Installed W541 touchpad no mouse settings or gestures

#1 Post by Utwig » Tue Dec 12, 2017 9:59 pm

I installed W541 touchpad on T540p to get middle mouse buttons back.

Hardware ID is:
ACPI\VEN_LEN&DEV_0034

Now I have no mouse tab for ulranav in additional mouse settings and there are no touchpad gestures. The touchpad works. I tried lattest 19.15 and older 18.07 drivers. Anyone has an idea?

You might visit this Lenovo forum thread regarding similar issues with a FIX. I've never done the swap on the machine you have but I had seen it mentioned over there with similar devices before. I was poking around over there for something else. What is the current OS?

Do you have a pic of the sticker on the back of the touchpad? I recently bought one off ebay and could not get those features you mention to work on my T450s.

You need to check if you have an Alps or a Synaptics touchpad.
They use different drivers, but look almost identical.
(On average people don't want Alps)

How can you tell and where are the drivers?
