So I have just bought a HP stream 11 and installed Ubuntu Gnome 14.10. I am having trouble with the touch pad it is expressing this functionality
- An optical USB mouse plugged into the laptop works normally IF the trackpad mouse buttons are never used.
- Clicking the left or right button sections of the trackpad does NOT result in any left or right click action occurring (e.g. opening right click menu).
- Using basic click touchpad gestures that are on the main section of the trackpad work normally (i.e. single finger tap to left click, two finger tap to right click, two finger drag to scroll).
I realise that this is a bug but in this review on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/review/R28HR668I6LU8Y/ref=cm_cd_pg_next?ie=UTF8&asin=B00NSHLUBU&cdForum=Fx32V5DBEJH4RUL&cdPage=3&cdThread=Tx1I5CUWGAIAGT5&store=pc#wasThisHelpful
The reviewer talks about how clicking the "Enable Mouse Clicks With Touchpad" solves the problem. I can't find this option in gnome I presume that he found the button in Unity.
Any help much appreciated.
