Laptop install of Ubuntu 20.04. It's a dell inspiron 5402 (non touch screen laptop). After it suspends the keyboard and trackpad stop working. I looked into it some and found several fixes.
The problem originally was both of them stop working after suspending or locking. I tried adding
i805.reset to the grub command. That caused it to work for about 5 seconds after locking.
I then tried replacing ...

So I've bought a Lenovo IdeaPad 5 and installed Ubuntu 21.04 on it. While a Mouse works just fine, the Touchpad does not. I've tried numerous methods I've found on YouTube and different forums. I edited a lot of things in grub and updated it, rebooted the laptop and also tried the kernel method but unfortunately nothing works. I don't know if I should reinstall Ubuntu, try an older version or try ...
So for the last day or two, DiskUsage keeps complaining about no disk space on my root
I can mitigate this issue by editing the
/etc/systemd/journald.conf and setting the
SystemMaxUse=200M and then restarting the
journald by running
sudo service systemd-journald restart.
However, I'd like to get to the root issue of this because the following line is continually dumped into my logs for some ...
I'm taking a look at this laptop for a friend. She installed Ubuntu 21.04 over the Windows installation and everything seems to be working with one exception. The mouse, whether touchpad or external, doesn't move the pointer. It stays stuck in the lower left corner.
I've tried installing xserver-xorg-input-synaptics, I can't find anything in the BIOS that seems to apply to the touchpad. I'm prett ...
I have just dual-booted windows 10 with Ubuntu 20.04 and I am facing a problem with scrolling on any page in Ubuntu.
Whenever I scroll down a page with the touch-pad contents get skipped or move very fast.
I have tried many things to overcome this problem like changing some settings in synaptic.
For eg: slowing down the speed of scrolling with "Synaptics Scrolling Distance " but not hopefully succeeded ...
I am using Kubuntu 18.04 LTS on a Dell XPS 13 7390. Recently I got the update needed notification and, as any other user, updated my system promptly. When I rebooted my laptop my touchpad does not work properly anymore.
KDE settings do show that I have enabled "click emulation" and "inverse vertical scrolling" but what the settings show is just not true. Neither click emulation nor inverse scroll ...
When I scroll vertically, it scrolls horizontally in parallel. It is impossible to slide two fingers down in the table, so that there is no horizontal scrolling. This was not the case before. I want to make sure that when I scroll down in the table, the screen does not move a little to the right / left. That is, I want both horizontal and vertical scrolling to be available, but when calling one, the sec ...
I want to disable the touchpad while typing. There is an option to do this in the xfce touchpad settings but this doesn't enable it on the login screen (lightdm greeter) though it works fine after login. I have looked through the lightdm gtk greeter settings but there's no option for this. It's very annoying to have to input a long password multiple times because the cursor jumps around due to my hand t ...
I have an HP Pavilion Gaming Laptop 15-ec0xxx with Ubuntu 20.04, and its ETPS/2 Elantech Touchpad is not working
The touchpad shows up in xinput list, and so does my USB optical mouse, the ID of my mouse (9) is lower than that of the touchpad (12). I think this means that my mouse is registered before the touchpad.
Touchpad also shows up in /cat/proc/input/devices.
I have tried the following solutions -an ...
So I installed the Focal Fossa 20.04 LTS version of Ubuntu earlier, since then the touchpad bugged out and wasnt working. I checked out a YT tutorial, which said something about etc/default/grub, but i accidentally force closed the terminal during the process, and now the 'etc/default/grub' is missing. How can I fix it?
Installed UBUNTU 20.04 on my HP 15s laptop as dual boot with windows 10. The trackpad worked in "try" mode. After install of UBUNTU, the trackpad worked the first time i started UBUNTU. But after that it disapeared from UBUNTU.
Windows 10 has no problems.
How can i re-install the elantech driver?
recently I have been facing with issues for Nvidia drivers and eventually I decided to clean install Ubuntu 21.04. which indeed solved the issue. However, now my touchpad is not working at all. At this point I am quite desperate and feel like I have tried everything. But I am not a highly experienced Linux user so there is a chance that I did not do something correctly.
Previously I was running U ...
I have a Dell Inspiron 14 5000 series laptop where I have installed Ubuntu 18.04. However, the two finger scrolling is not working.
Also, I have seen from some posts that there should be separate settings for mouse and touch pad. But as per the image, I only have settings for mouse and no touchpad.
Any solutions/suggestions to this would be appreciated.
I am using Ubuntu via hyper-v.. two finger scroll via touchpad is too sensitive (ie) it is too fast for page scroll. I am also not getting touchpad options in settings.

On my Thinkpad L13 with Elantech Touchpad running Ubuntu 20.04 I want to disable upper left corner of touchpad to avoid double contact when I click or keep my finger on the left mouse button and at the same time move mouse pointer. The problem is if there is a contact in the corner I can't move pointer with another finger.

I have installed Ubuntu 21.04 on my Razer Blade Pro 17 (2021). Everything, including the touchscreen and the keyboard, works fine. However, the touchpad, including button presses, doesn't work.
How can I make the touchpad work on my laptop?
Moving my finger 3 cm over the touchpad moves the cursor across approximately half the screen, regardless how quickly/slowly I do it.
That means I either can't easily hit a click target (current settings) or can't quickly move across the screen. Normally, I'm used to touchpads moving "faster" on fast movements (i.e. moving your finger quickly by 3 cm moves the cursor across the entire screen, mov ...
I'm currently on Ubuntu 21.04, the touchpad does not work at all. The red pointer works for moving the mouse and the buttons above the touchpad works, but the actual touchpad does not.
I've tried installing xserver-xorg-input-synaptics but that did not resolve the issue. I'm unable to find anyone with a similar issue or any linux touchpad drivers online.
I have recently installed Ubuntu 20.04 on my Dell Precision 5530 laptop. It has a Intel® Xeon(R) E-2176M CPU, 32GB of RAM, a 256GB NVME SSD.
The problem I'm having is that often, and it seems to be about 50% of the time, a mouse click doesn't register and then I have to click again. Sometimes I have to click a 3rd time. In a few instances it seems like those missed clicks get "caught up" and ...
Sometimes I have the problem, that when I tap on a folder from my favourites list in nautilus on the left with my touchpad, additionally to opening that folder the mouse also grabs the folder to move it up or down. I have to place it where it was to get the mouse free again.
If I log out and in again into my desktop the problem is gone. But it is really annoying (reloading the session with ALT+F2 "r ...
I installed Ubuntu 21.04 on my e-tab pro, previously it had Windows 10 installed and there was no problem. When Ubuntu boots up and the device is in a vertical position, the desktop is shown correctly, and if I connect a mouse everything works as it should, while if I try to use the touchscreen, the input is recognized but it is on the opposite side of the screen in all and two axes of movement, then w ...
I'm running Ubuntu 21.10 development preview on a Lenovo 82B500DBAU, with xmonad-wm.
It has a
MSFT0001:00 06CB:7F28 Touchpad, which for the most part seems to work quite well (notably though, isn't supported [at all] in Linux kernels shipping with <= 21.04), which is being driven by
Two-finger scrolling, two-finger right-click, tap to click, and 3/4 finger gestures (using
My device's touchpad/trackpad has been acting weird lately. I am not able to "click" to click. But I rather have to "tap" to click. I can do click-drag (double-tap-drag works as though click-drag). I can also do right-click by just doing a two finger tap, but I can't right-click-drag, which I really need for my workflow. I wonder how I can make fn (or any other key) + click-drag behave like right-click- ...

The USB Live Ubuntu 21.04 will load to the installation screen, but the monitor is stuck at 1024x768 (the default) with no other options, and the keyboard is completely unusable as well as the touchpad. Nothing works that I can access. Previous editions of Ubuntu (19.10 and early 20.10) will work just fine, so there seems to be a problem with this build (as well as other flavors based on this build) not ...
