[Bug 1244716] Re: Trackpad not detected; Asus K55N (AMD)


I experienced this as well on my K55N.  Saturday night I left the laptop
suspended and discovered that the battery was dead by Sunday afternoon.
After plugging in and rebooting, the trackpad didn't work and was not
recognized.  I shut down and restarted several times throughout the day
on Sunday.  Sunday night I decided to play a game, so I restarted the pc
and booted into Windows 8.1.  The trackpad worked fine in Windows and
continued to function in Ubuntu after shutting down Windows and
restarting.  Trackpad is still working fine in Ubuntu today after shut
down over night and boot today.  Weird.

Same laptop, Asus K55N with AMD A8.  Ubuntu 13.10 with fglrx installed.

  Trackpad not detected; Asus K55N (AMD)

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Following upgrade to 13.10 my trackpad was working fine, but I had
  been having suspend issues. Apparently, last time I closed the lid on
  the laptop, it didn't suspend, as when I retrieved it today, it was
  dead. After starting the computer, the trackpad was no longer working.

  I do not think that this was following a kernel upgrade, but the page
  at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingTouchpadDetection suggested that
  non-detection is a kernel issue. I don't really know much about kernel
  bug reporting, so forgive me if I'm doing anything wrong. :)
