I have a Samsung RF510 laptop computer. Upon installing Ubuntu 10.10 onto it I could not get the trackpad to function properly. It works as a basic mouse (point and click) but had no functionality for edge scrolling or any of the multitouch settings the trackpad is capable of.
I discovered the reason is a known issue where the Ubuntu kernel will improperly detect an Elantech trackpad as a logitech PS/2 wheel mouse, and as such will gain none of the functionality that seems to be coded for synaptics trackpads.
Is there any way to get this working properly? I would like basic scrolling/zooming/etc I've been used to using these features for as long as I can remember.
