Touchpad not working

Hi all, I installed 18.04 and I love it…there’s just one problem: my laptop’s touchpad isn’t working at all! It’s an Elantech touchpad. Nothing seems to be able to find it to begin with, xinput doesn’t show it for example. Can you help me? Thanks!

Hi and welcome,

generally we try to help with Ubuntu Budgie specific issues here. This sounds more like a generic Ubuntu Issue. I have had a quick google and one or two mentions of 18.04 Elantech touchpad issues but I didn’t see any specific help resolving.

I would recommend you ask this question on / - both sites deal with Ubuntu issues in general and probably can help with this (hopefully).

Okay, I’ll try asking in one of those places. Thanks :slight_smile:
