I am running Ubuntu 12.04.

I did some updates. After restarting the computer, the buttons on my touchpad and wired mouse no longer work.

I had this trouble before with the left button on the touchpad. In that case I plugged a mouse in and it worked fine. Now, I can't do anything except move the mouse around.

I need a fix, fast. I have tried everything I've come across online; some help would be most appreciated!

It may be solve your problem, I am not sure about this.

Check if you have xserver-xorg-input-evdev installed on your system:

sudo dpkg -s xserver-xorg-input-evdev

If yes, do:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

If no, do:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-evdev

Reboot.
