Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 428429
Touchpad fails to work in X
Last modified: 2008-04-02 18:46:01 EDT
Description of problem:
This machine (Toshiba Tecra A7 SP2022) has both the nipple in between keys and a
touchpad. I normally use an external USB mouse, but the not working of the
touchpad is annoying all the same.
The nipple works in X and on a text console, the touchpad works only in text
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to use touchpad as mouse under X
Mouse pointer movement

Latest Xorg log
Due to a bug handling fonts I axed /etc/X11/xorg.conf, and then the Touchpad
works! But the nipple and the USB mouse don't :-(
This might be similar to bug #427099, or at least related to detecting/using
multiple mouse pointer devices. Could you please provide the information as
requested below? Thanks!

let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug
/var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.

Requested log (no xorg.conf)
xorg-x11-server-Xorg-126.96.36.1990-0.28.20080304.fc9.i386 right now.
And yes, I've got several mice (nipple, touchpad, USB mouse).
This worked briefly, now it is broken again...
