Touchpad suddenly doesn't work anymore on my 12.04 LTS (AMD64 desktop). An attached USB mouse works and since I have a dual-boot system with Windows 8, I know the touchpad has no hardware problems. Tried many things including last resort re-install 12.04 LTS from scratch. Still touchpad no longer work.

Could you provide more details? What is the make and model of your system? Do you know what the touchpad hardware is? (Probably a Synaptics touchpad but check). What is the output when you open a terminal and type synclient? –  Aaron D Apr 26 '13 at 8:37
