Will Touchpad-indicator work when enabled on Lubuntu 11.10's Indicator?
Touchpad-indicator appears to work on Lubuntu 11.10 (tested on an eeepc 1005ha). It is not in the official repositories but if you are comfortable with installing applications from a PPA it is available.
To install touchpad-indicator, run the following in a terminal:
To set it up:
Menu --> Accessories --> Touchpad-Indicator
This should insert a touchpad icon in the taskbar. Click on this icon and choose 'Preferences' to set the options (including autostart).
