[Fedora-17] ALPS touchpad recognized incorrectly as PS/2 generic mouse
Last modified: 2012-07-06 12:07:44 EDT
Description of problem:
Currently I'm using a DELL Inspiron 15R N5110 with Alps GlidePoint Touchpad. The touch pad only does clicking (left & right) and move around. No multi-touch/scrolling.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
3.3.7-1.fc17.x86_64 (updates-testing repo)
Try scrolling vertically/horizontally without making use of the scrollbars.
clicking (left & right) and move around only
should have scrolling vertically/horizontally

Do let me know if you need further information.
Is this still happening in the 3.4.x kernel updates?
I've updates-testing repo enabled and currently, my F17 is at kernel version: 3.4.4-3.fc17.x86_64 but in the "Mouse and Touchpad" settings, I still don't have the options to configure multitouch stuff. So, yes, it's still happening in the 3.4.x kernel updates.
Is only the multitouch functionality missing? So normal "mouse" operation works, including side and horizontal scrolling?
