    Default Touchpad disabled on T61p (opensuse 11)

    The problem is like this:
    The touchpad works well in the login screen, but it won't work after you log in to the system. Well, I would say it is partially disabled because the button still works and I may also use the right area to scroll, but I failed to use the track function. However, the track point and my mouse works well. I am really confused about this.
    Of course I tried to enable the touchpad in the control panel, and I also tried to configure the xorg.conf, and adding the touch pad as a new device, but it does not work either.

    The following is a part of my xorg.conf:

    InputDevices "/dev/gpmdata"
    InputDevices "/dev/input/mice"

    Section "InputDevice"
    Driver "synaptics"
    Identifier "Mouse[1]"
    Option "Buttons" "5"
    Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
    Option "Emulate3Buttons" "on"
    Option "HorizScrollDelta" "0"
    Option "InputFashion" "Mouse"
    Option "Name" "Synaptics;Touchpad"
    Option "Protocol" "explorerps/2"
    Option "SHMConfig" "on"
    Option "Vendor" "Sysp"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
    EndSection

    Section "InputDevice"
    Driver "mouse"
    Identifier "Mouse[3]"
    Option "Buttons" "5"
    Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
    Option "EmulateWheel" "on"
    Option "EmulateWheelButton" "2"
    Option "InputFashion" "Mouse"
    Option "Name" "IBM;TPPS/2 TrackPoint"
    Option "Protocol" "explorerps/2"
    Option "Vendor" "Sysp"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
    EndSection


    Anyone has any idea about how to solve this problem?
    Thanks a lot!

    I had the exact some problem on a T61p. It ended up being a problem with the driver on my nvidia card (I know, random, but that's what it was). Make sure your video card driver is up to date.

    Hey!

    I have the same problem on ASUS A9T laptop... Touchpad stopped working - maybe I did sth because I fiddled around with settings a bit, dunno... Buttons and slide function works, just can't move the cursor. USB mice works just fine. Everything is on in Control Center and Yast.

    Help appreciated!
