Touchpad not working on Acer Aspire One Cloudbook 11


Please check your BIOS settings to verify it is not running in Advanced mode. If it is, set it to Basic.

The problem was solved in my case after making that setting change. Press Ctrl+Fn+F7 and try again if it still does not work in case the soft switch is set to off.

    I can't seem to get the touchpad to work on 14.04 on my Acer Aspire One Cloudbook 11.

    A USB mouse works fine. I have 14.04 on a separate partition from Windows 10. I have updated all packages using sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get upgrade.

    I've also tried the many suggestions I've found from searches, including:

    sudo modprobe -r psmouse
    sudo modprobe psmouse proto=imps


    sudo modprobe -r psmouse
    sudo modprobe psmouse

    Neither seem to do anything. The touchpad has a toggle via Fn+F7, but the toggle doesn't seem to affect anything. Fn+F... works for muting and volume and other keys though.
