I am using Kubuntu 16.04.02 When I connect the USB mouse I can use the touch pad but as soon as I unplug it it stops working. When I go into touch pad from settings it says no touch pad is connected?
Isn't that strange?
From touch pad settings this is the pad: HID 04d9:1133
The command that shows hardware shows the touch pad ONLY when the mouse is connected. As soon as it's gone the device ID is gone with it!
Things went worse after updating the kernel, thinking it might bring driver updates. I'm on 4.11 now.
