    Default emulate3buttons and alpsv7 pad

    I have installed 13.2rc1 on a new Toshiba laptop, which has an accupoint stick and a pointer pad which seems to be a ALPSv7
    I have two significant problems

    1: having only 2 physical mouse buttons I need emulate3buttons to be on, but it does not work

    2: netsearches suggest thst I need the psmouse-dkms-alpsv7 module with kernel 3.13, but the instructions to build it fail -- says there is an error, and points to a log file that shows no errors. see below


    Idealy I would like the pad switched off and button emulation on the accupoint. Any suggestion as how to proceed most welcome.

    Toshiba Protege z30-A; fvwm2 on X11; no Gnome or KDE or similar

    as root "modprobe psmouse" ???
    then
    "lsmod" to see if it's there

    modprobe/lsmod shows there isno psmouse.ko file

    I have found that there is revised version of the psmouse/alpsv7 code but that also does not build.

    Also see a report that the 3.17 kernel has this fixed.

    Humm... not sure what to do

    try: modprobe /pathtowhereyoudidthebuild/psmouse.ko

    or

    Update all your kernel installs, desktop, base, syms, etc., from the kernel stable repo
    http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...able/standard/
    Note: probably won't work on uefi + secure boot system ATM

    I'm running kernel-desktop-3.17.1-3.1.gd944251.x86_64.rpm
    and, the update kept my previous kernel install too

    or

    Wait for 13.2 as I expect it to have kernel-desktop-3.16.6-2.1
    which you could try from
    http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...13.2/standard/ repo

    Good luck

    Not so. I did not get that on my laptop, and I realized that I have the Kernel stable repo active on my desktop, but, I did get get a kernel update FWIW.

    I still would not try it on an UEFI + secure boot system ATM.
