I have a Thinkpad x220i. I'm using Natty. The touchpad works ok, but the pointer is "shaky" which is really distracting.

I tested the Oneiric Alpha 3 and there the Touchpad works fine out of the box. The synaptics package in the Oneiric Repos is 1.4.1, in natty it is 1.3.99.

How can i upgrade to the 1.4.1 version?

I don't know if there are any dependencies involved, but you can try to download 1.4.1 from here (check the Builds at the bottom of the page for your architecture) and install it with apt-get

if he is on 11.04 how is he going to install a package for 11.10 using 11.04 repos? – Uri Herrera Aug 17 '11 at 15:09
The link above provides the .deb binary directly. No repos are used. That's why i said that he might face depencency issues. – Pavlos G. Aug 17 '11 at 15:14
