When I start out running 11.10 (Ocelot) from the Live CD the touchpad works with no problem. Once installing however the touchpad does not work at all. I have installed all updates available.
I have tried installing the synaptiks touchpad package and the gpointer package from the software manager, this did not help.
Under System Settings -> Mouse and Touchpad there is only a mouse tab, no touchpad tab. It seems my touchpad is not even recognized.
I have tried running several things in the terminal that I have found under similar questions, but I always get errors about the files not being found, or the drivers not being found.
sudo modprobe -r psmouse sudo modprobe psmouse proto=imps
This results in an error message.
dconf-editor Can load the GUI, but after that I can't seem to navigate through it to find the files that need editing.
Read what's listed here.
But I've got no GRUB, running only Ubuntu.
As you can see I've been trying several things and nothing has worked so far, would appreciate any help.
