Progress - drivers/input/mouse/alps.c

enable DEBUG, reports on probing:
Feb  9 21:29:05 atrium kernel: [18446744060.802712] alps.c: E6 report: 00 00 64
Feb  9 21:29:05 atrium kernel: [18446744060.843237] alps.c: E7 report: 73 02 64

patching as a first guess with alps00.patch makes alps driver recognize the 
touchpad,
registers two input devices
- AlpsPS/2 ALPS GlidePoint
- PS/2 Mouse

unfortunately, only plain PS/2 events on the latter arrive, tested with "xinput 
test".

Sent request to ALPS:
I intend to update the linux driver for ALPS Glidepoint devices to support the 
recent
touchpads as the one built into the Sony VAIO VPCF115FM. To an "E7" information
request, it reports as 73-02-64 (hex). Could you provide me details on the PS/2
protocol used by that device such that I can implement specific support in the 
linux
kernel driver? Currently, the touchpad is only supported as a plain PS/2 mouse 
which
leaves much of its functionality and its settings unused.

any progress on this issue?

I bought a vaio VPCF11S1E these days and I have the same issues with the 
touchpad.
Strange enough, ubuntu seems to have released a fix in
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/545307 but things still do 
not
work on my machine (the kernel version matches though)

After upgrading the kernel I can see a touchpad tab in mouse settings, but the 
touchpad isn't actually configurable regardless of what is selected on that tab.

And even worse, with the old kernel I had edge scrolling just of the box, but 
with the 
new one it is gone, no matter if I enable or disable it on settings tab.

I confirm the very same behavior as described by shandyba on my VPCF11C5E with 
Lucid
Beta1 (kernel 2.6.32-19-generic-pae).

The issue's still not fixed, but it looks like some kernel versions of lucid 
bring 
edge scrolling back again. I didn't try these kernels though (and didn't find 
them in 
a quick search):

I third that. I keep trying to scroll to no avail lol... It's frustrating. 
Other than 
that, (and of course hibernation/suspend not working) lucid lynx seems to work 
very 
well.

I *wish* hibernate and suspend worked. Actually, they work just fine, It's just 
that
you never get the display back after resuming.

If you want at least a working horizontal scrolling under Lucid, you have to 
upgrade
the kernel: http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v2.6.34-lucid/

an easy workaround to have vertical scrolling back is the following:

add the following to */etc/modprobe.d/psmouse.conf*

<snip>
options psmouse proto=imps
</snip>

Wow, brilliant, vertical scrolling working perfectly again, thanks!
Horizontal scrolling isn't as important to me, I think I'll just wait until 
kernel
2.6.34 makes it into the official release.

In the last comment (n. 13) I wrote that with the new kernel 2.6.34 you can 
have a
working "horizontal" scrolling, but unfortunately it is not true. It just 
enables
vertical scrolling, I wasn't pay attention while I was writing...
Sorry!

Excellent, many thanks @andre.dietisheim and @Treenaks from #ubuntu-uk IRC who
pointed me to this thread. I was ready to send back my new Sony PVCEC1S1E ... 
Now the
vertical scrolling works, and I never cared for two-finger or horizontal 
scrolling to
be honest.

This is driving me crazy because there's no way to disable the touchpad while 
typing
such as 'syndaemon -td' So I keep making mistakes typing by accidentally 
touching the
touchpad.

I want to disable the touchpad completely and just use a mouse, but I can't 
figure
out how to do this in Ubuntu. Any help would be appreciated!

ok, in reply to above I figured it out myself. sudo rmmod psmouse does the trick
nicely when I need to type something and not worry about the touchpad. I hope 
this
issue gets sorted out in the future though.

I have the new Vaio F12 and found that the touchpad did not work at all out of 
the box under Fedora 13. After a lot of searching I found that adding 
"i8042.nopnp" to the kernel parameters restored functionality to the touchpad.

Can anyone with the F11 verify that ESC201's fix works? Does it enable all of 
the touchpad's features and alpspointer controls?

I own a VPCF11C5E. Touchpad had basic functionalities working out of the box 
since the first installation of Fedora 13, although wrongly recognised as PS/2 
Wheelmouse as the Issue title specifies. 
Using the parameter "i8042.nopnp" didn't change anything. Touchpad still has 
only basic functionalities (no horizontal scrolling, no circular scrolling, no 
multifinger) and it is still recognised as PS/2 Wheelmouse

Inspired by falconnnnpunch, I wrote a small script to toggle the touchpad. I 
hope it will be useful for others, too.

It seems people with Vaio F12 series laptops are suffering from problems. I 
myself have a VPC-F12S1E and I believe the sister models VPC-F12M1E and 
VPC-F12Z1E should be very similar.

In order to get events from the mouse, the following line needs to be added to 
/etc/default/grub:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="i8042.nopnp"

Don't ask me why, as I don't know the answer.

Although a bit off-topic in this particular bug, I have also attached a 
document which covers various issues with Vaio F12 laptops and Ubuntu Lucid. 
Hopefully it will be useful for users of other distributions as well. I give my 
full permission to do whatever you want to do with it.

Any ideas how to get 2 finger scrolling working?
With the i8042.nopnp fix, I think it acts like a normal mouse rather than a 
real touchpad.

Just want to add the kernel bugzilla report:

https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=14660

It should be the primary place for things related to this bug instead of 
launchpad etc.

Installing 11.04 and then running xinput has given me a new core pointer (vs 
post 40):


⎡ Virtual core pointer                        id=2    [master pointer  (3)]

Edge scrolling is there.. multitouch I've not managed to get working... yet.  
Maybe I was a little quick to say "All working as it should".. apologies for 
that.

I just upgraded to Ubuntu 11.10 x64 and updated Kernel to 3.0.6. Now there is 
no tab for a touchpad at all in system settings, and this is what I get from 
xinput:


⎡ Virtual core pointer                        id=2    [master pointer  (3)]
⎜   ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer                id=4    [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ Logitech USB Receiver                     id=10   [slave  pointer  (2)]

⎣ Virtual core keyboard                       id=3    [master keyboard (2)]

    ↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard                id=12   [slave  keyboard (3)]

Any solutions, guys?

Do you still have "options psmouse proto=imps" somewhere in your
modules settings?

Finally got the touchpad of Sony Vaio VPCF120FL working as supposed to with 
Ubuntu 11.10 x64 and kernel 3.1.1, compiled with patch from:
    http://www.absence.it/vaio-acpi/source/patches/vaio-full-3.0.4.patch
and according to instructions in this blog post:
    http://duopetalflower.blogspot.com/2011/10/custom-64-bit-ubuntu-kernel-31.html
Also needed to install psmouse driver from:
    http://people.canonical.com/~sforshee/alps-touchpad/psmouse-alps-0.10/psmouse-alps-dkms_0.10_all.deb

This is what I get now from xinput:

⎡ Virtual core pointer                        id=2    [master pointer  (3)]
⎜   ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer                id=4    [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ PS/2 Mouse                                id=11   [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ AlpsPS/2 ALPS GlidePoint                  id=12   [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ VGP-BMS33                                 id=13   [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎣ Virtual core keyboard                       id=3    [master keyboard (2)]
    ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard                 id=5    [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Sony Vaio Keys                              id=6    [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Video Bus                                   id=7    [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Power Button                                id=8    [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ UVC Camera (05ca:18ba)                      id=9    [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard                id=10   [slave  keyboard (3)]

The Touchpad tab shows up now in the Mouse control panel applet.  Vertical and 
horizontal scrolling, on the edges, works, and also disabling the touchpad when 
typing.  Multitouch scrolling doesnt seem to be working in this model.

Just a heads up (please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong).  The touchpad is 
correctly detected as an "AlpsPS/2 ALPS GlidePoint" upto and including kernel 
v3.1.7, however, it regresses back to the "generic mouse" in kernel v3.2.0.  
Multitouch still does not function in 3.1.7.
