Lenovo Thinkpad and Synaptics Touchpad

Post by edilpali »

Good morning.
In my RDS enviroment, we are introducing some laptops.
System does'nt recognize the touchpad (Synaptics) meanwhile it recognizes the Elan Trackpoint.
It could be that there's no driver?
It's possible to introduce it?
I attach the log file.

It is possible to add driver if we know which one to add. There are too many chips and drivers...

1. Please try the latest wtware version and show me the same log. It should dump some more information about input devices.

2. If some other linux works with this touchpad, run:

Code: Select all

sudo dmesg > /tmp/1.txt
And show me 1.txt file

PS: "extra=WTFW_i915_adlp_dmc_ver2_16.bin.zip" does not work for firmware. Write "firmware=WTFW_i915_adlp_dmc_ver2_16.bin.zip" instead of extra=

I've done the update.
I set up all the firmwares needed.
I send the new log.

I don't have a linux installation working, but if I could make a setup to find a path.
Is there a preferred version? Ubuntu?

I've done the setup of the Debian 12.
Without installing all the system, I got the log of the bootstrap.
I send it in attachments.

Ubuntu, yes.

Also, why are you sure there is Synaptics touchpad? Recognized the Elan Trackpoint does not work, no reaction at touchpad?

PS: physical display mode is "display=1920x1200". With "display=1600x900" image on screen becomes smooth. Perhaps, those two lines will make fonts large enough with clear picture:

Code: Select all

display=1920x1200
scale_factor = 125

Trackpoint works, and also the buttons left/right of the touchpad.
On another identical laptop there's a Windows 11 OS. It recognized the touchpad as a synaptics

IT WORKS!! the pad respondes.
But the movement is very slowly. For each total-pad move, it moves on the screen about 1 cm

1. Write into config:

Code: Select all

mouse_accel_mult=16
2. Show me log after reboot and some movements.

I set the parameter "mouse_accel_mult=16".
But now, the other mouse I attached and the trackpoint are gone crazy.
I send the current log.

Please try 6.2.30 version from https://wtware.com

Now it should understand:

Code: Select all

mouse_accel_mult=touch:12
For touchpad only, not for mouse.

I put on the new version and all works well.
I deleted the mouse_accel_mult parameter. It's works fine.
Thankyou very much!!! You're the best!
