Hello Ubuntu 12.10!!


Upgraded from 12.04 to 12.10 on Samsung Ultrabook Series 5. Can’t make my touchpad work… still fixing huhuhu

Update: I was able to make it work by doing these:

$ cd /usr/src/
$ sudo wget http://planet76.com/drivers/elantech/psmouse-elantech-v6.tar.bz2
$ sudo tar jxvf psmouse-elantech-v6.tar.bz2
$ sudo dkms add -m psmouse -v elantech-v6
$ sudo dkms build -m psmouse -v elantech-v6
$ sudo dkms install -m psmouse -v elantech-v6

My touchpad works after that. I followed the instructions from here but after updating the kernel to 3.6 and rebooting, my webcam and wireless doesnt work. So I load up the previous 3.5 kernel.

You will notice that on the system settings, the “touchpad” is grayed out. You have to install:

$ sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-core

… then multi-touch and touchpad settings will be back and working.
