Configuring Alps Touchpad under Ubuntu Linux
I followed you instructions but still, no touchpad menu visible in settings. Two finger scrolling, Fn-F3 and disable-while-typing works. Once testing of the upstream kernel is complete, please mark this bug as “Confirmed”. Email me about changes to this bug report. Unfortunately, it wanted to pull in a huge number of files to resolve dependencies.
In the old days, you only had two or three of them. Not all options are appropriate; for example, Elantech touchpads don’t support pressure, and many other touchpads don’t support multitouch.

What was the problem? Most laptops have a hot key to disable the touchpad where F5 is, but not HP. Download and try aops install the deb file from here as the question indicates, using sudo dpkg -i. However, be aware that it is likely your desktop preferences, if you have them, will override your system-wide settings.

I’ve given an upvote, but not to get you reputaation. Still no success with enabling edge or two-finger scrolling as yet, although the edge-scrolling option is now not grayed out in the Mouse and Touchpad control panel.

However, the effect of the fix was simply to disable the touchpad completely, at least for my laptop. Would you like to ububtu one of these unanswered questions instead? It was written for Synaptics brand touchpads, but it supports the Alps too.
Unfortunately this didn’t work any better, which is why I raised the bug against 4. Converted from a rpm package by alien version 8.
It’s crude, but it works, and it won’t stop you from closing your laptop. The libinput driver is provided by xserver-xorg-input-libinput. All you need to do is install this DKMS.
I didn’t dare to try with psmouse-alps-dst To reenable a disabled touchpad in gnome on stretch: It will, if I let it, do tap to click which is the last thing I want. Need an update for these in the kernel.
However, it seems to have introduced a regression.
