    Hi,
    I've just upgraded my aspire one from 9.04 to 9.10. Everything seems to be working fine apart from there being no response from the mouse pad. Can't click or move the cursor. Anyone know how to fix this?

    Did you press the mouse pad toggle (Fn-F7) by accident? Try pressing Fn-F7 and see if that cures the problem. If it doesn't, press it again to go back to your current state. HTH

    The trackpad is turned off after install... believe it or not, this seems to be a feature and not a bug!!

    You need to navigate to something like Settings -> Mouse, then look under one of the tabs for the 'enable trackpad' checkbox. Sorry - can't quite remember where it was, but I clearly remember having to fix it.

    From Gnome desktop:

    System --> Preferences --> Mouse

    Then choose the 'Touchpad' tab....
