Touchpad
« on: 04. November 2015, 21:00:16 »
Hi there , congrats to everyone involved with this distro ! First time here so be gentle !
I have one of these laptops http://www.acer.co.uk/ac/en/GB/content/model/NX.MLFEK.002
.
This distro even recognised my Broadcom wireless card ootb, and that is a first !
There is a bit of a snag though, my touchpad does not function properly . When I right click (two fingers on the pad) only the workspace menu shows but not the main menu. If I connect a mouse to a usb port everything is aok.
I should mention this is running "live" .
If we can sort this out I will install properly and dump w 10 for ever.
