Touchpad on Asus g74sx


I have a Asus G74sx that I just installed Ubuntu 11.10 working but can't turn off the touchpad. Although it works, it is not seen by the operating system.

Any ideas?

First check your xserver log file /var/log/Xorg.0.log for any errors in determining touchpad, or at least any lines involving touchpad, then will be ideas.

Fix for touchpad

I had the same issue with my g74sx. This Touchpad indicator did the trick for me though. Leaving it here for reference. Also note, no errors were present in log.

Code:
 
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:atareao/atareao && apt-get update && apt-get install touchpad-indicator
