can't get this to work at all! I tried both the 11- and the suggested 99- location ( Gentoo wiki suggests that as well) but it seems like it isn' t even reading that file! Can I somehow tell if it ''is' ' actually reading it? --[[User: Svenstaro|Svenstaro]] 18:07, 2 July 2009 (EDT) |+|

The article says that kernel 3.3 fixed the detection of ALPS touchpads (among others). I am running kernel 3.6.10 and my ALPS touchpad was not detected until I installed psmouse-alps-driver from the AUR. Therefore I suggest to rewrite the paragraph accordingly to say: "Some touchpads (e.g. ALPS, ...) need additional drivers to work. Install package X for touchpad Y." Any opposing arguments?

I have been experiencing an issue where the cursor sometimes starts jumping around the screen when trying to use it (as if its sensitivity is all over the place) I can not recreate it since it's pretty random when it happens so I can not test if the suugested fix at https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Touchpad_Synaptics#Cursor_jump is for that or for another issue. In any case I have found a fix for it by doing 'sudo modprobe -r psmouse; sudo modprobe psmouse' to restart the mouse driver the thing is that I'm not sure whether I should add it to https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Touchpad_Synaptics#Cursor_jump or make a new subheading under https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Touchpad_Synaptics#Troubleshooting ?
- Just saw your post about this questions in the forums, so it worked. I had the same problem and found a solution by running "syndaemon -d -K" at start up. Basically it disables the touchpad on the fly while you are typing, re-enabled automatically after you stop pressing keys. There are other options to vary the disable time, but I find the default works well. I can't remember where I found it, forum thread maybe? Anyway I'd vote for adding a list of things to try to the cursor_jump section of wiki. Keep the suggestion there now as list item 1, add yours as list item 2, and add the syndaemon as list item 3 one if you want Ajbibb (talk) 19:52, 21 October 2013 (UTC)
