I have a serious problem with my ASUS 1005PX, running Ubuntu 13.04. The keyboard is very slow and working unreliable (e.g. input is 'jjjjj' if 'j' is input) and the touch-pad is dead. In the beginning it worked properly with full touch-pad functionality, but after some time the problems started and now I only can use it with a USB keyboard and USB mouse. This is what I tried:
- update BIOS
- update kernel to 3.9.3
- Instal gpointing-device-settings
options psmouse proto=impsand afterwards run
sudo modprobe -r psmouse && sudo modprobe psmouse
- edit /etc/X11/gksu gedit xorg.conf and added the text:
Identifier "ETPS/2 Elantech Touchpad"
MatchProduct "ETPS/2 Elantech Touchpad"
Option "AreaTopEdge" "50"
edited grub by sudo gedit /etc/default/grub and added:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quietly splash acpi_iso=Linux acpi=off " GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="i8042.nomux=1 locale=fr_FR i8042.reset"
I also installed other distro's like ubuntu 12.10; MintKDE 14; DSL; PuppyLinux; Fuduntu; Fedora, Lubuntu 12.10 etc
At this stage, none of the above options solves the problem. Sometimes when a new distro is installed, the touch-pad reacted for short moment. So it is not a hardware problem. Does anyone see a solution?
