Synaptics Touchpad Lock Key Block Keyboard HP Pavilion DV9000 Series

Asked by Fernando Iguibejeres on 2010-07-23

Hi, i have an HP Pavilion DV 9000 Series (dv9820us) and have Ubuntu 10.04 64 bits.

My Synaptics Touchpad works fine but when i press the lock key (locate in the top of the touchpad) the keyboard doesn't response, only Ctrl+Alt+Del show the menu to shutdown, logout, hibernate or restart

The only way that i found to get the keyboard again is kill Server X.

could any help me ??

i have 3 days googling about this issue and nothing fix that

i am having the same issue with a dv9930us

I found this, but haven't had a chance to try it yet.

gksu gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf

go to

Section “InputDevice”

Identifier “Synaptics Touchpad”

Driver “synaptics”

and ensure in this line you have only “auto” and not “auto-dev”

Option “Protocol” “auto”

save and restart Xserver (or simply reboot).

sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Scroll down to the “Synaptic Touchpad” section and add the following line:

Option "SHMConfig" "true"

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "Synaptics Touchpad"
    Driver "synaptics"
    Option "SendCoreEvents" "true"
    Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
    Option "Protocol" "auto"
    Option "HorizScrollDelta" "0"
    Option "SHMConfig" "true"
