Touchpad doesn’t work Linux in one of my laptops. Any distribution. It works only with Windows. It has a touchscreen, so not much of a problem. The maker of the laptop tried to help, but couldn’t. They make only Windows computers.
About Unity on other DEs; I am experimenting with them. I stay away from the default Ubuntu distro, when installing Unity on them. Xubuntu is a very good distro, so you can keep it and change to one DE, when you want. I uninstalled xubuntu-desktop just to see how Unity works alone.
@khurshid-alam, @mc3man Do you know a solution for this touchpad problem of @itzcuintliazul?
