Since upgrading from 10.10 to 11.04, the edge scrolling on the trackpad no longer works. The Touchpad tab exists under Mouse in System Settings.

Is there a known fix for this? If not, what can I do to determine what type of touchpad is on an HP Mini 311 and whether Ubuntu Natty sees it?

used this solution from ubuntu forums on my pavilion dv5-2050br worked prety well: Edge scrolling works only if you shut down two finger scroll.

To build your own xserver-xorg-input-synaptics package, do:

mkdir tmpbuild
cd tmpbuild
apt-get source xserver-xorg-input-synaptics
cd xserver-xorg-input-synaptics-<version>
cd debian
cd patches
tar xfvj ../../../synaptics-suse-patches.tar.bz2
ls -1 2*.patch >> series
cd ..
cd ..
sudo apt-get build-dep xserver-xorg-input-synaptics
dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc -rfakeroot
sudo dpkg -i ../xserver-xorg-input-synaptics_<version>_<arch>.deb

And then restart your X server
