Touchpad problem in LM14

Postby joksim » Wed Mar 27, 2013 8:40 am

Hallo, newbee here!
I have:
CPU~Dual core Intel Core i3 CPU M 380 (-HT-MCP-) clocked at 931.000 Mhz Kernel~3.5.0-17-generic x86_64 Up~2:27 Mem~1140.6/3819.7MB HDD~320.1GB(21.1% used) Procs~160 Client~Shell inxi~1.8.4

the touchpad is not working properly... at the beginning of sessions it reacts great, but after time it becomes more harder to control it (freezing, delay). It is irratating! Sometimes it gets better, but the problem is still there... I am on the mercy of the pad :(
I don't know how to list the touchpad characteristics in terminal, but I think is synaptics pad.
Is there a problem with the driver, and if so how could I find the correct and how to install it? Assuming that is the problem!?

Tnx

I had problems with my pad (Thinkpad T42, synaptics touchpad, Mint 13). It's still a bit inaccurate, but getting an older driver helped quite a lot.
I'm using xserver-xorg-input-synaptics 1.5.99.902-0ubuntu.
The default version worked fine with Thinkpad T400, but was very "nervous" with T42.

"less /proc/bus/input/devices" gives:

Code: Select all
