http://ubuntuforums.org – Is it possible to change the type of an already existing hardware device? I have a built-in touchpad on a Jaunty-based system which is currently listed as a mouse, and thus I can't prevent it from tapping! Here are the specifics (from HardInfo): Code: Name: ImExPS/2 Generic Explorer Mouse Type: Mouse (this needs to be changed) Bus: 0x11 Vendor: 2 Product: 0x6 Version: 0x0 Connected to isa0060/serio1/input0 How can I make this touchpad be recognized for what it actually is?
