I've got a Samsung Series 5 Chromebook which I've installed Ubuntu on. In Chrome OS the clickpad is working great but in ubuntu it hasn't got the same settings so I'm having problems with selcting text. I managed to find the setting in Chrome OS, it's 120 about lines of settings looking like this:

Device 'SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad':
    Device Enabled (131):   1
    Coordinate Transformation Matrix (133): 1.000000, 0.000000, 0.000000, 0.000000, 1.000000, 0.000000, 0.000000, 0.000000, 1.000000
    Device Accel Profile (265): -1
    Device Accel Constant Deceleration (266):   1.000000
    Device Accel Adaptive Deceleration (267):   1.000000
    Device Accel Velocity Scaling (268):    10.000000
    Device Node (250):  "/dev/input/event6"

Now I would like to import these settings to Ubuntu. Is that possible?

Which version of ubuntu have you installed on your Chromebook? If you don't know, do you still have the instructions you were following? – Donal Feb 5 '13 at 22:16
