Touchpad fix (Kubuntu 8.10)

After I upgraded to Kubuntu 8.10, the touchpad was no longer functioning, and the tips suggested elsewhere on forums did not help. Eventually I found the problem. It is a program called mouseemu which made the device unusable (busy) in X. The error reported in /var/log/Xorg.0.log was:

(WW) Synaptics Touchpad can't grab event device, errno=16


The solution is to deinstall mouseemu.

Also note that all touchpad definitions should be removed or commented out in /etc/X11/xorg.conf or else the scroll regions will not work. Configuring is now done using HAL.

I have used a number of variations of Linux like Ubuntu, Edubuntu etc. but never tried this yet. Ubuntu till 11.04 was good for parallel installing with windows but the latest version don’t support this feature which is a big drawback. fernet
