Re: Alps Touchpad detected as PS2 Generic mouse on Dell Inspiron N5110 15R

The solution proposed post-factum - modification of psmouse-alps module - works also for my Dell inspiron 17R SE.

With the original file the touchpad of it was also recognized as a PS2 mouse.

@post-factum: thanks a lot!

Re: Alps Touchpad detected as PS2 Generic mouse on Dell Inspiron N5110 15R

post-factum,

Thank you so much for your google-guru skillz. I'm gonna type an email to the patch author after this.

This is confirmed working by me on Acer Aspire-V3 771G-9875.

Edge scrolling, accel, etc. All working. AND NO MORE FREAKING TAP TO CLICK!

Sorry for caps. Seriously, thanks again. <3

Re: Alps Touchpad detected as PS2 Generic mouse on Dell Inspiron N5110 15R

Yes, that should be psmouse.ko. Could you try to build this module without dkms?

Re: Alps Touchpad detected as PS2 Generic mouse on Dell Inspiron N5110 15R

First I would like to thank post-factum for finding the solution!
I had the same problem like mateus.luv. I tried to add a module as suggested, however it returned an error. I also tried compiling without dkms with same results. I was using Fedora, kernel version 3.6.3 (same kernel version as mateus.luv's). Touchpad was broken in every distribution I tried, including ubuntu 12.10 (kernel 3.5), although I was able to fix it there, so I guess the kernel version 3.6 is causing problems. I compiled a custom 3.5 linux kernel with a fixed driver, for Fedora and that solved the problem.

I know I am not using Arch linux, but I hope compiling a fixed 3.5 kernel works for you too smile
I can provide any other details if necessery.

Works for me on my Aspire V3-771G. Used the 1.1 package and the alternative alps.c posted earlier.

Re: Alps Touchpad detected as PS2 Generic mouse on Dell Inspiron N5110 15R

Doesn't work on Dell E6230 (not the patched 0.4, not the 1.1)

How can I restore the original psmouse module? When I ran dkms remove psmouse/alps-dst-0.4 dkms reports there's no substitute.

Touchpad stopped working.

Re: Alps Touchpad detected as PS2 Generic mouse on Dell Inspiron N5110 15R

I've followed the exact steps posted on this topic on my Dell precision m4700. xinput list shows the following:
Virtual core pointer                        id=2    [master pointer  (3)]
⎜   ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer                  id=4    [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ Logitech USB Receiver                       id=11    [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ DualPoint Stick                             id=14    [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ AlpsPS/2 ALPS DualPoint TouchPad            id=15    [slave  pointer  (2)]

So my touchpad is loaded as Alps, but nothing is working at all, not even basic moving features. I have xf86-input-synaptics installed as well. Before these steps my touchpad was working (except horizontal, vertical scrolling). Please advise.

I installed dkms-alx, but i am not sure what to do now. What I get with that.

Every time when i update system, my touchpad stop working, then i have made script and i just run her after update.

#!/bin/bash
sudo dkms add psmouse/alps-dst-0.4
sudo dkms autoinstall
sudo rmmod psmouse && sudo modprobe psmouse

and now how to modify this scrip with this dkms-alx, if you understand what i am asking? smile

Re: Alps Touchpad detected as PS2 Generic mouse on Dell Inspiron N5110 15R

Probably you should purge psmouse folder from /var/lib/dkms.
