Comment 17 for bug 565543

Vladimir It appears that you don't have the package xserver-xorg-input-synaptics installed in your linux.

To serve you better I have a few questions. Have you got a synaptics touchpad or a ALPS touchpad.
Does synaptics drivers work with alps touchpad? I mean have you got your touchpad worked ever with synaptics drivers?

Vladimir also try this and upload the results..
cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep TouchPad (mind the caps)
cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep Synaptics
