[Solved] Touchpad recognized as Logitech Wheel Mouse

I am trying to get my touchpad working on an Acer Aspire TimelineX AS4830T-6642 but the touchpad is being recognized as a "Logitech Wheel Mouse".

I am unsure if the laptop is using an Elantech or Synaptics touchpad as it only seems to see the touchpad as a regular pointer. I have attached output that I think could be relevant. Let me know if anything else would be helpful.

Dmesg Output

Re: [Solved] Touchpad recognized as Logitech Wheel Mouse

I have found a kernel patch at https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=27442 that is suppose to fix the problem. Can anyone help guide me on patching the Arch kernel? I have installed ABS and created a build directory. Need some help with the pkgbuild though.

Re: [Solved] Touchpad recognized as Logitech Wheel Mouse

Post the pkgbuild so we can see what in is giving you trouble. smile

Doesn't the wiki address building a kernel with ABS?


I'm torn apart between worlds. Basically, using vim in a highly visual environment with a lot of mouse features feels like soldering a lose wire to a motherboard with a Zippo and a needle, while working with ANY TEXT AT ALL with a "modern GUI" text editor feels like joining the London Philharmonic Orchestra with a Fisher-Price Laugh and Learn Magical Musical Mirror.  --Awebb
