  • In the search bar above enter 17.10 touchpad or 17.10 keyboard for many Q&As. Click on newest and hopefully within you'll find a solution. – WinEunuuchs2Unix Jan 28 '18 at 2:20
  • You can also check if the touchpad works under vanilla(main) Ubuntu. Try running Ubuntu from live CD/USB. If touchpad works under Ubuntu and you can't find any solution, you may install Ubuntu and install Xubuntu desktop over it(askubuntu.com/questions/65861/…). As last resort :-) – HattinGokbori87 Jan 28 '18 at 20:44
