I found the solution from Arch Linux Forum, here is the link. https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=148115

To get the touchpad working I had to append

i8042.notimeout i8042.nomux

to the kernel boot parameters.



sudo gedit /etc/default/grub

then find this line


Extend the line with adding the above mentioned kernel boot parameter like below.

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash i8042.notimeout i8042.nomux"

Then update the rub

sudo update-grub

Reeboot the system, Cheers!

This worked for me on my Fujitsu Lifebook A series with Ubuntu 14.04:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash i8042.notimeout i8042.nomux"
