I'm trying to install the touchpad-indicator discussed here:

but I keep getting this error, even after using Software Center to enable those software sources. Any help? I'd like to have this program.

You can install touchpad-indicator by downloading the .deb file. Once downloaded, just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, navigate to the folder where the file was downloaded, and run the command below:

sudo dpkg -i <package_name>

Now keep in mind if you get the error below:

touchpad-indicator depends on gir1.2-gconf-2.0; however:
  Package gir1.2-gconf-2.0 is not installed.
touchpad-indicator depends on python-pyudev; however:
  Package python-pyudev is not installed.

You can download Package gir1.2-gconf-2.0 here, and Package python-pyudev here
