Hi, just to eventually add something to solving the problem:

I just installed Kernel v2.6.35.4-maverick and now my touchpad is recognized as touchpad again:

xinput says:

(2)]
⎜ ↳ ETPS/2 Elantech Touchpad id=15 [slave pointer (2)]

where before it was just this generic ImPS/2 thing. I can now access Gsynaptics and the touchpad-options under preferences->mouse (or at least i think it is, i'm using the german version so the names may not be correct).

(Downside is that the Fn-Buttons aren't working as smooth as before, but that's not as important to me then having the touchpad work right)
