[Bug 1058346] Re: [Acer Aspire One 725] Touchpad not working


Launchy, the reason you are having different results is because you have
different parts under the hood. You may verify this by reviewing your
own lspci.txt versus the one attached here.

Hence, if you are having an issue, it would be best to continue to
comment on your report
(https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1216422) versus
continuing to post on a report that is marked Fix Released, as
documented to you in

Thank you for your understanding.

  [Acer Aspire One 725] Touchpad not working

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  Touchpad will not work out of the box on this netbook.
  It is confirmed by others on Ubuntu forums: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?s=cec0ec3dc913c2a7b7e5579ce76e8609&t=2020719&page=2

  I have tested through the following mainline kernels and this issue is not reproducible:

  This workaround will fix the problem partially:

      Open the Terminal
      cd /etc/modprobe.d/
      gksudo gedit options.conf
      In the text editor, type: options psmouse proto=imps
      Save the file and close it.
      sudo modprobe -r psmouse
      sudo modprobe psmouse

  but has sideeffects as you will read.

  WORKAROUND: Pushing Fn+F7 (which is the turn on combination for the
  touchpad) before loging in makes the tp work perfectly.
