I’m having an issue with my touchpad, I’m using a Toshiba satellite pro C50-A1E6, my touchpad will work and then randomly stop working after a reboot or two it’d go back to normal.
I’ll be more than happy to provide information with some guidance.
Before people point it out, i have checked out
Touchpad not working properly, or not at all - #6 by tununo but with no success
There were similar issue recently (probably just too new hardware), see this
I think i would try some of the other kernel parameters also such as
There are options to try
Unfortunately i don’t think it’s because it’s new as tis laptop is around 5-6 years old but still poping off with 8gb ram xD i paid £100 for it so im not expecting everything to, i thought it might be a loose connector opened the laptop up and it seemed to be perfectly fine
Still try this options one by one, issue looks very similar anyway
I looked at the Arch wiki for the Xiaomi Notebook Air and it say’s using xf86-input-evdev makes the touchpad act like a touchscreen so you might not want that. So maybe uninstall that and try the xorg file.
Identifier "libinput touchpad"
Option "Tapping" "on"
Option "ClickMethod" "clickf…
Don’t seem to have that installed i do however have these xf86-input-libinput xf86-input-synaptics xf86-video-intel
Update: touchpad started to work again however i know that it will 100% fail again
Doesn’t matter if it’s installed i think, just set one of those Kernel parameters (don’t froget to update grub + reboot), and see if it helps in a long run…if not try another option etc
I hate those issues when it’s random
Thought you’d say that, how exactly would i do that
i8042.reset - Not working, boots up touchpad works after logging in decides to give up on me
i8042.nopnp - So far so good, booted up logged in and still working i’ll keep this up to date
Thank you so much for the help it’s been 30ish minutes and that’s been the longest it’s gone without breaking ^^
