    Re: HP Mini 210 touchpad right click not working

    You're much better off actually fixing the problem with the driver, as telling the system that the touchpad is a PS/2 mouse leaves you with zero control of the pad on the Mini 210. To do this, download the attachment at the bottom of this post and save it in your home folder:

    Open the terminal on your Mini 210 and

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install build-essential patch linux-source
    The kernel source will be a tarball that is installed in /usr/src. Extract it to your home directory like so:

    Code:
    tar -xjvf /usr/src/linux-source <tab>
    Note that pressing tab will autocomplete to the version you downloaded. Once extracted, change to the source directory and untar the patch attachment you downloaded at the beginning:

    Code:
    cd linux-source <tab>
    tar -xzvf ../clickpad.tar.gz
    Now we'll patch the driver files, copy the Makefile to the right place, and compile and install the new driver:

    Code:
    patch -p1 <clickpad_patch
    cp Makefile drivers/input/mouse/
    cd drivers/input/mouse
    make
    sudo make install
    Reboot your machine, and you'll find the touchpad works like it should. Note that this patch is based on Takashi Iwai's fine work here: http://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/67335/

    MsKK, make sure you remove the psmouse.modprobe and do a reboot.
    Mine fully working now. Just cannot 2-fingers scroll and pinch to zoom.

    What I meant was that the psmouse.modprobe change left my mouse just like it is now: right and left click working but no 2-finger scrolling, so I don't see any difference between the psmouse fix vs. the clickpad.tar.gz patch fix.

    i see.
    because mine previously if using the psmouse.modprobe, the vertical scrolling not working. So i left no choice but to use the clickpad.tar.gz

    I removed the psmouse change, rebooted, and used the clickpad patch, but i still cannot scroll.

    To the person who said it fixed the scroll... did u do any additional steps? do u also have a hp mini 210?

    Yes, HP Mini 210, followed the instructions religiously
    Buttons work, as does the vertical scroll on the right hand edge.

    Re: HP Mini 210 touchpad right click not working

    I've tried the clickpad.tar.gz, the result is; as in it's name, it activates the two clickpad at the bottom, shut down the touch function at the clickpad area (so the cursor won't go crazy when being clicked), and the good news is the edge scrolling function still working.

    But this patch didn't enable the multi touch function, when we press with one finger, and then add a pressure with another finger, the cursor still going crazy to the corner

    *still waiting for another tricks to enable the multi touch.

    Anyway, the clickpad patch is very useful, this is so much better than default, thanks for the trick
