touchpad not working on acer aspire 5536 ?

hello i have just installed opensuse kde but my touchpad does not work and i have to use a mouse which is not ideal,has anyone got an idea on how to fix the problem please in idiot proof explanation ?
thank you.

I guess opensuse 11.3 has a default touch pad setting which disables the clicks by tapping on a touch pad. If it is so, you can enable by going to —Personal Settings…>Keyboard & Mouse–>Touch pad—> Tapping (or other options as well) and changing the settings according to your requirements.

Thank you very much!!
it is working, i thought it was a problem with the drivers… :wink:

ok thank you very much.
