further to this issue:

My trackpad doesn't turn on after I turn it off, before that it works

im also exhibiting the same problem, but there doesnt appear to be a solution stated on that question. As my comment states, i dont really care if i can't use the off key (if it is a bug ill just wait till a fix appears) on my trackpad, but to not have a trackpad at all is a bit of a showstopper, is there anyway to re enable a dead trackpad? nb im using ubuntu 10.10

it is indeed a bug as discussed here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-settings-daemon/+bug/546503

this is not a cure for the bug, but get your trackpad running again, run:

gconftool --type bool --set /desktop/gnome/peripherals/touchpad/touchpad_enabled true
