Touchpad wont work acer c720..
« on: November 12, 2015, 12:51:53 pm »
So i just followed one of the submitted tutorials on how to install Peppermint on the acer c720, the installation and everything worked fine except the touchpad. I did install the latest kernel.

But the touchpad still wouldnt work for me. Im kinda confused when i look at everyone else that the touchpad works out of the box for :(

Hi aegishjalmur, and welcome to the forum :)

What's the output from:
Code: [Select]
xinput --list

Hi aegishjalmur, and welcome to the forum :)

What's the output from:
Code: [Select]
xinput --list

Code: [Select]
⎡ Virtual core pointer                    	id=2	[master pointer  (3)]
⎜   ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer              id=4 [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ SteelSeries Rival Gaming Mouse          id=14 [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ SteelSeries Rival Gaming Mouse          id=15 [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎣ Virtual core keyboard                    id=3 [master keyboard (2)]
    ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard              id=5 [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Power Button                            id=6 [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Video Bus                                id=7 [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Power Button                            id=8 [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Sleep Button                            id=9 [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Sleep Button                            id=10 [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ HD WebCam                                id=11 [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard            id=12 [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ SteelSeries Rival Gaming Mouse          id=13 [slave  keyboard (3)]

I guess its the virtual core pointer, sorry if i slam a easy copy and paste from the terminal hehe.

No it's not the virtual pointer .. in fact it doesn't appear to be being detected at all  :-\

How did you install the later kernel ?

and can you post the output from:
Code: [Select]
uname -a
and
Code: [Select]
lsmod
