I have ubuntu 12.04 on 6430u. Touch Pad Not good.

I tried the solution from the webpage http://nwoki.wordpress.com/2012/10/02/multitouch-fix-for-alps-touchpad/ but at the moment to run dkms autoinstall I got the following error:

ERROR (dkms apport): binary package for psmouse: alps-1.3 not found
Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 3.5.0-23-generic (x86_64)
Consult /var/lib/dkms/psmouse/alps-1.3/build/make.log for more information.
Does anybody know how to fix it???

When you say “Touch Pad Not good.”
Do you mean that you can't use it to push cursor around, or do you mean you can push cursor around but you can't use touch pad for the special functions like (click and scroll)?

jorge barrera, 2013/09/22 17:55

the problem is with the scrolling which does not work. The function for scrolling is not available in the system settings neither.
