Comment 139 for bug 606238

For people having this issue, there is a (draft) driver for the new alps touchpad shipped with the latest DELL latitude series.

See http://<email address hidden>/msg00808.html

The driver is working on my e6530, and on the e6430.

you need to download hit git tree ( and compile the driver yourself :
cd drivers/input/mouse/
make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build M=`pwd` psmouse.ko
(as root) rmmod psmouse
(as root) insmod ./psmouse.ko
xinput list
