@ Renato

Hi, Renato. In order to install the driver follow the steps bellow (as advised by quarara #212):

1) Extract psmouse-alps-dst-1.0.tbz in /usr/src/ sudo rights. Extracting it on the Downloads folder (right click the file -> Extract here) and moving it with the following command in the terminal also works:

sudo mv psmouse-alps-dst-1.0 /usr/src

ps: Note that the folder you need to move is inside 'usr/src/' folder that you extracted.

2) Go to /usr/src/ and then just give those commands in the terminal:
sudo dkms build psmouse/alps-dst-1.0
sudo dkms install psmouse/alps-dst-1.0
sudo rmmod psmouse && sudo modprobe -v psmouse

Good luck and let me know if it works for you!
