  [HP Pavilion 14-v062us Notebook PC] Touchpad recognized as generic
  mouse, scroll not working

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Description:	Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS
  Release:	14.04

  Package: It is unclear to me which package is responsible.

  Expected Behavior: For the touchpad and/or ELAN touchscreen to have
  scroll capability.

  Actual Touchpad Behavior: When two or three fingers are put on the
  touchpad and a scrolling motion is made (in the center, or at either
  side), it causes the mouse to move as if it were being moved normally
  sometimes, other times the mouse stays still and doesn't move, but no
  scrolling is accomplished and the cursor doesn't change to a scrolling

  Actual Touchscreen Behavior: The touch screen shows the same behavior,
  except there is no case when the mouse stays still, it will always
  move as if being moved normally. In addition, the touchscreen's
  precision is markedly rough compared to my experience using this same
  touchscreen on Windows 8.1 (which has since been wiped from this
  machine, with pleasure).

  Touchpad Capabilities: Normal mouse movement, right-click using
  touchpad button, left-click using touchpad button, tap-to-click using
  touchpad, dragging the mouse while something is selected (either with
  the buttons or tap-to-click).

  Touchscreen Capabilities: Normal mouse movement, single-tap to select,
  dragging things after selecting them.

  "xinput list" gives me:

  ⎡ Virtual core pointer                    	      	id=2	[master pointer  (3)]
  ⎜   ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer              id=4	[slave  pointer  (2)]

      ↳ HP Wireless hotkeys                     	id=14	[slave  keyboard (3)]

  I searched the forums and tried all permutations of making sure
  synaptics is installed, tweaking settings for the mouse, and disabling
  'psmouse', but nothing works.

  If any outputs or tests need to be done on my end to give you more
  information, please just let me know. I'm happy to help so this bug
  can be fixed!
