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.


Is that the same code if I use the higher Ubuntu version? 台北當鋪

Great post full of useful tips! My site is fairly new and I am also having a hard time getting my readers to leave comments. Analytics shows they are coming to the site but I have a feeling “nobody wants to be first”. selections from sleepjunkie

Nice Article

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
