Well, I found one way around it. I unplugged my usb mouse before booting, then my touchpad was recognized. Configured that and it works fine now. However, I would like to be able to have my usb mouse config there so I don't have to redo that config every time I want to use the usb mouse. Is this possible? To have the touchpad work all the time and have the USB mouse work as soon as I plug it in?
