I have a ultrabook and its touchpad doesn't work.
Linux mike 3.16.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.16.7-ckt25-1 (2016-03-06) x86_64 GNU/Linux
touchpad doesn't work and it is also not listed in output of following command.
touchpad model :
"Sentelic Finger Sensing Pad Driver"
so I typed following command
according to these information when I type following command
I see following output :
appletouch.ko bcm5974.ko cyapa.ko psmouse.ko sermouse.ko synaptics_i2c.ko synaptics_usb.ko vsxxxaa.ko
so as a result I thought I should recompile psmouse module which supports sentelic touchpad. I look around the internet, I get the linux repository.
I checked the tag
I went into
drivers/input/mouse and I see following files
alps.c appletouch.c cyapa.c elantech.c hgpk.c Kconfig logibm.c Makefile pc110pad.c pxa930_trkball.c sentelic.h synaptics.h touchkit_ps2.c trackpoint.h alps.h atarimouse.c cypress_ps2.c elantech.h hgpk.h lifebook.c logips2pp.c maplemouse.c psmouse-base.c rpcmouse.c sermouse.c synaptics_i2c.c touchkit_ps2.h vsxxxaa.c amimouse.c bcm5974.c cypress_ps2.h gpio_mouse.c inport.c lifebook.h logips2pp.h navpoint.c psmouse.h sentelic.c synaptics.c synaptics_usb.c trackpoint.c
sentelic.c files also there is a Makefile but when I hit enter the command
make it says
make: *** No targets. Stop.
my question is how could I compile
psmouse module with the
sentelic touchpad support.
I get following information from windows driver's
; Localizable Strings Provider = "Sentelic" DiskId1 = "Finger Sensing Pad Driver Installation Disk" AVC.DeviceDesc = "Finger Sensing Pad" AVC.DriverDisplayName = "Finger Sensing Pad Driver" AVC.DriverDisplayVersion = "188.8.131.52" AVC.DriverReleaseDate = "05/09/2012" AVC.DriverCfg = " " fspad.SvcDesc = "Finger Sensing Pad Driver for Windows 2000/XP/Vista/Win7" fspadsvr.SvcDesc = "Finger Sensing Control Service"
UPDATED 2 :
I tried following Live USBs and the result is same :
proc/bus/input/devices not much different than details that I gave above. There is no touchpad thing.

Is this a absolute kernel bug ? How could I be sure whether is this a bug or there is another solution, so according to that result I'm going to file a bug.
