view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Greetings. I have recently purchased an advent tacto laptop that came with windows 8, i immediately deleted it and installed ubuntu, everything works fine, including the touchscreen, apart from the touchpad. im currently using a combination of the touchscreen and a USB mouse. Im unsure where to start to try and either diagnose or fix this problem, ive searched this forum and have been unable to find any other reference to this particular machine. Any advice/help would be much appreciated. (Hardware)
