Lenovo IdeaPad s205 Touchpad


I have a Lenovo IdeaPad s205 Netbook. I installed there xubuntu a long time ago.

It worked well. Today there were some updates (i think including a kernel update) and now the touchpad doesn't work. If i boot with another kernel (selecting in grub) the touchpad also doesn't work.

I don't know why. Is there a way to find the source of the problem?

Best regards


Sorry for the thread. I solved the problem.

I tried to install the kernel-source (package-name "kernel-source"), then i saw that "apt-get" had a corrput state, so i had to run "apt-get --configure -a".

After this command and a reboot it worked fine.

Sorry for the thread. i Searched one hour and i didn't found a solution.

Best regards
