The Problem

The options for Mouse and Touchpad are combined on one page see image below enter image description here

The pointer speed moves, but doesn't change anything and is not saved when I exit, also the two finger scroll is greyed out. Also I feel that there should be a lot more options available.

Can anyone advise which drivers to install please.

I found the answer to this in the Ubuntu Software Centre! Make a search for Synapstiks and download the 'Synapstiks Touchpad management' tool, it works a treat.
