Cinnamon? Jack E/NJYeah Cinnamon
i don't have a switch but i did find in another acer that the touchpad doesn't work (or freezes a lot) with linux if in the BIOS the "advanced" option is selected for the touchpad. If there is that option, try setting it to "basic" and see what happens (basic still allows for click emulation, vertical and horizontal scolling etc) If it's still not working from the get go, try the FN +F7 once more.
OK. Left click on start menu. Left click system center control panel. Go to hardware section. Click on mouse & touchpad. Make sure touchpad is turned on or if any error messages are displayed. Jack E/NJ
