1 Answer 1

Is it an elantech or synaptics touchpad? try opening a terminal and

modprobe -r psmouse
modprobe psmouse proto=imps

If it works make it permanent by

  • options psmouse proto=imps | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/options.conf

(this is an old workaround, I'm not 100% it will work in 11.10 64bit)

another option is to take a look at this package of tools specifically for samsung @sourceforge.
