Comment 39 for bug 565543

I have the same issue; hp mini311-1000. The OS (Ubuntu 10.04.1, latest kernel patches as of 2010.08.01) thinks my touchpad is a PS/2 mouse. It's devilishly hard to type on it as a result.

xinput --list
⎡ Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)]
⎜ ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer id=4 [slave pointer (2)]
⎜ ↳ ImPS/2 Generic Wheel Mouse id=12 [slave pointer (2)]
⎜ ↳ Macintosh mouse button emulation id=13 [slave pointer (2)]

cat /proc/bus/input/devices

Attachment for xorg.log attached. Hope this helps, so I do.
