    On a Dell inspiron n411z with ubuntu 12.04.2 (kernel 3.5), I installed and run the Intel installer, everything went fine but after restart I lost the functinality of my touchpad.

    I had to re-install 12.04.2 to get it working again.

    I have seen on the net that some other people have suffered the same problem.

    Is there any fix for that?



    Details of my laptop:

    1 Ubuntu 12.04.2 precise 64bit (en_US.UTF-8), Ubuntu 3.5.0-26
    2 Intel Core i3-2330M CPU @ 2.20GHz ‖ RAM 3841 MiB ‖ Dell Inc. 0YWNPW - Dell Inc. Dell System Inspiron N411Z
    3 Intel 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:0116] (rev 09)
    4 eth0: Atheros Inc. AR8152 v2.0 Fast Ethernet [1969:2062] (rev c1) ⋮ wlan0: Intel Centrino Wireless-N 1030 [8086:008a] (rev 34)

  • Hello madvinegar,

    Yes, we have had a few threads here on the forums about difficulties users have been having with our Installer and Ubuntu* 12.04.2. In light of those reports, we have done an analysis, and made a decision.

    I will be making a formal announcement later today communicating our decision not to support the Installer on the Ubuntu 12.04 release. This is the "short version." I will go into more detail in the announcement.

    If one wants to have the best experience with their Intel(R) graphics, we highly recommend moving to the latest Installer-supported Ubuntu release, currently 13.04.
