installed Ubuntu 11.10, Touch Pad now doesn't work

Asked by Peter Meakin on 2011-12-21

Installed Ubuntu 11.10 when the upgrade was offered. No issues with download or install but now my touch pad doesn't work. Have plugged in a wireless mouse and that is working. Touch Pad was working under 11.04 version.

Computer: Sony Vaio VGN-CR525E

Thanks

I suggest this go to F3 in this manner Fn then F3 and you should
be able to turn on mouse pad. It was added with 11:10
Hope this helps.

Don't know what happened, but next time I turned it on the touch pad was working and has continued to do so
