comment How can I get two-finger scrolling working on my trackpad?
I tried running the revised commands above, but on the second command, I got Error! DKMS tree already contains: psmouse-elantech-x551c. You cannot add the same module/version combo more than once.

Running synclient returns Couldn't find synaptics properties. No synaptics driver loaded?. This is probably because I don't have a synaptics trackpad. The instructions in that link don't apply to me, since I already have the 3.16 kernel, and it already has the appropriate patch (see my comments to the answer here that suggests patching the psmouse module).

This made it so that X wouldn't start at all. I had to remove the file from a TTY in order to get my computer to boot properly.

For the second command, I'm getting: Error! psmouse-elantech-x551c is already added! Aborting. and Module psmouse/elantech-x551c already installed on kernel 3.16.0-28-generic/x86_64 for the third command. I added the output of that command to the question.

@Fabby, just the standard kernel for Ubuntu 14.10. I also tried running other kernels, but they didn't fix this issue.

comment How can I get my broadcom wifi card to work?
The lspci output in my question showed bcma-pci-bridge instead of wl, since I was trying that driver at the time. But my main problem is that when I'm using wl, and only wl, then my wifi cuts out every minute or so. I blacklisted all the other drivers like you suggest, but the problem is not loading the driver, the problem is that the driver, when properly loaded, isn't working well--my wifi keeps cutting out every minute, and is excruciatingly slow. I'll edit my question to reflect my current lscpi output.

@rubo77, Have you been able to get two-finger scrolling working on the trackpad? Mine works in Fedora, but not in Ubuntu (question here).

comment How can I get two-finger scrolling working on my trackpad?
If you read my question you'll see that my xinput output isn't Elantech (like it should be), it's PS/2 Mouse. Also if you see the comments on the question, installing the 3.18 kernel doesn't help--the trackpad still gets recognized as PS/2 Mouse. Since my trackpad is getting recognized as a mouse (and a very old one at that), my System Settings doesn't have options that relate to touchpads, since it thinks I have a PS/2 Mouse.

comment How can I get two-finger scrolling working on my trackpad?
That question doesn't really help. It suggests installing the 3.18 kernel, which isn't an easy task. I installed that kernel, and nothing has changed--it's still getting recognized by Ubuntu as a PS/2 Mouse.
