Comment 47 for bug 1041916

Thank you, Jeremie Tamburini - thank you really ever so much!!! Finally
fixed! I write for a living, and having a practically uncontrolled cursor
has been a terrible ordeal. Now my Fujitsu is perfect.

I had seen numerous references to the alps-1.3, but was unable to install
it. Your simple and accurate 6-step guide was crystal clear and made all
the difference!

Thank you again.
