I have been using Ubuntu 10.10 for about a week now, I have had many, many problems, but usually figure them out by searching through this forum, except this time:I have an HP touchsmart tx2 1025dx laptop. When I installed it, everything worked great, sound, mouse, and even the touchscreen. Right now I noticed that when I press the button on by laptop which toggles the touchpad, it works but after it would freeze the menus, so that they would not drop down, I have confirmed this after many restarts. Now the touchpad has stopped working completely. Although if use the toggle button, it will still freeze by menus. It also somehow stops my keyboard from typing things into programs, like firefox, but still somehow the control-alt delete still lets me restart it.

My question is how can I reset the mouse settings/preferances to how they were when I installed? I found something a while back that was xorgconfig??? but it has since been taken out of ubuntu 10.10 (I read this somewhere, please correct me if I'm wrong.) I hope this is enough information for someone to point me in the right direction.Recap:Laptop Touchpad not workingWhen I press the toggle Touchpad button, messes up the menusUsing HP Touchsmart Tx2 1025dx LaptopLooking for a way to reset/restore sound preferences/settings or enable touchpad/ps: I was able to come here because the touchscreen is still working I ended up doing this:rm -rf .gnome .gnome2 .gconf .gconfd .metacitywhich reset ALL of my settings back to when I installed it, without deleting my programs or files.I found this here: http://linuxfud.wordpress.com/2007/0...re-installing/
