[Bug 1335463] Re: [Toshiba Satellite E55-A5114] ETPS/2 Elantech Touchpad not working on 14.04


I had a similar problem with my acer aspire one. Downloading and
installing the latest manline kernel  4.1.1 did not help in detection.
Then I found that newer kernel if Single is added as a boot parameter.
Once it is detected the stock ubuntu kernel 3.16 also detected the
touchpad on direct reboot. However on shutting down the laptop, the
touchpad is not detected again. Hope this helps.

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Please, guide me on the way of providing valuable information for
  fixing this bug as my girlfriend is going to kill me for needing to
  use an external mouse.

  I have installed Ubuntu on a brand new Toshiba laptop, so I haven't tested on older versions.
  It detects the touchpad as in these dmesg lines:
  [    1.788049] psmouse serio1: elantech: assuming hardware version 4 (with firmware version 0x381f01)
