My touchpad doesn't work in FC9

Posted 04-09-2009 at 01:41 AM by mcvasant

I've installed Fedora 9 on my Acer Aspire 5570 laptop.
My synaptics touchpad doesn't work in it. I mean, the mouse pointer moves when I move my finger on the pad but it doesn't click when I tap on it.
What should I do to make it work?

I've installed Fedora 6 (kernel 2.6.18-1.2798.fc6) on my Acer Aspire 5570 laptop.
It's got an Acer Orbicam webcam on it.I am trying to build a device driver for it as it does not work on its own in Linux.

I've first tried to build a simple "hello world" module as a driver.
