No Touchpad Option Under Mouse Settings. (Screenshot)

Postby tripleti on Thu Feb 02, 2012 5:57 pm

Hi everyone.

I am not able to use my touchpad except for navigating i cannot scroll at all and inside of my mouse settings the touchpad option can not be found. I keep switching back and forth from LM12 and LMDE because of this issue.
Note that when i use the Linux Mint 12 i have these options on my laptop but not when i am using LMDE.
I am not a newbie as far as linux goes so solutions wont be too tough for me to figure out.

On both LM12 and LMDE, please share the output of following command (and indicate which is which :wink:). Probably on LMDE you will have to install some additional modules or drivers or something.

Hmmm, I would have though the touchpad would show up as a USB device. It may be the empty line, not sure. Without knowing what touchpad you actually have, hard to fix it.

Code: Select all
The program 'xinput' is currently not installed.  To run 'xinput' please ask your administrator to install the package 'xinput'
xinput: command not found


Im guessing i should install this?

With the second command... nothing output

i'll try it

Sounds like the driver is not getting loaded, xserver-xorg-input-synaptics is the relevant package. What make/model is your laptop?
