Bug Description

Touchpad doesn't work at all in jaunty, only the buttons are ok. In intrepid it was all ok.

I think my touchpad is a synaptic model, but I'm not sure.

You can find it out by typing "cat /proc/bus/input/devices | grep -B 5 mouse", if it's a Synaptic or else.

My Xorg.conf lacks any "input device" section.

The external mouse works perfectly.

Now it works as a generic mouse:

After the upgrade to karmic it's all ok with the touchpad.

Sometimes during the boot I have the following:

"touchpad refuse to switch to absolute mode"

but it works well.
