Hi everybody, I'm new to linux mint (and linux in general) but so far I love it. I'm used to windows, though, so forgive me if I ask silly windows-people questions. So far I'm only having a few issues...
I have an Acer Aspire 5750-6589 laptop and the touchpad doesn't have all the functionality that it should.
The vertical and horizontal scrolling does not work; I have to left click on the (surprisingly well-hidden) scroll bars and then drag up or down using both hands... not real fun.
The touchpad works fine otherwise.
I searched a bit and tried the "gpointing-device-settings" package... didn't seem to have any effect. It seemed like the ones who used that had bigger issues, like the touchpad not working at all.
is it a driver issue? If so how would I fix that?
I also saw something about editing the "grub" file... I did that and then rebooted but still no change (although it DID solve my screen brightness control problem!)
Any ideas how to fix this?
EDIT: I'm running Linux Mint 11
