Comment 97 for bug 565543

I'm stuck with an Acer TimelineX 3828TG notebook with a poorly functioning touchpad identified as ImPS/2 by the kernel, therefore no touchpad tab in the mouse properties in gnome. Vertical scrolling only works downward and no sign of horizontal scrolling.

I emailed the ALPS R&D team just to illuminate the problem and make sure they are aware of it and got the following response:

"Currently ALPS hasn't supported Linux driver yet.
However we starterd investigation to solve the matter that you have pointed
out."

Even though i don't have too high expectations of having this issue solved anytime soon, at least there was some reaction on their side... Would be really nice if they did like broadcom and spent some extra resources on linux, never too late to get in the game.
