Hi,
My touchpad is not working on the laptoop. I am new to linux.

I first tried to use the xinput list and the below result shows no touchpad

Virtual core pointer" id=0 [XPointer]

I then tried the below command as suggested which also did not work.


modprobe -r psmouse
modprobe psmouse proto=imps


I am not sure what should I do I know I am having a Elantech touchpad
on my laptop and it works fine under windows. I am using an axioo ml
058 and my os details are Linux vishal-laptop 2.6.28-11-generic
#42-Ubuntu SMP Fri Apr 17 01:57:59 UTC 2009 i686 GNU/Linux


Hope someone can help me here



Cheers,
