[Bug 1374329] Re: Thinkpad T510 TouchPad/TrackPoint not working.



Since you installed stock Ubuntu and are not using the preinstalled
version that was certified with this system (10.10, as the system is a
bit old), this bug is not related to certification, so I'll move it
instead to the Linux kernel where the pointing device drivers live.

That said, it sounds like a hardware problem, as I think it's unlikely
the drivers for those basic pointing devices have changed. The last
release for which we certified the T510 was 12.04, so you could get a
12.04 live CD or USB and boot in "try ubuntu without installing" mode,
and confirm whether the pointing devices work with that. If they don't
work with that release, I'd suspect faulty hardware.
