Got a problem with my touchpad since I upgraded to 12.04: it's working but i cant do nothing with it: very imprecise and very slow.

try to handle the touchpad config in settings but no results... the problem is the same with or without usb mouse plugged in.

well this is not a big issue since the mouse is working properly (even its a very recent microsoft model), but well i would be happy to have a portable entire portable ^^

xinput in terminal returns:

⎡ Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)]
⎜ ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer id=4 [slave pointer (2)]
⎜ ↳ Microsoft Comfort Mouse 6000 id=9 [slave pointer (2)]
⎜ ↳ PS/2 Mouse id=11 [slave pointer (2)]
⎜ ↳ AlpsPS/2 ALPS GlidePoint id=12 [slave pointer (2)]
⎣ Virtual core keyboard id=3 [master keyboard (2)]
↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard id=5 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ Video Bus id=6 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ Power Button id=7 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ Sleep Button id=8 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard id=10 [slave keyboard (3)]

(see the microsoft deluxe mouse)

and i guess alpsPS2 is the touchpad?

xserver-xorg-input-synaptics is installed and uptodate.
