Just installed Lubuntu 14.10 on Toshiba Satellite A305-S6872. Cursor is immediately in middle of screen and will not move. Is there something I can do from the terminal that will fix the issue? The other, similar questions on this site seem to be unanswered. Hopefully someone can come forward with some useful info. Thanks in advance!
Ok, so I followed the solution ref by @Smile4ever above. The main issue others might run into is creating the file in
/etc/modprobe.d due to permissions.
This opens terminal as admin so be careful.
gksudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/psmouse.conf
In gedit type:
options psmouse proto=imps
Save and exit.
sudo modprobe -r psmouse sudo modprobe psmouse proto=imps
the end, roll credits
