Re: Alps touchpad as PS/2 Generic mouse

roneyfraga: I'm having the same problem. My xinput list gives:

⎡ Virtual core pointer                    	id=2	[master pointer  (3)]
⎜   ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer              	id=4	[slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ ImPS/2 Elantech Wheel Mouse             	id=12	[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)]
    ↳ Laptop_Integrated_Webcam_2HDM           	id=10	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard            	id=11	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Dell WMI hotkeys                        	id=13	[slave  keyboard (3)]

while psmouse-elantech installed. Interesting is that there's elantech PS/2 mouse listed, instead of PS/2 listed before.
I have Dell XPS 15z laptop, latest official (3.4.2-2) kernel and Gnome.
The touchpad works, even right side scrolling, but I can't change the options via 10-synaptics.conf (and I would like to add some multitouch gestures and so on, mainly two finger scroll). SInce I use Gnome setting the touchpad would be easy via gnome menu, but since the touchpad is recognized as mouse I don't see the touchpad menu in Mouse and touchpad subsection.
I would appreciate any help I can get.

Re: Alps touchpad as PS/2 Generic mouse

Every time after updating your kernel:
 >  1. reboot your system
 >  2. run /usr/sbin/psmouse-elantech-build to build new
 >     module for running kernel
 >
 > Alternatively add 'psmouse-elantech' to your DAEMONS array in
 > /etc/rc.conf to recompile every time needed.

Re: Alps touchpad as PS/2 Generic mouse

I managed to install psmouse-elantech package, but no success getting touchpad to work. 'xinput list' gives

 Virtual core pointer                    	id=2	[master pointer  (3)]
    Virtual core XTEST pointer              	id=4	[slave  pointer  (2)]
    USB Optical Mouse                       	id=12	[slave  pointer  (2)]
    PS/2 Elantech Mouse                     	id=14	[slave  pointer  (2)]
 Virtual core keyboard                   	id=3	[master keyboard (2)]
     Virtual core XTEST keyboard             	id=5	[slave  keyboard (3)]

     Video Bus                               	id=7	[slave  keyboard (3)]
     Video Bus                               	id=8	[slave  keyboard (3)]
     Power Button                            	id=9	[slave  keyboard (3)]
     Sleep Button                            	id=10	[slave  keyboard (3)]

     AT Translated Set 2 keyboard            	id=13	[slave  keyboard (3)]
     Dell WMI hotkeys                        	id=15	[slave  keyboard (3)]

I'm using GNOME-SHELL, and when I enter Mouse and Touchpad settings, I only see the Mouse section. Is there something else that needs to be done so that the touchpad section will become available?

Re: Alps touchpad as PS/2 Generic mouse

Is this thread still alive or already dead?

I have a Dell Inspiron 14R Turbo (SE7420), It has an ALPS touchpad but it is detected as PS/2 Generic Mouse.

None of the modules above is useful.

dmesg:

[   15.091344] input: PS/2 Generic Mouse as /devices/platform/i8042/serio1/input/input9

xinput list:

⎡ Virtual core pointer                          id=2    [master pointer  (3)]
⎜   ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer                id=4    [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ Microsoft Microsoft® Nano Transceiver v2.0        id=11   [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ Microsoft Microsoft® Nano Transceiver v2.0        id=12   [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ PS/2 Generic 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)]
    ↳ Microsoft Microsoft® Nano Transceiver v2.0        id=10   [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Integrated Webcam                         id=13   [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard              id=14   [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Dell WMI hotkeys                          id=16   [slave  keyboard (3)]


EDIT:

Installing psmouse-alps-driver in AUR solved the problem!

Re: Alps touchpad as PS/2 Generic mouse

Hey,

Sorry to revive this old thread. I ran into the same problem with the touchpad on a Toshiba R30-A-13C.

The solution was described at the very bottom of: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/To … d_as_mouse

Follow the instructions @ https://github.com/he1per/psmouse-dkms-alpsv7
to compile the very latest touchpad drivers.

only after doing that does my touchpad work properly big_smile

Best,

Andy

Re: Alps touchpad as PS/2 Generic mouse

UmbraMalison, thank you for providing a solution. This thread is old and its highly unlikely that the op is still looking for answers.

I will close this thread now...
