Asked by Claudio on 2012-10-31

Hello people... This is my big problem... I have an Acer Aspire 5738 with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. Before I enter to my session the touchpad works good. But, when I start my session it does not works anymore. The on/off button does not works too. Can you help me, guys?

This save me:

This is a way to create a file that fixed my Aspire One, so I'm sharing it:

1 Open the Terminal
2 cd /etc/modprobe.d/
3 gksudo gedit options.conf
4 In the text editor, type: options psmouse proto=imps
5 Save the file and close it.
6 sudo modprobe -r psmouse
7 sudo modprobe psmouse

Sharing is sweet. You can also do it by running:

echo "options psmouse proto=imps" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/options.conf > /dev/null
sudo modprobe -r psmouse
sudo modprobe psmouse

:)
