Subject description: Lupu 5.0 and Lupu 5.1 (Works OK in 4.3.1)
 

I have a new Toshiba Satellite C650D but the touchpad does not work. I have tried Lupu 5.0 and 5.1.

It's behaving as if there is no touchpad. There is no entry for it in xorg.conf and synclient -l reports "Couldn't find synaptics properties. No sysnaptics driver loaded?"

Any ideas? Oh, it is enabled in BIOS. Smile

Hmm, now that I think about it, previous laptops I've tried with no problem have been running 4.31.

I'll try 4.31 on this one and see what happens.

OK. Booted the laptop with Puppy 4.3.1 and the touchpad works just fine!

Seems Lupu 5+ has an issue of some sort. Crying or Very sad

Can you go to menu>desktop>desktop settings>FISinclient and configure it from there?

I'm as much in the dark as you on this one. For me flsynclient works but for others it says it cannot find synaptics - I wish I knew what it is looking for!

One thing to try may be is to run xorg wizard and manually choose a video driver. This will create an xorg.conf hopefully with a synaptics section and maybe the touchpad will work.

On the other hand it might just be a thing with Toshibas!

I've been doing some searching. Toshibas seem to be having this problem with Ubuntu and slackware as well. I wonder if it is connected to the latest X-Org and its latest detection method (udev not HAL) - for some reason it does not get detected on Toshiba or gets detected differently?

I don't really know definitively what is going on. I am just trying to find info and gain an understanding. I wish I had an understanding on how hardware detection is done in Puppy and how the new X-Org works!

I might as well report my findings in case it helps.

On Ubuntu or Slackware the Toshiba trackpad appears to trigger the loading of the psmouse kernel driver. We then have a divergence of opinion. Ubuntu says loading the driver with the imps protocol option will work. Slackware says you definitely do NOT want this option.
Note: I think imps stands for 'Intellimouse PS/2'.

Assuming psmouse has been loaded with the wrong protocol then we remove the driver by using a terminal and giving the following command:

modprobe -r psmouse

to load the driver with a certain protocol we use

modprobe psmouse proto=imps (which is what Ubuntu says works)

or with no protocol

modprobe psmouse (which is what Slackware suggests)

I have also seen the following suggested

modprobe psmouse proto=any

If there is any file:
edit /etc/modprobe.d/psmouse

make sure the protocol is not set in that file as an option.

I have tried the above with my Puppy and I get the message there is no psmouse module but then I do not have a Toshiba and my trackpad works!

Even when you do all this I am not sure what is going to happen when you reboot X or reboot Puppy. After all, Ubuntu and Slackware are full install linuxes and changes take effect permanently.

Thanks, ICPUG.

Like you, I get the message that there is no psmouse module. I also had a quick browse around the links you posted but couldn't find anything that helped.

It's not vital that I get it working, I guess I'll just have to stick to winders on the laptop until someone figures it out!

Ah, the touchpad works fine with 4.3.1 but it has issues booting from my USB stick!

But that's another story... Rolling Eyes

PostPosted: Mon 30 Aug 2010, 01:49    Post subject: Seamonkey 2.0.5 does not behave like 1.1.18 did
Subject description: 4-way-scroll-button
 

I hope I am in the right place here as my problem is touchpad related but not necessarily Puppy 5.1.

My Acer Travelmate 6000 has a 4-way-scrollbutton beneath the touchpad (which works fine). In SeaMonkey 1.1.18 it scrolled up and down and the right and left scrollbuttons moved forward and back in the page-history.
In Version 2.0.5 only the up and down motion works the right and left scrollbuttons do not work.
Does anyone have an idea how I could get them to work again (using 2.0.5) because in 1.1.18 they work with Puppy 5.1?

Agility,

I don't have Seamonkey 2.0.5, but in Seamonkey 1.1.18 the mouse/touchpad horizontal scrolling through browsing history could be set in the Edit -> Preferences dialog by clicking the '+' box next to Advanced to show the sub-categories, then clicking Mouse Wheel and the appropriate radio button under Horizontal scrolling.

Alternatively, it could be set in about:config by setting mousewheel.horizscroll.withnokey.action to 2, which was the default in 1.1.18.

Possibly one or both of the above would work in 2.0.5?

Subject description: Same problem on a Toshiba NB305 netbook
 

I have the same problem on Toshiba netbook (NB305-N413BN). Synaptics driver not found, the mouse works, kind of, but it's real touchy i.e. sets off all sorts of programs by just barely touching the icon. A PITA!!
