Keyboard and touch pad not detected

hello people,
REcently i hav installed opensuse 11.2. now it does nt detect the laptop keyboard and touchpad…but it detects a usb keyboard and mouse…
Hw do i rectify it?

What brand/model?

Do you mean an external usb keyboard, or do you mean the keyboard is detected as an USB keyboard? The latest could be true, some laptops have the keyboard connected throught USB on the motherboard.

A lot of the latest touchpads are detected as a mouse (mine is)…

Do they work or not at all?

Well i have a dell vostro 1510… nd i mean the laptop’s keyboard is not detected …but when i attatch an external usb keyboard and an external mouse they worked…

Well i collected this data from yast → hardqware info
for keyboard
HID keyboard device(/dev/input/event3)
At translated set2 keyboard(/dev/imput/event0)
…there was no entry for mouse or touchpad…

Look in the output of:


Something like:

lshal | grep -5 touchpad
