That’s works for me…
UPDATE (14 August 2010)
After upgrade kernel from version 2.6.32-24-generic to 2.6.35-15-generic, I found something in gpointing-device-settings (
sudo apt-get install gpointing-device-settings). Look at this screenshot
At least my touchpad is detected as a “touchpad” now. 🙂
How to upgrade kernel?
I just follow instructions from here What is the best way to upgrade the Linux Kernel?
After upgrade kernel, system can detect Fn+F9. Try it with xev (from terminal, just type
xev). But, I still can’t disable/enable touchpad when press Fn+F9 with original script. So, edit /etc/acpi/asus-touchpad.sh
sudo gedit /etc/acpi/asus-touchpad.sh
And replaces with this
#!/bin/sh [ -f /usr/share/acpi-support/power-funcs ] || exit 0 . /usr/share/acpi-support/power-funcs getXconsole if xinput list-props "ETPS/2 Elantech Touchpad" | grep "Device Enabled" | grep 0 then xinput set-prop "ETPS/2 Elantech Touchpad" "Device Enabled" 1 else xinput set-prop "ETPS/2 Elantech Touchpad" "Device Enabled" 0 fi
Save and done.
