Description Ivan Baidakou 2010-08-21 07:27:20 UTC
My touchpad is recognized as PS/2 mouse, not as Synaptics device, as it should. 

The same problem is described here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/565543

Comment 1 Dmitry Torokhov 2010-08-23 16:08:13 UTC
Is the touchpad really Synaptics and not ALPS, Elantech, FSP and so forth? What driver does the other OS uses for it? Also, was tere a kernel that detected the touchpad properly or was it always broken?
Comment 2 Josh Smith 2010-09-22 02:06:46 UTC

If I see another tpconfig output I am gonna scream... The utility does not work.

Please boot with "i8042.debug" on the kernel command line and provide full dmesg. Thanks.

dmesg output with i8042.debug option
Comment 7 Dmitry Torokhov 2010-09-22 18:20:23 UTC
_Full_ dmesg, please. I need to see the device initialization phase, not only you working your touchpad/typing. Probably if you boot into text console you will be able to capture more? Also try adding log_buf_len=131072 to the kernel command line.
