• Touchpad doesn't work on Deepin


    Hi guys!
    I have ASUS x540 laptop. Installed fresh Antergos Deepin. But suddenly, my touchpad doesn’t work. I’ve never had this problem with this touchpad and any Linux distro.

    Please, help me fix this problem!
    Thank you!

    Edit: gestures(pinch and drag) work perfectly; I can switch between workspaces and such using the touchpad. It is only the cursor that doesn’t move(actually it moves slightly if you start moving your finger a lot).
    Also tried using a mouse and it works perfectly.

  • Strange… I am using a touchpad right now to write this, and it’s working perfectly. However, after a little searching online, it appears to be a common problem (no matter what DE you are using) when using NVIDIA. Is this the case, or are you just using integrated graphics?

    Thanks!

    Keep trying, never give up. In the end, you will find that it was all worth it

    Thank you for replying.
    I use integrated Intel graphics. The whole thing is very strange and unexplained to me.
    One more thing - when the system was launching for the first time after the installation display manager showed an error. There was a problem with the theme and the options were: ‘Load default theme’, ‘Load Fallback theme’, ‘Cancel’.
    I think I chose cancel.

    PS. By the way, are you the guy who brought Deepin to Antergos?

    Hmmm… that is strange. I’ll have to search the web for something that can hopefully help.

    Well, the good thing is that is an error in itself:smile:. That message should not show up, but it actually means nothing! It thinks it finds an error, but in reality, there is none. I honestly have no idea why it even shows up at all, but the good thing is is that it does not mean that your system is in any way harmed or at risk. Everything is actually running as normal. No matter what option you pick when that message shows up, it will always allow you to just continue on your merry way as if nothing had happened. So no worries there>grinning:.

    PS. By the way, are you the guy who brought Deepin to Antergos?

    Yep! I’m him. Is there anything you would like to see in future releases? Feedback, even if a little harsh, is always welcome.

    Thanks!

    Well, just wanted to say I am really grateful for you for doing this. I just had this thought in my mind and you made it real.

    Now, there are many things to improve in this desktop implementation. For examle, the problem of this thread, some applications are not visible in the Launcher. This are the things that I encountered but they were enough for me to use Linux Deepin instead of Antergos at this moment. But I will try it out from time to time and as soon as these problenms are gone and there are no new ones, I am fully in.

    Big thanks once again!

    By the way, is there any help you might need with maintaining the distro? I am not a very experienced user but if there’s something I could do I will gladly help.

    hehehe… same with me! It was just a thought, but combined with almost no experience and not a single bash command memorized, I somehow managed to pull it off:smile:. (It took me over a month of working on it almost every day, so I’m just as surprised I actually did it as you are to have Deepin on Antergos!)

    Which ultimately leads me directly into your next comment:

    Any help would be amazing! And no worries about inexperience or limited knowledge:grinning:. As I mentioned above, I have neither experience nor much linuxfu skills at my disposal (although you may be glad to hear I finally figured out the cp and rm commands…). So basically, your help, no matter how small, would be appreciated more than you can know. I’ll send you a message in a minute going more into detail about that:slight_smile:.

    Yep. That one seems to be happening for certain people, although it appears random. For some reason, custom made applications seem to not be visible, but ones installed from Pamac are. However, I have recently located the source of the issue… sort of. The blame appears to fall solely in the hands of the menu feature in Deepin, as other custom menus will display the disappearing programs. How to fix this, now that is another matter entirely!
