Now I know that this has been asked several times here but I couldn't find any decent solution to it.
I am running Ubuntu 12.04 on my DELL N5110 and my touchpad is detected as a mouse, So I don't have the touchpad options availiable. Can't use multitouch and can't disable it either.
I have tried the dkms driver from this link.
But when I tried to install it with
dpkg -i command,
dpkg returns the following error:
ERROR (dkms apport): unable to determine source package for psmouse-alps-dkms Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 3.2.0-25-generic-pae (i686) Consult /var/lib/dkms/psmouse-alps/0.10/build/make.log for more information.
I have installed all the updates as well.
Can someone help me out with this issue?
