Since I installed an upgrade from 11.10 to 12.04 my left button (Touchpad) doesnt work well. This means I have to Log me out via STRG/ALT/DEL and log me in again. Before I log me out I just can move the mouse, but cannot do anz left klick. Somewhere I read it has to do something with the XServer and I have to restart, but Im a Newbie.

I own an Fujitsu Lifebook AH530 and I cant find any touchpad or mouse drivers for it.

Much greating, Jonathan

A patch for this issue that I've used before on a particular situation for a specific laptop (can remember the brand):

This ppa provides xserver-xorg-input-synaptics patched to provide support for Clickpads.

available in sergio’s ppa

open a terminal ctrl+alt+t then type:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sergio91pt/synaptics+clickpads

and after

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

This patch fix the problem with click buttons (located at the bottom of the trackpad), left and right click are ok with it.

A more comprehensive document about Touchpad Synaptics can be found here.
