How to activate touchpad in Tinycorelinux 13.0
« on: March 06, 2022, 04:38:28 AM »
My laptop touchpad is not working. I am using Tinycorelinux 13.0 on a UEFI only 64-bit laptop booted from USB.

xinput --list shows two entries- "Intel HID events" and "Intel HID 5 button array" which I feel are related to the touchpad. I enabled both of them using xinput --enable deviceID.

From other related posts on the forum, I installed Xorg-7.7, hidapi, libinput, xf86-input-libinput, libevdev and python3.7. I am attaching both xinput --list and extensions screenshot.

I also tried installing xf86-input-synaptics from https://tinycorelinux.net/12.x/x86/tcz/xf86-input-synaptics. That did not help. Plus, that appears to be a 32-bit extension. I couldnt find it in the 64-bit repo.

Kindly suggest how I can activate the touchpad.

The xf86-input-libinput driver loaded by Xorg-7.7 should work with your touchpad - the xf86-input-synaptics driver from 12.x will not work in 13.x due to the update to xorg-server.

Did you look at /var/log/Xorg.0.log to see if your touchpad is recognised?

I uninstalled xf86-input-synaptics (12.x).

The xf86-input-libinput driver is already installed. However, the touchpad does not work. Does any other command need to be used to activate the touchpad ?

I checked /var/log/Xorg.0.log. Its a longish file with lot of detail. However, I am attaching an extract from the Xorg.0.log which appears towards the end appears to be related to the touchpad. From the log entries, I feel the touchpad is recognized.

Pl see and confirm.

Hi tcl_user5
Run the following command:
Code: [Select]
lsmod > lsmod.txtOpen the file  lsmod.txt  and paste the contents between code tags. Click the button with the  #  symbol on it for
code tags.

Run this command:
Code: [Select]
dmesg > dmesg.txtInclude the  dmesg.txt  file as an attachment.

FYI: maybe will help other users, because Synaptics driver is missing in TC13.
I had a great success, on TC13_64, using xf86-input-synaptics.tcz (from TC12_64), for my laptop, even if my "Synaptic" touch-pad is basically a click-pad (no visible detached buttons). In my case, now I can have BOTH vertical scroll (two-fingers AND right-edge), instead of only each of them configurable at one time.
PS: do not forget to look inside 70-synaptics.conf to change the MatchInputDriver options etc.

Hi tcl_user5
The  lsmod  command shows the driver (intel_hid) being loaded.

Looking at your dmesg result makes me think there may be something wrong with how you installed Tinycore:
Code: [Select]
[    0.000000] Linux version 5.15.10-tinycore64 (tc@box) (gcc (GCC) 11.2.0, GNU ld (GNU Binutils) 2.37) #622 SMP Tue Dec 21 17:30:32 UTC 2021

There is no  tce  boot code. It looks like you changed a  cde  boot code to  tce.
I'm not sure if it's unhappy about the  BOOT_IMAGE  or what it is pointing to.

I don't think I've ever seen this before:

Re: How to activate touchpad in Tinycorelinux 13.0

Hello Rich and Juanito,

(1) After checking with another distro on the same laptop in which the Touchpad works perfecly, I see that the Touchpad is not recognized in TinyCoreLinux 13.0.  I am attaching the screenshot of xinput in which the touchpad is seen with id=11. The device is ALPS0001:01 0911:5288 Touchpad. (I had earlier incorrectly mentioned that the Touchpad is recognized since I had co-related it with the wrong device ID)

(2) This device is not seen in the xinput --list in TinyCoreLinux 13.0
Code: [Select]
⎡ Virtual core pointer                    id=2 [master pointer  (3)]
⎜   ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer              id=4 [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ PixArt USB Optical Mouse                id=7 [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎣ Virtual core keyboard                    id=3 [master keyboard (2)]
    ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard              id=5 [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Power Button                            id=6 [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Intel HID 5 button array                id=9 [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Intel HID events                        id=8 [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard            id=10 [slave  keyboard (3)]

(3) I have loaded libinput and xf86-input-libinput. Are there any other drivers that I need to load for ALPS0001:01 0911:5288 Touchpad ? Is there any specific sequence in which libinput and xf86-input-libinput are to be loaded ? I have loaded them in the sequence of >Xfbdev > flwm > libinput > xf86-input-libinput > Xorg-7.7. (I am asking this since I was facing a problem earlier in using wifi extension which was due to installing wifi first and firmware subsequently which got solved by using the right sequence !)

(4) I am attaching dmesg and lsmod outputs for reference.  Earlier, as pointed out by Rich, I had installed Tinycore through a Porteus mashup. Now, I have reinstalled Tinycore 13.0 (64 bit) on HDD using grub-multi extension of Tinycore.

lsmod output is as follows:-

There's no particular order to loading Xorg extensions - loading Xorg-7.7 and then "startx" should be enough.

What does "sudo libinput list-devices" give?

For example"
Code: [Select]
...
Device:           AlpsPS/2 ALPS GlidePoint
Kernel:           /dev/input/event7
Group:            8
Seat:             seat0, default
Size:             95x44mm
Capabilities:     pointer
Tap-to-click:     disabled
Tap-and-drag:     enabled
Tap drag lock:    disabled
Left-handed:      disabled

Does "cat /proc/bus/input/devices" show the touchpad?

Maybe you could try booting without the "PixArt USB Optical Mouse" plugged in?

If that doesn't work, it might be a kernel problem.

Hi tcl_user5
... After checking with another distro on the same laptop in which the Touchpad works perfecly, ...
Please attach a  dmesg.txt  from that distro.

Quote
... I have loaded them in the sequence of >Xfbdev > flwm > libinput > xf86-input-libinput > Xorg-7.7. ...
Don't load  Xfbdev , you are using  Xorg.
Don't load  libinput  or  xf86-input-libinput , Xorg loads them automatically.

Quote
... Now, I have reinstalled Tinycore 13.0 (64 bit) on HDD using grub-multi extension of Tinycore. ...
Please attach a copy of your  grub.cfg  file.

(1) dmesg.txt of the other distro in which touchpad is working is attached.

Don't load  libinput  or  xf86-input-libinput , Xorg loads them automatically.
(2) This time, I loaded only Xorg. I did not load Xfbdev, libinput or xf86-input-libinput
