[Resolved] Tamil Nadu Free Laptop Touchpad not works or not Detected

Recently got a chance to have a hands-on at the two of the Tamil Nadu government’s offered free laptop to the students which came along with dual boot operating system “BOSS Linux” and ” Microsoft Windows 7 Starter Edition “.

When booted into BOSS Linux, the Touchpad / Trackpad in both two of the Laptops which we had a hands-on was not working and was also not deteced. So the Synaptics touchpad driver needed for the Touchpad / Trackpad to work was not present by default, so if you have found laptops with this problem try downloading Synaptics touchpad driver and double click it to install it. Since BOSS Linux is built based on the Debian operating system, the file which you have downloaded is a deb file.

In one of the two laptops, Trackpad is not working in Windows too. If you ever find any TN Laptop with Trackpad not working under BOSS Linux install the above Driver and it should work. If it doesn’t works even after that please drop your comments, we would help you to work it on.

Please comment only if you encounter problem in GNU/Linux. We do not undertake any queries regarding Windows as we are here to help Linux Users.
