HP Probook touchpad problem
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 23, 2012
I'm starting this thread because I have some problems with ubuntu 11.10 x64 on my HP Probook 4530s laptop. Among this problems is problem with touchpad, this is one of the main problems, so that's why i doing that.
I asked about that on askubuntu, ubuntu-ru, LOR (professional russian forum about linux), superuser, etc. but problem is still not solved.
When I bought my laptop (about 2.5 months ago) SLED (Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop) was installed on it. And on that system everything was ok: discrete graphics worked good as well as touchpad and others.
Then I decided to install ubuntu 11.10 x64 and windows 7 (dualboot). After that i booted up in ubuntu. First of all the fans worked very loudly and temperature was on cpu etc was pretty big (about 52 C) even if i didn't do anything. Then I realized that the problem is in my discrete video card (Radeon HD 6490M) and I turned off it (I thought at that moment: "First I will fix other problems and only then I'll fix problems w
Touchpad problem HP Pavilion dv6
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 18, 2010
I am using ubuntu 10.04 on a HP Pavilion dv6 laptop.
I am facing an issue with my touchpad.
It is a synaptics touchpad with multitouch support.
The touchpad buttons are integrated into the touchpad (i.e the buttons are themselves touchsensitive)
When I use two fingers the mouse pointer jumps on the screen erratically.
This prevents me from using drag and drop, selecting and copying etc.
Please help me either to enable multitouch support or atleast disable the bottom 1/4 th of the touch pad.

Hello again, since my last problems with SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 11 SP4 I decided to try Oracle Linux 6.4 x86_64. Everything good except that I thought the driver installation will be the same. But when I`m trying to install my wireless driver:
Touchpad problem: cursor jumps (Ubuntu 12.10, 64bits)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 26, 2012
I have this annoying touchpad problem: I move the pointer with the touchpad. Then, at the end of the movement (i.e. when I release contact with the trackpad) the pointer makes a small jump on the screen of random magnitude and direction.
This makes the laptop very hard to use since I have to aim 2 or 3 times before it lands on the right place where I want to click. As a result I very often click on the wrong place!
I have a new HP Pavilion dv7 triple-boot with Ubuntu 12.10 (64bit), Windows 7, Linux Mint 13 (MATE, 64bit). It has a SynPS/2 Synaptics Touchpad.
Booting with Windows 7 does not show this issue, indicating to me that the touchpad H/W is ok.
Mint 13 does show the same problem, as wel as Fedora booted from a live USB, leading me to conclude that this is a Linux-distro (driver?) problem.
Incidentally, using a separate mouse works completely fine.
I have searched in Linux forums, in particular this one, but I cannot find a solution. Any help would be we
HP Probook Hacked WiFi set ON
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 1, 2013
Greetings good persons,
I work from an HP Probook 4730s.
The default system is Windows 7.
I access Ubuntu from a "system chooser".
In the BIOS I have disabled the Wifi capability to the best of my knowledge.
As I start Ubuntu and before I log into any user my Wifi capability is switched on.
The hacker proceeds to read anything I write and to download any files in the directory I may access.
How may I disable the vulnerability of this HP Probook 4730s to exclude the hacker?
All the best,

I facing with very annoying problem, mean it overheating! I have installed Jupiter and CPU Freq scaling indicator and this will drop down temps apropx 2-3°C.
However, the temperatures are still high! The highest temperature point I've seen was 75 degrees, which is only 10 degrees less then a critical level (85°C).
Even now, after two hours of browsing Web CPU temp is very high.
I have HP Proobok 4530s with Intel HD 3000 graphics integrated card and i3 processor. I'm working on Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit. Today I updated kernel to 3.2.24-030224-generic with no changes. Fan is always running and laptop is very hot. It simply impossible to work. Touching the laptop is like touching a heater!
Of course laptop is clean and work flawlessly on Widows 7 (never experienced an overheating problem). I'd like to stay on Ubuntu, but I cant get rid of the heating.
I've been reading a hundreds of post regarding overheating problems. Installed Laptop-Mode-Tools, modifie
Ubuntu HP laptop Overheating problem solved
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 18, 2008
I dont know if ther is any active thread but i'd like to tell that i solved HP (CQ 6820) overheating problem.
I found that many users have this problem.
I tried to lower ati power state trough aticonfig. But that didn't work. Well laptop is not old and the temperatures of cores were about 45-50 degrees in Win Vista.
Before mod the temperatures of cores were about 60 degrees with no active programs running.
So I moded a configuration file in /etc/modules. I added these lines:
Then I installed tool kpowersave, enabled it at startup and set dynamic processor usage.
The result was temperature about 44-48 degrees which is even lower then in Vista.
(my new issue now is blinkink screen of opengl application in dekstop mode.)
Asus touchpad problem
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 2, 2014
So my touchpad on my laptop (Asus x551ca) is not working as it should be.
In the settings I have only the mouse options and not for the touchpad.
And it is also missing some features like scrolling (it's just a basic point and click nothing more).
So xinput list returns me this:
Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)]
⎜ ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer id=4 [slave pointer (2)]
⎜ ↳ PS/2 Elantech Touchpad id=12 [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)]
↳ Video Bus id=7 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ Sleep Button id=8 [slave keyboard (3)]

This is my 1st time trying Linux--I am a beginner, however I did search the forums for an answer but most of what I've found so far is a bit over my head.
I am converting over from Windows and am fairly good at resolving hardware & software conflicts in it (I am good with navigating menus but not experienced in using command line interfaces, such as 'Terminal').
That being said, I realize Linux is not Windows and am here to learn, so I can use Ubuntu (or some other version of Linux) myself and to help others after I've gained experience. I hope to get enough experience to help everyone I know to eventually use some version of Linux--it is free after all!
Installed Lucid Lynx on a 5 year old Panasonic laptop and all hardware is recognized, however the touchpad is very slow regardless of the System/Preferences/Mouse Preferences settings (Pointer speed's Acceleration and Sensitivity are both set to maximum).
I found a forum post stating "installing GSyna
