I just bought an acer aspire 5100, and its now dualbooting with Kubuntu 6.10, 2.6.17 kernel. The touchpad seems dead, no response at all. It works fine in the Other OS. I've been looking around a few different forums, but I haven't found a working solution yet. The synaptics driver and library are installed. can anyone help?
Ok, now the touchpad works just great, but the thing is, I didn't do anything with it since i last posted. The only thing I to did was hook up an external hard drive and the install Gparted to work with it. I can't imagine how that would affect this. Im glad that the touchpad works now, but I wonder what changed after a week of no response from it.
