[Bug 810653] Re: Gestures won't work on HP/Compaq mini 311 touchpad


PeterPall, this bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been any
activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue? If
so, could you please test for this with the latest development release
of Ubuntu? ISO images are available from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com
/daily-live/current/ .

If it remains an issue, could you please run the following command in
the development release from a Terminal
(Applications->Accessories->Terminal), as it will automatically gather
and attach updated debug information to this report:

apport-collect -p linux <replace-with-bug-number>

Also, could you please test the latest upstream kernel available (not the daily folder) following https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds ? It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please comment on which kernel version specifically you tested. If this bug is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following tags:

where VERSION-NUMBER is the version number of the kernel you tested. For example:

This can be done by clicking on the yellow circle with a black pencil icon next to the word Tags located at the bottom of the bug description. As well, please remove the tag:

If the mainline kernel does not fix this bug, please add the following tags:

As well, please remove the tag:

Once testing of the upstream kernel is complete, please mark this bug's
Status as Confirmed. Please let us know your results. Thank you for your

  Gestures won't work on HP/Compaq mini 311 touchpad

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  The touchpad of the HP Mini 311 seems to be recognized as a touchpad. It partially seems to work, too: I can move the mouse pointer and if I tap on the touchpad this is recognized as a click. This feature tends to be rather hysterical, though, so for a few weeks now I am trying to tell the touchpad to disable tap-on-click while typing. All tools that could help there I am aware of (syndaemon, gnome-mouse-properties, syncmd) seem to know that my touchpad is a touchpad and offer me to change configuration parameters. syncmd even shows the altered value for the parameters afterwards if I try to read them back.
  The problem now is that no matter what I am doing my tries to change the sensitivity, gesture, tapping, scroll or any other part of the touchpad's behavior seem to be completely ignored by the touchpad itself: It always stays in the default mode (No two-finger-scroll, no edge or circular scroll, default sensitivity and click-on-tap is enabled).
  There already has been a bug report for this issue (Bug #527890) but it is now closed since it was filed against a series of Ubuntu that is no more supported.
