This bug is a bit sneaky. Upon reboot (didn't change anything) the touchpad now works in the login screen and desktop.

I have a similar problem on two different computers after upgrading to Lubuntu 14.04.
On the E-machines only the tap-to-click option is not working. The touchpad works on the login screen and in the guest account.
On my Sony Vaio the touchpad is actually working but it's really slow and only when it "wants" to work, even then only for one second. External mouse works fine. Same problem on the login screen and during guest sesssion.
