Debian Hardware :: Acer Aspire One - Synaptics Touchpad Not Working At All?

Apr 1, 2011

I tried to create an xorg.conf because I didn't have one already. I put the configuration for the synaptics touchpad in it and in the gnome preferences/mouse my touchpad actually was recognized by its name. But still it didn't work :/ I tried deleting my xorg.conf and making a xorg.conf.d directory with synaptics.conf because I saw someone recommend it in another thread. But now the gnome/mouse settings doesn't see it and it still doesn't work. I've read several threads from Arch Linux's forums saying it may be that the module is loaded twice, but I really have no idea.

Here's the /proc/bus/input/devices:

I: Bus=0011 Vendor=0002 Product=0007 Version=01b1
N: Name="SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad"
P: Phys=isa0060/serio1/input0

Debian Hardware :: Synaptics Touchpad Simply Not Working?

May 26, 2015

I recently installed Debian with the Xfce desktop environment on my Toshiba Satellite laptop and my Synaptics touchpad simply does not work. In fact, it was not even working in the Debian graphical installation.

I verified that the touchpad is enabled by going to Applications --> Settings --> Mouse and Touchpad. I also verified that I had the requisite drivers by running Code: Select allsudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-synaptics. Finally, /var/log/Xorg.0.log did not reveal anything unusual, though the output is quite long and was difficult to navigate. Here is the output of Code:

Select allcat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep Synaptics:

Code: Select all[   464.205] (II) config/udev: Adding input device SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad (/dev/input/event15)

Debian Hardware :: SYnaptics Touchpad - Tapping Not Working

Mar 27, 2011

Since when I installed Debian, I couldn't manage to make the tapping function of this touchpad work on my laptop - a Dell Latitude C610, with Debian squeeze. As suggested on [URL], I created a xorg.conf file with

Xorg :1 -configure

After that, I opened the file for editing it. There was no line regarding the Touchpad. The closest to that I found was

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse0"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "auto"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5 6 7"
EndSection

I tried adding the lines on [URL] ... C_Xorg_7.5 to the file, but it didn't work. I also tried installing gsynaptics but, even though the tapping function was enabled there, it didn't work. A weird fact is that vertical scrolling with two finger touch is working, but not tapping.

Fedora Hardware :: Synaptics Touchpad Working Intermittently?

Aug 25, 2010

I'm running F13 on an HP-dv6 with a Synaptics touchpad. I have not had any problems with the touchpad until the latest kernel upgrade to 2.6.33.8-149.fc13.x86_64. Now, intermittently with no obvious cause, yhe Synaptics driver fails to load at boot resulting in a dead touchpad. I've tried altering my xorg.conf with no results. The error message I get during boot when this happens is:

Code:
unable to query Synaptics hardware I've done some Googling as well as searching these forums and have found several suggestions, none of which seem to work. I already have /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-synaptics.conf which reads:

Code:
##
Section "InputClass"
Identifier "touchpad catchall"
MatchIsTouchpad "on"
MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
Driver "synaptics"
Option "TapButton1" "1"
EndSection

When it works it works great. Just seems to be no rhyme or reason for it. When it's not working and I try to run synclient I get an error that the synaptics module is not loaded. I'm wondering if anyone else has had this problem, or is it just me?

Slackware :: Synaptics Touchpad Not Working On Initial Cold Boot?

Jan 10, 2010

What happens is on first boot, my Synaptics touchpad is not being recognised by the Kernel, so I have to boot a second time when it will start working.I have followed and tried loads of advice from different threads, including the copying and editing of the 11-x11-synaptics.fdi file under etc/hal/policy. Also the psmouse proto=any trick. The rmmod and further modprobe of psmouse. Restarting both HALD and UDEV both later and earlier in the boot procedure . The results of all of which is the same. The touchpad only works on second and subsequent warm boots.Below is the output of cat /proc/bus/input/devices for cold and warm bootCold boot

Code:
I: Bus=0017 Vendor=0001 Product=0001 Version=0100

Debian :: HP 8460p Laptop - Configuring Synaptics TouchPad

May 27, 2011

I have an HP 8460p laptop and have installed Debian(!) Squeeze. The Synaptics TouchPad works, but I am unable to adjust the configuration (primarily pointer speed/acceleration). I have installed package xserver-xorg-input-synaptics according to this Debian wiki page: [URl] My Synaptics device: tyler@titanium:~$ egrep -i 'synap|alps|etps' /proc/bus/input/devices N: Name="ImPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad"

Output from synclient and syndaemon: tyler@titanium:~$ synclient -l Couldn't find synaptics properties. No synaptics driver loaded? tyler@titanium:~$ syndaemon Unable to find a synaptics device. I have tried building /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/synaptics.conf and restarting but nothing changed: Section "InputClass"

[Code]....

I also examined [URL] and I just couldn't get very far to understand what was wrong, or what I needed to do.

Debian Hardware :: Synaptics Touchpad - Can't Tap (Wheezy 7.2 LXDE)

Feb 4, 2014

I had a question about how to configure wheezy 7.2 on a laptop with a Synaptics touchpad. As installed, the touchpad is recognized; I can move the mouse pointer with it, and even scroll vertically with the touchpad's scroll strip. However, it won't let me tap or double-tap on the pad to emulate mouse clicks, like I can in other OSes. I am running the LXDE desktop on Debian Wheezy 7.2.

And, there is no configuration that I can find for the Synaptics touchpad in the default setup; I looked all through the menus.

So far, I've tried a few suggestions I've found while searching. I installed a GUI-based config program called "GPointing Device Settings", and *some* of the settings in that program seem to work with the Synaptics touchpad, but others, like the tapping settings, don't.

One point of confusion for me is that some of the solutions I've seen mention a folder /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/synaptics.conf; however, on my system, there is no xorg.conf.d folder underneath /etc/X11, and in fact, I can't find that folder anywhere on the system. The page I was looking at is here: [URL] .... does LXDE use a different X setup than other desktop environments?

Debian Hardware :: Synaptics TouchPad Jumps To Right Edge?

Feb 10, 2010

after finally being able to find the right configuration file for the Synaptics driver (I still think the change from HAL to udev was too silent...), I have gained the ability to configure my TouchPad. One Issue has been bothering me for a long time now: When moving the cursor from left to the right, at a certain position the mouse cursor jumps to the right edge of the screen.Here is the output of synclient while moving the finger constantly from left to right to illustrate the issue:

[code]....

Note that the value of RightEdge was changed by me in order to see if it has something to do with the issue. It has not, the cursor jumps at the same position, regardless of this value.

Debian Hardware :: PS/2 Synaptics TouchPad Detected As Mouse?

Jun 23, 2011

I'm running Debian Squeeze on an HP Pavilion dv6-6040ca. The touchpad featured is relatively new, which is likely the root of my problem. The touchpad with its winblows driver features a backlight, two mouse buttons (buttons,not dedicated touchpad space), and an 'on/off' switch/zone in the top left of the touchpad. The touchpad zone works well for pointing, but no gesture support. The touchpad's tap/click feature works way too well, which is very frustrating. The touchpad is detected as a mouse, so there is no option in System->Preferences->Mouse for a touchpad. Both mouse buttons function as expected. The 'on/off' switch/zone does not function, nor does the backlight.

The only feature I really need is the ability to turn off the tap/click feature, as it makes typing a nightmare. It's gotten to the point where I wrote a shell script to toggle the loading/unloading of my psmouse module (which isn't a bad solution, but I don't want my general account having access to modprobe).

Here are some details:

/proc/bus/input/devices
cat /proc/bus/input/devices
I: Bus=0017 Vendor=0001 Product=0001 Version=0100
N: Name="Macintosh mouse button emulation"

[code]....

I'm using the proprietary ATI driver (couldn't do 3D with the open driver), and I'm using a proprietary wireless module for my RaLink wireless adapter.

Passing parameters to the psmouse module
Unloading the psmouse module
Trusting HAL entirely (no xorg)

[code]....

also the xorg input synaptics driver is installed. Now here's the fun part where the obvious things I've overlooked are quickly pointed out to me.

Debian Hardware :: Synaptics Touchpad Settings In Xorg Have No Effect

Feb 16, 2010

I suppose this thread has been created over a hundred times in the history of this forum, but yet it seems like I cannot find any solution to it. Nor has the Debian IRC-channel been able to channel the requiered information to me so I'm comming here as sort of a last resort.So my issue is that, as described in the topic, none of the settings I set in /etc/X11/xorg.conf have any effect on the touchpad. Other settings in xorg.conf such as color-depth for the screen and driver for the graphics card have effect but not the touchpad section. And if I make a syntax-error in the xorg.conf file X doesn't want to start, which is a clear indication that it's using that config file.

Debian Hardware :: Synaptics Touchpad - Nasty Errors In Xorg Log

Jun 16, 2010

I'm having some trouble with my synaptic touchpad. Actually I think it is kind of working (I only use the trackpoint) but it gives me these nasty errors in Xorg log. I'm running Debian squeeze with 2.6.32-5-686 and Xorg 7.7

I've read some posts concerning touchpads (click) and the links within, but nothing seems to help or I'm doing something wrong. Hope you can bring some light to my darkness. Here some infos (I've renamed some files to .txt to ensure that they will be displayed in the browser): Xorg.0.log /etc/udev/rules.d/66-synaptics.rules xorg.conf /proc/bus/input/devicesCan someone tell me why the touchpad cannot be found by X? I already tried various configurations but nothing solved my problem so far.

Debian Hardware :: Synaptics Touchpad Drivers Don't Work On New Laptop?

May 26, 2011

I just installed Debian on my new VAIO VPCS13. It seems to be working for the most part, except it does not recognize my Synaptics touchpad at all.

I've had Ubuntu installed on this computer before and the mousepad worked fine. This being Debian on a new-generation computer, it makes me think that Debian just probably hasn't released the update yet.

Ubuntu :: Battery Icon On Acer Aspire One Not Working

Dec 26, 2010

I just got new netbook for christmas and so I promptly set it up with a dual boot system cause Windows 7 starter is garbage.Anyways after ditching the Netbook Remix because quite frankly I found the Unity setup to be quite garbage. Nothing worked the way I wanted it to and I found it quite annoying.So I ditched it for the regular desktop version. I quickly found that the battery indicator didn't work.

I removed and re added the indicator panel. Nothing. killed the gnome panel and restarted it multiple times. still nothing. Restarted multiple times. nothing. I even reinstalled gnome-power-management to no avail. I also installed laptop-mode-tools and nothing has worked. I went into the power settings and set it to always display the icon and it simply showed a lightning bolt as if there was no battery and it was a tower computer.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Still Not Working On 11.04 & Acer Aspire One?

This bug has been around for years now?!? Surely this can be fixed by now, would somebody please feel this very common issue. I've installed Ubuntu 11.04 on my Acer Aspire One 110AB netbook and everything seems to work fine except the wireless - I can connect via ethernet no problem.

While the wireless can scan for networks - it seems them but they seem to be rather weak signals and also no matter never connect UNLESS I turn off ALL WEP/WPA security clearly not an option.

I've tried installing the Broadcom driver that appears when I run Hardware Drivers, but that doesn't help.With the old install, the wireless switch and indicator light on the front of the netbook worked, now nothing.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Acer Aspire One Mic Not Working With Flash 10 Chat

Sep 5, 2010

i recently installed ubuntu on my netbook, an acer aspireone. got everything running properly. at first i had a problem with using webcam online for sites using flash 10 (facebook, videos, tinychat), but someone directed me to the adobe control panel and after setting some permissions, everything was working fine. yesterday, i installed a bunch of updates, and since then the built-in microphone stopped working in chat.

the microphone still works if i record audio or use it in other applications. but for all of the sites using flash for video chat (listed above) i can only get the camera working, not the mic. i don't get any error messages or anything different from before. the only difference is that no sound is coming through. i wish i knew which updates i've installed yesterday. one of them must have caused the problem, since it was working fine before then.

Debian Hardware :: Internal SD Reader On Acer Aspire One?

Jun 7, 2011

I've recently acquired a little 10" netbook (Acer Aspire One D255) and am running Debian squeeze on it. It runs great except for the internal SD card reader, which doesn't do anything. If I have a USB card reader handy then it works fine, but it would be nice to have the internal card reader working if possible.

/var/log/messages says this:usb 1-5: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 3
usb 1-5: New USB device found, idVendor=0cf2, idProduct=6250
usb 1-5: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=4
usb 1-5: Product: UB6250
usb 1-5: Manufacturer: ENE FlashBut no device is created and nothing can be mounted.

Doing a little searching reveals many similar complaints from last year, without particularly satisfactory solutions, but I can't find anything more recent. Does anyone know if there's a Debian fix for this yet? By which I mean a simple fix involving adding a module package or maybe upgrading to a wheezy kernel or something like that?
