    Downloaded Kali and the touchpad won't work

    I'm on an ASUS C200 Chromebook. I downloaded Kali with crouton. I've had Ubuntu/Debian on here before and everything worked fine with that, but, now that I have Kali - and I don't have Ubuntu/Debian anymore if that makes a difference - the touchpad won't work. I go into Kali and the pointer is stuck in the middle of the screen and won't move. Does anyone know what to do?

    your xorg.conf, Input Device section, what does it say?

    Mine from an hp elitebook

    Section "InputDevice"
    # generated from default
    Identifier "Mouse0"
    Driver "mouse"
    Option "Protocol" "auto"
    Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
    Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
    Makes a massive difference which distrobution your using.. You are still using Debian by the way. But Ubuntu and the way it ships with more bloat than you would ever need, has people under this false assumption that linux should just works out the box, it's not that way I'm afraid. A major plus of having a customizable kernal is that we can choose just those modules needed for talking with our hardware, you just need to have a good idea of what that hardware is. It will be worth it when you have a bloat free system that's even more efficient.

    Maybe you just need to install synaptics driver:

    # apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-synaptics

    Remember that you have to log out and then log in to make the touchpad works
