I've just attempted a reinstall of Ubuntu 12.10, which has resulted in my issue of the trackpad not working. I've run
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade, but still to no avail. Here is the output of
⎡ Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)] ⎜ ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer id=4 [slave pointer (2)] ⎜ ↳ USB Optical Mouse id=9 [slave pointer (2)] ⎣ Virtual core keyboard id=3 [master keyboard (2)] ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard id=5 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Power Button id=6 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Video Bus id=7 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Sleep Button id=8 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard id=10 [slave keyboard (3)]
As you can see, X has recognised my external USB mouse but not my touchpad. How can I get it to detect the trackpad?
I'm using a Lenovo Thinkpad X220T, with Quantal 12.10 64bit, Kernel Linux 3.5.0-26-generic and GNOME 3.6.0.
