Bug Description

$ sudo apt-get install gsynaptics-elantech
E: Couldn't find package gsynaptics-elantech

I just installed 9.04 vanilla and then the netbook-eeepc kernel over that. trying to get the elantech trackpad driver

my /etc/apt/sources.list.d/array-jaunty.list contains the www.array.org stuff that allowed me to get the netbook-eeepc kernel

eeepc is using gsynaptics-elantech that was created by Asus -

"The elantech driver provides enhanced touchpad support for all EeePC models.
It extends the standard psmouse.ko module to support new Elantech extensions.
The elantech driver was written by Arjan Opmeer and is currently being merged into the upstream Linux kernel (ETA, 2.6.28)."

can someone post an instruction for other other laptops?
what does it mean 2.6.28 in terms of availability for us?
