    Default nSpire 2410, Ubuntu 11.04

    Hi

    I got my new nSpire 2410 and installed Ubuntu 11.04.

    The trackpad does not work very well... there is no side scrolling and it does not deactivate while typing.

    This is the output of xinput list:

    Code:
    ⎡ Virtual core pointer                    	id=2	[master pointer  (3)]
    ⎜   ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer              	id=4	[slave  pointer  (2)]
    ⎜   ↳ FSPPS/2 Sentelic FingerSensingPad       	id=11	[slave  pointer  (2)]
    ⎣ Virtual core keyboard                   	id=3	[master keyboard (2)]
        ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard             	id=5	[slave  keyboard (3)]
        ↳ Power Button                            	id=6	[slave  keyboard (3)]
        ↳ Video Bus                               	id=7	[slave  keyboard (3)]
        ↳ Sleep Button                            	id=8	[slave  keyboard (3)]
        ↳ USB2.0 UVC 1.3M Webcam                  	id=9	[slave  keyboard (3)]
        ↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard            	id=10	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    So it's a Sentelic touchpad.

    I downloaded fspc from the SourceForge Linux Finger Sensing Touchpad project but it does nothing.

    Can anyone help?

    thanks

    You would be much better off asking on the ubuntu forms as this is really an ubuntu specific issue and the guys over there will be better equipped to help you. Funnily enough I get more trackpad features on my x65 running archlinux then with windows 7.

    Yes, maybe, but so far I am drawing a blank other than using mouseemu as a workaround.

    Posted on here in the hope that someone else fixed it

    thanks for the response.

    thanks for the response.
    Have you tried with a more recent kernel and/or X server ?
    There's the mainline kernel PPA and xorg-edgers PPA for just such a reason...
