Laptop touchpad issue on Linux

I installed Linux (Ubuntu 16.4 LTS) on my new laptop, Fujitsu E series, all went well apart from touchpad which did not work at all. I spend few hours searching (AKA Googling) but could not find any hope. That was embarrassing for me who called himself professional Linux user but cannot fix touchpad issue, what about typical Linux user? there must be way, so I kept searching and reading until finally I found the fix and all is working now. Here is the fix if anyone has similar issue:

In cammed line, run:
sudo modprobe -r psmouse

It should work fine for now but only for current session, it may not work after restarting your laptop, so to add permanent fix, do:sudo vim /etc/modprobe.d/psmouse.conf

And add following, then save and exit.

options psmouse proto=imps


I used vim, you can use your favourite text editor such as gedit, vi etc. I hope this helps someone and save their time. Read more on modprobe.


Thank you for reading this, as always happy to hear from you.

When I heard that Prestashop introduced Symfony into their application I was really happy to hear that because it definitely boost Prestashop. I know this because I have many years experience with Symfony as well as Prestashop, even these days on daily basis I work with Prestashop and Magento.

Here I don’t want to compare Prestashop with Magneto (I will do in another post) but I can tell you from my experience that Prestashop is lacking from good robust infrastructure such as Symfony.

Why Prestashop is good with Symfony? I will answer in coming post but before this just to let you know that for now, Prestashop used Symfony in some parts of application not 100%, only in back-office although there is a plan to slowly use in front-office too.

I know some develope…
