Laptop Touchpad works in Fedora, not in any other distro?
I have a Dell XPS M1530. The touchpad works in Windows Vista, the operating system it came with.
I almost immediately uninstalled this of course, replacing it with Linux Mint. The touchpad did not work. Whenever it was touched, the cursor would go crazy, jumping around various places, usually in the bottom left corner of the screen.
I uninstalled Linux Mint, and installed Ubuntu in it's place. The trackpad did the same thing in Mint, Ubuntu, Slackware... But for some reason it worked fine in Fedora.
(Adding i8042.nomux=1 to kernel instructions keeps it from jumping around in distros that it doesn't work, but this is not a fix. The touchpad is then really slow and any options added to it in Xorg.conf are ignored.)
Can anybody explain to me why my touchpad is not working? And why does it magically work in Fedora 10?
