Linux touchpad issue

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello .

I installed ubuntu the other day, working great. Got KDE running A-OK.

What's been bothering me is this:

There is an area of my touchpad that is designed as a "scroll" area. The problem is, when I tap the scroll area, it clicks. It never did this in windows...I havn't the faintest idea of how to fix it...hopefully I can get help...

Thanks!

It might need an updated driver. Not sure where to find it or what it's called (it depends on you laptop) Or ubuntu just might not support. I always disabled it anyway... It seems to get in the way more then help... Just my opinion though.

Yes, it does scroll. Lemme get a picture.



Sorry for the quality, but the green is linux scroll area, red is windows.


Ok, that (above) is the 2nd problem.

The entire scroll area is "clickable" - meaning, if I tap it lightly, it clicks.

Have a look at the Ubuntu Hardware and Laptop Forms... Try searching for your particular lappy or pointing device... I was lucky.... my Toshiba just worked...

Good Luck!!

There has got to be a way to toggle this in xorg.conf... Would z-mapping (or whatever that was called) have anything to do with this function?

My sister also had Linux on her laptop, and the touchpad was a pain in the ass.
