Re: Linux Mint 19.1 codenamed ‘Tessa’

Question about the future kernel used for 19.1? Would it still be the 4.15? I'm asking because I need the 4.17 for my touchpad to properly function. As for now it works only with limited function (no hard click only finger touch) and depending on which update of the 4.15. Like the 32 is ok but not t...

Hello Jerry,

It does indeed. No problem with the touch-screen. I have not tested the pen device.

How to ask for a new driver? [CLOSED]

Hello.

I have a laptop where no Linux distribution can find the driver for the touchpad. Is there a place where I can ask for this?
The laptop is almost 1 year old.
Thanks in advance for your answers!

Re: Touchpad not working [CLOSED]

A tad more info:

I tried Debian 9.4 and the same erratic behaviour appeared: the touchpad worked for some minutes (no right button though) and then after the first reboot, it stopped.
So patience is the key.

Hi thx-1138,

Thanks for a prompt response again.

I feared but expected it. Thanks for your knowledge in this. I'll wait for some updates in the future.

Re: Touchpad not working

Humble bump. I can't be the only one having that problem. Can someone experienced tell me if there is hope or is it pointless.
Any help is appreciated.

Re: [SOLVED] Touchpad not working

Installing the latest kernel (4.13.0-38-generic x86_64) seems to have partially fixed it. I can't select text, but at least it works. Marked as solved. Wrong.. my touchpad actually worked for some minutes while installing the last kernel. After a reboot, it's not working again. Does that give out s...

Re: 18.1 cinnamon lagging after some time of use.

An interesting test would be to check if your WIN7 would still lag today with the current heat wave. Nevertheless, if this reading from sensors is correct, you will have to do something about it. My CPU never goes higher than 55°C. The normal working temperature for an I3 2100 is between 50 and 62. ...

Re: 18.1 cinnamon lagging after some time of use.

Hello. 80°C is quite hot indeed. The most probable cause for this is dust in your machine that prevent your cooling system to properly work. Add this with summer time, and you have a winning combo for time traveling ticket to what computer were 15 years ago: slow. Because your CPU is very hot, your ...
