I was hit with two major errors. First, touchpad isn't working. It didn't work with 11.** either and I had to fix it using dconf. I checked dconf and it is indeed checked on. I have also tried to
modprobe -r psmouse
modprobe psmouse proto=imps
and it errors.
Until yesterday, my touchpad worked correctly, but after an update, it didn't work anymore. `xinput list` doesn't even list it. I'm using Ubuntu 13.10 with kernel 3.11.0-15 on a HP Chromebook 14 (not the pavillon, the model with the haswell cpu). I don't know exactly what I could do to reenable it. I searched for a shortcut that would enable/disable it, but I didn't find anything.
After installing psmouse-alps-dst-0.4 driver for my Dell 5720 touchpad from here : http://www.dahetral.com/public-download I decided to uninstall it.
I removed /usr/src/psmouse-alps-dst-0.4 folder, removed psmouse from dkms and did sudo rmmod psmouse followed by modprobe psmouse proto=imps, driver works as default one but after reboot alps one is still here.
