Touchpads don't work with Sony's VAIO Y series out of the box. The solution is a boot cheatcode.

1. Non installed systems (firing up the ISO)

Add "i8042.nopnp=1" to grub's parameter line.

2. Installed systems

Edit /etc/default/grub and add "i8042.nopnp" to the line starting with GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX. The line looks like
      Code:
 GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="i8042.nopnp"
If you have more than one boot parameter, separate them by a blank.

After saving the change run
      Code:
update-grub
and reboot. Touchpad will work.
