Touchpad not working on System 76 Oryx Pro

Post by gotesman » Mon Feb 04, 2019 2:31 am

Hi all

I installed Mint 18.3 64 bit on my System 76 Oryx Pro. The tochpad does not work. On this laptop, Fn+F1 is supposed to activate the touchpad but nothing seems to happen. Any suggestions?

Thanks

Do you have a USB mouse connected? If so, remove the mouse, reboot and see if the touchpad will work then.
or go here. viewtopic.php?t=281790

You might need to install the System76 driver.
