I have an HP Pavilion dm3 laptop running Ubuntu 11.10. My touchpad works perfectly fine, but with one exception, the scrolling does not work. Does anybody out there know of any sure-fire fix that exists out there?

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
- "This describes a problem that can't be reproduced that seemingly went away on its own or was only relevant to a very specific period of time. It's off-topic as it's unlikely to help future readers." – Zanna, David Foerster, Elder Geek
The following commands fixed it for me (temporarily until reboot):
sudo rmmod psmouse sudo modprobe psmouse proto=imps
And to make it permanent
sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/options
Add this line:
options psmouse proto=imps
Note: This fix will make the touchpad be recognized as a mouse instead, which will remove some features specific to touchpads such as disable while typing.
