Re: Switch ThinkPad Yoga Clickpad with new TrackPad

2015-08-09, 17:39 PM

Sadly, just found a bug in the old driver when running on windows 10. Scrolling using the trackpoint doesn't work on the start menu. So when you need to find an app at the bottom, you'll have to manually pull the scroll bar down.

 

Since we're stuck with this driver, it's going to be a perpetual bug.

 

Edit: It's not just the start menu, but all tile-based apps in general (ie. news, weather, control panel, etc)

I may have found a solution to the windows 10 Synaptics driver problem. 

 

At first I uninstall the Synaptics driver and the pointer and 3 buttons work but I couldn't get the 2 finger scroll or pinch zoo to work.

 

When I installed the n10gx25w driver, the 3 clickpad buttons stopped working but I could do 2 finger scrolling.  I then tried rolling back the driver to previous, and voila the pointer, 3 click buttons, pinch zoom and 2 finger scrolling all worked!

Just found out that the windows 10 automatic update keeps installing the latest synaptics driver which disables the 3 buttons.  I have looked into the link in the previous posting on how to disable Windows 10 automatic updates.  Does anyone know if there is a way to single out only the synaptics driver to not update and let the other updates go through?

Yes, you can block just the one update.

Re: Switch ThinkPad Yoga Clickpad with new TrackPad

My "only" problem is that I cannot use the middle button for scrolling in e.g. browsers etc..

This is working under the "normal" windows surface, but doesn't work under Opera, Edge, Foxit etc...

When I press it down it shows that able to scroll, but don't move :(

 

Is there any known solution for this problem?

 

Many thanks!

Just wanted to point out that changing the device driver installation settings didn't help at all. Windows update still continued to download and install the updated driver. It's really frustrating.

Re: Switch ThinkPad Yoga Clickpad with new TrackPad

My level of frustration continues to grow on this... Running Windows 10 Pro on a (2014 Thinkpad Yoga 14), and If I load the Synaptics driver from either Lenovo or Windows Update it borks the track point entirely. So much so that the UltraNav settings in mouse control panel don't see a trackpoint installed (it's all greyed out) Uninstalling the Synaptics driver (and reverting to PS/2 generic Microsoft driver) will give me TrackPoint functionality back, but then the Trackpad then no longer works. Also kind of weird is that the Ultranav doesn't show a track pad with buttons, but click zones... Yuck.

Also Windows update would continually reinstall the Synaptics driver.... Even after I told Windows 10 not to do driver updates... ARGH! Finally found a hot fix from Microsoft for Windows 10 that allows you to block an update.

I have tried also getting the Synapics driver directly from them, however it just gives me an error when it tries to install. I'm pretty sure it's not an ALPS track pad, as nothing sees it as such. So frustrating... I can only have one mouse or the other. I prefer TrackPoint, but it's nice to have the pad now and again. 

My middle button works only sometimes.... Yeah... pretty ticked about this

Re: Switch ThinkPad Yoga Clickpad with new TrackPad

HA! Thinkpad_20 earlier post was the key!

What you need:
- Yoga 14 Synaptic Drivers (jfgc09ww)
- Intel Chipset Drivers

1. Uninstall Existing Synaptic Drivers and Reboot
2. Install Intel Chipset Drivers
3. Unpack the Synaptic Yoga 14 drivers, but elect not to install.
4. In Device Manager, select PS/2 Compatible Mouse, Update Driver
5. Select Allow me to choose from a List
6. Select Have Disk. Browse to the x64 folder where your Synaptic Drivers unpacked.
7. Select UltraNav Pointing Device
8. Reboot

For some reason the Synaptic SMBus Driver included with jfgc09ww isn't fully compatible with the new trackpad. This may be corrected in a future driver release. The Intel Chipset Drivers installs a compatible SMBus driver, which seems to allow normal communication to the new trackpad.

Originally, I was working with the Synaptics SMBus driver, but the best I could get was legacy function w/o multi-touch. I used this setup for a while; however, the Charms bar started driving me just as crazy as not having physical trackpoint buttons. I kept farting with it until the Trackpad was working 100% and could disable gestures.


So it's all about getting the Intel Chipset driver installed once you uninstall the Synaptics drivers, when the SM_Bus Controller is showing as missing a driver. Intel Driver has to be first, then Synaptics.
