I am experiencing an erratic scrolling issue with the touchpad on my laptop.

Basically scrolling sometimes continues on it's own. Sometimes scrolls up when I have scrolled down, sometimes scrolls down I have scrolled up.

This behaviour happens in most new releases of Ubuntu, Debian and Fedora. Possibly a gnome issue?

Using xev -event mouse, I can see that:

buttons 4&5 are for scrolling, but button 6 is displaying randomly whilst scrolling.

Any ideas how I can get the touchpad to work please?

Thanks in advance.
