Touchpad often not detected on HP 625

Postby ibruell on Sun Jun 17, 2012 3:54 am

Often when I boot my laptop in battery mode, the touchpad is not detected correctly or sometimes not detected at all. So I have to reboot the machine.

The kernel detects it correctly I think

Code: Select all
[    8.441196] psmouse serio4: synaptics: Touchpad model: 1, fw: 7.4, id: 0x1e0b1, caps: 0xd04773/0xa40000/0xa0400

[    8.485009] input: SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad as /devices/platform/i8042/serio4/input/input7


xorg has some trouble:

I tried the following with /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf:

Code: Select all
Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "touchpad catchall"
        Driver "synaptics"
        MatchIsTouchpad "on"
        Option "Protocol" "event"
        Option "TouchpadOff" "0"
        Option "TapButton1" "1"
        Option "VertEdgeScroll" "1"
EndSection


Most the time I boot the laptop supplied to power the touchpad is correctly detected.

Before I installed Linux Mint LMDE I have used Ubuntu 10.10 without problems.

I have linuxmint debian 201204 installed.

Anyone an idea ???
