Touchpad+Keyboard support in Linux for 3000 Y500

2007-12-25, 18:10 PM
So I just started exploring my new Lenovo 3000 Y500 laptop pre-loaded with Windows Vista. After being something of a Linux explorer for a while, I decided to take the leap and install Ubuntu 7.10 on my machine only to realise on running the Live CD that my touchpad and keyboard do not work. Driver support problems? Is there a fix for this? Is there something I'm missing? Would it help if I switched to a different distribution?

Use a uSB keyboard and mouse and use the following command

sudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst

in it edit the kernel line to
title        Ubuntu 7.10, kernel 2.6.22-14-generic
root        (hd0,2)
kernel        /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.22-14-generic root=UUID=2946bc29-bb7c-466c-823e-86394c27eed3 ro quiet splash locale=fr_FR i8042.reset
initrd        /boot/initrd.img-2.6.22-14-generic
quiet

from
title        Ubuntu 7.10, kernel 2.6.22-14-generic
root        (hd0,2)
kernel        /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.22-14-generic root=UUID=2946bc29-bb7c-466c-823e-86394c27eed3 ro quiet splash
initrd        /boot/initrd.img-2.6.22-14-generic
quiet

Old thread, and there is a Linux section of the boards.

Maybe someone there can help?
