Kernel doesn't recognize my touchpad?
 
Hello forum.

I've been trying to get my touchpad to work, and suspect that maybe the kernel doesn't recognize it. Consider the output from running "cat /proc/bus/input/devices":

Code:

B: EV=17

As far as I can see, none of these entries match my touchpad. I have a logitech external mouse connected to the system just to be able to use a mouse, which matches that last entry. But shouldn't my touchpad be listed in this file?
