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

I'm having some problems. Running

sudo dkms autoinstall psmouse-alps-1.3-alt

does not work on my Dell 11z [1121]. I've made a different forum since this one is old: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php … 7#p1266407

It's been two days that I can't use my mouse and it's driving my productivity down.

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

What is psmouse-alps-1.3-alt? I use aur/psmouse-alps-driver.

That one is outdated and it redirects to another place, and within that someone posted on the 26th that what I have is the most updated driver.

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

you'll have to do this (you should create a PKGBUILD with a post_install for 2. and 3. and pre_remove with 5.)
1. extract psmouse-alps-1.3-alt to /
2. run dkms add psmouse/alps-1.3-alt
3. run dkms install psmouse/alps-1.3-alt
4. reboot

uninstall:
5. dkms remove psmouse/alps-1.3-alt --all
6. delete psmouse/alps-1.3-alt

6. delete psmouse/alps-1.3-alt

Did the following:

sudo mv psmouse-alps-1.3-alt.tbz /
cd /
sudo tar -xjf psmouse-alps-1.3alt.tbz
cd user
cd src
sudo dkms add psmouse/alps-1.3
sudo dkms install psmouse/alps-1.3

Edit: Restarted, uninstalled it, and Arceus told me there isn't an original module for this and the toggle to change the touchpad still doesn't work so I may be in the wrong thread. I also couldn't

sudo rm psmouse-alps-1.3

. It tells me "cannot remove 'psmouse-alps-1.3': Is a directory".

Edit: Problem solved in my personal forum.

Btw, I don't know how to do a PKGBUILD because I'm a noob at this so I'll leave that to one of you guys.

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

If you want to use it, don't uninstall it. That was just meant in case you want to remove it and use the original driver.

Use the psmouse-alps-driver package with these modifications:

source=($pkgname-$pkgver.tgz::http://www.dahetral.com/public-download/alps-psmouse-dlkm-for-3-2-and-3-5/at_download/file)
md5sums=(c826dd5b17ea20e521dc5fef1ab0bac7) #generate with 'makepkg -g'

# remove build() function

package() {
        cd "$srcdir/usr/src"
        install -d "$pkgdir/usr/src"
        cp -r * "$pkgdir/usr/src"
}

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

Hi there!. I'm using debian on a Vostro 3360 and couldn't get touchpad multitouch working. Tried alps without success. After some more research I get it working on using glidepoint.

Hi, may you be so kind to help me? What did you do to make this multi-touch work?
I've tried to substitute alps.c with the new one, but it didn't work for me, the package didn't compile with it at all. I tried this package  https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/psmouse-alps-driver/ to compile with alps.c it's not compiled too. I tried ti fix errors ( there was an error with undefined ALPS_PROTO_V6 , after I defined it  there was another one so I gave up)

So i installed last psmouse-alps-driver from aur  and "xinput list" shows AlpsPS/2 ALPS GlidePoint and PSmouse if I load the module without parameters. But touchpad doesn't work at all in that case. It only works with "modprobe -v psmouse proto=imps" but in that case  "xinput list" doesn't show AlpsPS/2 ALPS GlidePoint

I've solved this issue for my Dell Vostro 3360.

I've downloaded psmouse-alps-dst-0.4 from here: http://www.dahetral.com/public-download

Then I've downloaded alps.c from here: http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=m404GW1G

and replaced old alps.c with downloaded one.

The I've built this module via dkms and reloaded psmouse module. My touchpad now works as it should.

This module contains reverse-engineered ALPSv6 protocol, so it might help other guys with other laptops.

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

Hey guys,

since this seems to be the solution for everyone I came here as well big_smile I am trying that thing now with the 1.4 driver and get this error here:

[root@localhost psmouse-newest-1.3]# dkms autoinstall

Kernel preparation unnecessary for this kernel.  Skipping...

Building module:
cleaning build area...
make KERNELRELEASE=3.16.6-200.fc20.x86_64 -C /lib/modules/3.16.6-200.fc20.x86_64/build M=/var/lib/dkms/psmouse/alps-1.3/build/src psmouse.ko...(bad exit status: 2)
Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 3.16.6-200.fc20.x86_64 (x86_64)
Consult /var/lib/dkms/psmouse/alps-1.3/build/make.log for more information.

According to this article here - which i followed - I have to create a symbolic link but that does not solve it hmm This happens with the original alps.c and the alternate alps.c. And as you may have seen I am on Fedora and not Arch Linux but I just hope this is not too much of a problem in this case.

Any ideas?

Edit:

Now after trying out Arch (via Antergos) I installed this package here without probs but I still have no touchpad configuration in the settings. Two finger scrolling worked right after getting into Arch but I still miss those multitouch gestures hmm

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

sorry to come back to this thread - but it describes my problems just perfectly.
i kept following it ever since i got my acer aspire v5-573g half a year ago.

i followed each and every possible solution but nothing seems to fix it. i installed every dkms package, tried all the patches, changed the alps.c file and lastly i even edited alps.c to contain the unique identifier dmesg throws at me.

my touchpad keeps being recognized as ps/2 generic mouse - which renders my notebook pretty much useless.
has anyone had more luck with this notebook?
