I decided to swap from Windows to Ubuntu 20.04 (I'm a newbie) and I found a problem with the touchpad.
uname -r gives:
⎡ Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)] ⎜ ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer id=4 [slave pointer (2)] ⎜ ↳ PS/2 Logitech Wheel Mouse id=15 [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)] ↳ Video Bus id=8 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Power Button id=9 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Sleep Button id=10 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Lenovo EasyCamera: Lenovo EasyC id=12 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Ideapad extra buttons id=13 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard id=14 [slave keyboard (3)]
It shows the touchpad as PS/2 Logitech Wheel Mouse.
xserver-xorg is already the newest version (1:7.7+19ubuntu14).
What I've tried:
I installed first the binary:
No problems, but the touchpad still not working.
I'd appreciate help to fix this issue; I know that it is known issue, and probably the solution is in front of me, but you can appreciate I'm new to Ubuntu.
xserver-xorg-input-synaptics. It can only spoil the system and break dependencies.
libinputis used as a user space driver in Ubuntu 20.04. I suggest removing that package. 2) If your touchpad is not shown in xinput it makes no sense at all trying to tinker with user space drivers. The problem is with the kernel support. Most likely this touchpad is not supported yet, or needs some kernel option to workaround it. The latter is unlikely.
