I am using Xubuntu on Lenovo 3000 G430 Laptop. For touchpad to work everytime after startup:

  1. I have to press Fn+F8 (This will lock touchpad)
  2. Now, light on my touchpad glows,
  3. And then I have to press Fn+F8 (This will unlock touchpad)
  4. And then it starts to work.

I have tried:

xinput set-prop 14 "Device Enabled" 1

( 14 being the device id of touchpad. No luck )

I have tried (without success):

sudo modprobe -r psmouse
sudo modprobe psmouse proto=imps  

xinput --list
