I just got an Asus U46E-BAL5 notebook. Everything seems to work in 11.4 Gnome
except the touchpad. It is coming up as PS/2 mouse, but the kernel doesn't
appear to be recognizing that it's a touchpad. It's close to unusable - it
needs real drivers.

I haven't tried 12.1 - I plan to,though. All I've been able to find out via
Google is Ubuntu 11.04 has similar issues and that there are some drivers that
seem to fix it. See


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install openSUSE 11.4
2. Boot into GNOME desktop
3. Use the machine.
Actual Results:
The touchpad is usable, but none of the touchpad utilites recognize it . they
think it's a mouse. And it's jumpy and erratic. And there's no way to turn it
off when using an external mouse.

Expected Results:
All the touchpad utilities work and I can turn it off when using an external
USB mouse
