Satellite Touchpad Setup


Mail Me

I just installed Mandrake 9.0 on my Satellite Laptop and was wondering if I could have the touchpad and
the usb mouse working like it does int XP.
Can someone give me instructions on how to set this
up or where I can get information on how to set it
up.

I have Red Hat 8.0 on a Satellite Laptop and both the USB and touchpad work fine. This is a Mandrake issue. Contact Mandrake for info.

Touchpad & Mouse in Redhat 8.0

Hi,

May I know how you do that (set so that laptop touchpad and mouse works together in RedHat 8.0) ?

I just install Redhat 8.0 in my Fujitsu laptop. At first, it works fine with my touchpad. Then when I plug in the mouse and Kudzu recognize it, the mouse works fine, but the touchpad wouldn't work anymore.

Thanks in advance.

Um I don't recall doing anything. They both work for me by default. Sorry.

But in my case, if I disconnect the mouse, the touchpad still doesn't work either.
