12.04 LTS Beta 2, xorg touchpad input not registering.
|||Xserver Xorg Input Synaptics||
The last time I used a Debian based linux was in 2002 so things have changed but this has me stumped.
I'm obviously using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Beta 2.
Hardware is an ASUS Zenbook UX31.
When I boot with my Logitech unified keyboard and mouse and go to X the input from both keyboards show up in X. However only the wireless mouse movement shows up in X.
Checking /dev/input the wireless mouse is on /dev/input/mouse0 and /dev/input/mice. I can see activity from the touchpad using /dev/input/mice and /dev/input/mouse1. I was surprised as I would have thought the onboard touchpad would have registered first.
When I last used X I was used to editing xorg.conf but I see this has all been abstracted. So I've found the xinput command in the hope this sheds some light.
david@Iapetus:~$ xinput list
⎡ Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)]
⎜ ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer id=4 [slave pointer (2)]
⎜ ↳ Logitech Unifying Device. Wireless PID:4007 id=9 [slave pointer (2)]
⎜ ↳ Logitech Unifying Device. Wireless PID:4004 id=10 [slave pointer (2)]
⎜ ↳ ETPS/2 Elantech Touchpad id=14 [slave pointer (2)]
⎣ Virtual core keyboard id=3 [master keyboard (2)]
↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard id=5 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ Video Bus id=6 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ Power Button id=7 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ Sleep Button id=8 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ USB2.0 VGA Webcam id=11 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ Asus WMI hotkeys id=12 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard id=13 [slave keyboard (3)]
This is probably an X11 configuration/
If you want me to try anything let me know. This is a new install and can be blown away without any angst at this time.
I believe this to be a bug as multiple keyboards and input devices are supported by X11 and I certainly had it working in Debian in 2002 and Gentoo in 2004 and FreeBSD in 2006.
