Touchpads that have issues: GNU/Linux fix

– some laptop’s touchpad (like mine) tends to stop working after some time. You can prevent this by adding the i8042.nopnp Linux kernel parameter to GRUB (editing the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=”” line in /etc/default/grub, or by executing sudo dpkg-reconfigure grub-pc from the Terminal and going through the setup process)
