Laptop trackpad not working at all after installing ubuntu

ao flag

so i recently installed ubuntu 20.04 on my toshiba satellite l850 laptop and the trackpad trackpad is not working a usb mouse works though. I can confirm it isn't a hardware issue since it works on windows.

I found this in the logs applications under the hardware section psmouse serio1: failed to enable mouse on isa0060/serio1

If anymore info is needed I'm ready to provide it.

Could you [edit] your question to include the Terminal output of `sudo lsusb`? This will include details about the USB devices such as the trackpad, making it a bit easier to offer a solution

Umm is a trackpad a usb device though?

On most modern systems, yes. If it's PCI-based (which would be odd), then you may see it with `sudo lspci`. Either way, the hardware ID of the device is what's needed to see if there is something special required to make it work.

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
