Touchpad doesn't work after upgrading to kernel 126.96.36.199
My laptop's touchpad doesn't work after I upgraded kernel from the original 2.4.31 (slackware 10.2) to 188.8.131.52, but my usb mouse works just fine in both kernels.
This is my xorg.conf:
One change I noticed after the upgrading is that only touchpad could work in virtual console under the 2.4 kernel; touchpad does not but usb mouse does work in virtual console in the 2.6 kernel.
:confused: :confused: :confused:
# Identifier and driver
Option "Buttons" "5"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Protocol" "Auto"
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
this works for me with touchpad and USB wireless mouse. they both infact work at the same time - when i remove the USB mouse, i can then use the synaptics touchpad
** note' this is all i have for mouse (not two sections)
Thank you -=Graz=-, but your solution seems does not work for me :(
try running #mouseconfig and select PS/2 as the mouse type.
then edit the xorg.conf to what i suggested and then reboot
** Also, my touchpad uses the synaptics driver (which loads during boot).. try typing
#dmesg | grep Synap*
i get the following output:
Synaptics Touchpad, model: 1, fw: 6.2, id: 0xa560b1, caps: 0xa04713/0x0
input: SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad as /class/input/input1
Thank you again -=Graz=- and I tried mouseconfig to use ps/2 for my touchpad, but it still did not work; so that, I thought there might be something wrong in the kernel. Then I reconfiguared, compiled and installed the kernel, the problem had been solved.
Oh cool! so you fixed it up with a re-compile?
