Touchpad acting wierd.

Postby Ole Erik on Thu Mar 27, 2008 12:59 pm

Hi again!

So, i have mint installed on my laptop, but i have one problem.

The touchpad sometimes work and sometimes dont.

Ican move the mouse around but after some second it stops moving for 1 - 10 sec. When it stops the mousebuttons works.

It works perfect under windows and the live cd.

Is this random?
I've been having similar problems with an optical mouse lately, but I've found out that it has to do with Firefox directly and/or my internet connection (seeding with 63kB/s which is close to where it has side effects)
If you think this is not it post your /etc/xorg.conf and which touchpad you have - there are issues with some
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

If you have a "disable pad" button, I find that this causes issues when re activating the pad. Sometimes it locks the screen, other times it takes about 10-30 seconds for the pad to be activated again, at least on my HP dv6618eo.
