Touchpad Indicator not working on Ubuntu Mate 14.04

Asked by Richard Hiltbrunn on 2015-08-05

I've installed touchpad, but when I try to run it I get nothing but the mouse icon spinning for a few second then it quits.
Found the executable file for touchpad and ran it as sudo.

When I did I got an error message that showed the problem: "touchpad-indicator crashed with FileNotFoundError in open(): [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/home/richard/.config/touchpad-indicator/touchpad-indicator.conf'"

It's true that the file is not there. I did a search to see if the file was anywhere, but could not find it anywhere on the machine.

Is there any advise you can give in order to get touchpad working on my machine?


If you need a copy of the crash report, I can send that to you. Let me know.

I created a bug report for this because it affects me too:

It seems crashes only 1.0.5 version, I'm using older, 1.0.4 version without problems :)
working touchpad-indicator 1.0.4 can be installed from official Ubuntu-derivative Baltix repository:

Can you help with this problem?
