Dell Inspiron 5559 TouchPad problems

xfce
touchpad

#1

Hello Everyone.

I have a Dell Inspiron 5559 with some random touchpad problems. I’m using Manjaro 18 Xfce with all the latest updates.

Problem #1: The touchpad on occasion only right clicks, no matter which side of the touchpad I click. A reboot fixes the problem, until it happens again.

Problem #2: The touchpad stops working and I can only navigate via keyboard only. A reboot fixes the problem, until it happens again.

What are my options here, if any?

If one of my options is using an external mouse, which brand and model do you recommend?

Thanks.

#2

AFAIK that should not have issues running arch, hence no issues with Manjaro. From terminal:
xinput -list
and we start from there.


#3

I run a Dell Inspiron too but later model. I’m puzzled and baffled by your issue because on my machine the only thing I had to do was edit the settings or config file to increase the speed of movement. I second what @bogdancovaciu said.


#4

Perhaps an rmmod then a modprobe of your touchpads modules would be enough to get it working properly without the need to reboot.

You could easily create an alias to execute the commands. Not a fix by any means, bit a workaround to avoid having to reboot.


#5

Agreed although I feel the need to add this is assuming OP has an external mouse to use via usb for when they run rmmod.


#6

If you concatenate the commands it should not be required.

Example:

sudo rmmod trackpad_module; sleep 2; sudo modprobe trackpad_module

The trackpads function should only be interrupted for 2 seconds by doing it that way.


#7

True assuming everything goes smoothly.


#8

A USB device is always a good thing to have when messing with your keyboard or trackpad modules. An onscreen keyboard program is a good idea as well.


#9

Thanks for your reply.

I ran the command xinput -list in terminal and it says command not found.


#10

Ran the command and got the following error:

rmmod: ERROR: Module trackpad_module is not currently loaded
modprobe: FATAL: Module trackpad_module not found in directory /lib/modules/4.19.20-1-MANJARO

#11

I don’t have any USB mice at the moment, nor any external USB devices connected.


#12

That was only meant to be an example. You need to substitute your actual module. You can find a list of your modules with the command:

lsmod

#13

ah, my bad. Thanks.

When I run lsmod, I see a psmouse and mousedev modules, but under Used by, is empty. The module libps2 and serio is Used by atkbd, psmouse:

#14

Then you install it:
sudo pacman -S xorg-xinput
and run xinput -list again


#15

Installed xorg-xinput and ran xinput -list.

xinput -list:

One thing that comes to mind is to do this from terminal:

sudo echo "blacklist i2c_hid" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

reboot.

Someone else proposed (elsewhere) a script to Enablel and Disable the Touchpad (same model AFAIK) touchpad_toggle.sh

#!/bin/bash

read TPdevice <<< $( xinput | sed -nre '/TouchPad/s/.*id=([0-9]*).*/\1/p' )
state=$( xinput list-props "$TPdevice" | grep "Device Enabled" | grep -o "[01]$" )

if [ "$state" -eq '1' ];then
    xinput --disable "$TPdevice" && notify-send -i emblem-nowrite "Touchpad" "Disabled"
else
    xinput --enable "$TPdevice" && notify-send -i input-touchpad "Touchpad" "Enabled"
fi

then
chmod +x touchpad_toggle.sh
to use it from terminal:
./touchpad_toggle.sh
You can bind key shortcuts to it so you don’t run it from terminal …


#17

Thank you.

I will try it out and report back in a couple of days.

Thanks again.
