I bought a laptop 2 weeks ago, wiped Windows8 off and installed Ubuntu 12.04. I've been trying to install synaptiks for the past 6 days trying multiple fix's, so I could configure my touchpad because the touchpad hits my left palm when I type and consistently erases most things because of it and I cant 2 finger vert scroll.
I believed the problem was related to my touchpad driver but I had the its-saucy synaptics installed for everything. When I use xlist it shows my touchpad is identified yet when I run synaptiks it says it can't find a touchpad. Any help greatly appreciated.
The internal error I have is: ExecutablePath: usr/bin/synaptiks
Package: kde-config-touchpad 0.8.1-1ubuntu1.2
Title: synaptiks crashed with AttributeError in show_configuration_dialog():'SynaptiksNotifierItem'object has no attribute 'touchpad'

if there's any directory spelling mistakes it's because I typed it all out
