I got a new Dell lap top, and it worked fine for some time, but I think system update did something wrong to the mouse driver. The mouse is no longer showing.
I used to be able to fix it with:
sudo rmmod psmouse
sudo modprobe psmouse
Not working anymore.
What do I do?
I had that problem too when i bought dell with ubuntu 12.04 it is not a problem with laptop. It is the problem in ubuntu after updating or moving to other version. You can try out some commands:
sudo modprobe -r psmouse sudo modprobe psmouse proto=imps
but it will work only for that session to make it permanent, you should save a configuration file, like:
you name anything you want. and type
options psmouse proto=imps
It should work for you, if not please let me know.2. Method Install dconf editor
sudo apt-get install dconf-tools
and go to start menu, find it and open it.
Navigate to the path
org > gnome > settings-daemon > peripherals > touchpad
and tick the box :
