Post hp touchpad recognition
Mepis 11
How can I get the HP Touchpad recognized?
I only know to look in /mnt and /media after attaching the device. Tried having it attached at boot time and also attaching to usb port after bringing up system.

Have you checked system settings >> input devices >> touchpad? Also make sure you go to startup & shutdown >>service manager >>Startup Services and check synaptiks touchpad controll daemon is ticked to start.

With the device plugged in, bring up a terminal and enter lsusb.

Paste the results here.

Thanks for the replies.
After I put in the request, I rebooted with xp on this same machine where it was recognized. Then I rebooted into Mepis 11 and this time it was recognized on /dev/sdb and /mnt/sdb.
I made no changes.
lsusb shows it as a palm device. (did not try lsusb before sending my request).
