Elantech Touchpad on Lucid (10.04.4)

Post by isrodrigues » 11/09/2012, 4:02


I have a samsung rv411-ad1br, it's works great with the samsung tools, but the only bump is the touchpad, elantech, which is not even detected as a touchpad, just a simply mouse. the scrolling doesn't even work, neither when I use psmouse proto=imps.

I know the touchpad is capable of multi-touch, but I don't really need just the scrolling, can anyone help me with this?

There are steps to follow for elantech:

Code: Select all

cd /usr/src/
sudo dkms remove psmouse/elantech-v6 --all
sudo wget http://www.ouam.fr/~madko/ubuntu/elantech/psmouse-elantech-v7.tar.bz2 
sudo tar jxvf psmouse-elantech-v7.tar.bz2 
sudo dkms add -m psmouse -v elantech-v7
sudo dkms build -m psmouse -v elantech-v7 
sudo dkms install -m psmouse -v elantech-v7
sudo reboot
After reboot go into your settings and select multitouch.
