"sudo modprobe -r psmouse" completely disable the touchpad, I don't think that's what Adam wants.
Once you've applied the kernel patches (which are now part of the latest kernel, 2.6.34), it should be detected as a touchpad. Then, in gnome, mouse preferences, touchpad tab, you just have to select "disable touchpad while typing". It actually runs syndaemon. If that doesn't work (there is no touchpad tab), make sure the synaptics X driver is loaded (but that should be the default). -- Can't configure Elan tech touchpad on Dell Inspiron 11z, Asus K7I0C and maybe also Dell Mini 10 (not V), Asus k40in, Asus U81A, Asus UL80-VT, and Asus N61Jq. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/512192 You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Bugs, which is subscribed to Ubuntu. -- ubuntu-bugs mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-bugs
