Sub_title: A fix
 

Apparently this problem is a known bug in puppy 5.1.1. Here's the fix--

The fix is to run the Xorg Wizard from the menu. Menu>setup>xorg video wizard. This forces the Synaptics driver to load properly. Afterward, you can configure your touchpad using Flsynclient, menu>desktop>desktop settings>Flsynclient. to get better control of your touchpad.

I tried it and it worked.

It's behaving as if there is no touchpad.


Oh no!! Rolling Eyes

Just to prevent this from happening to others. Had the same issue on an Acer Travelmate 2300. Installed Puppy Linux Wary 5.3 and the touchpad was dead.

The solution ... Fn + F7 unlocks the touchpad!

Didn't see it because the labels on the keys were worn out. Somehow, installing Wary leads to the lock to be activated on this acer.
