I have a Vaio laptop, where the touchpad contains the two buttons (primary and secondary). This means you have to click your touchpad to click on things. The buttons are not separate to the touchpad.
This is a problem because I normally have two fingers on the pad at a time, one to move the cursor across the screen, and one to click on things. But in Ubuntu, two fingers means scrolling, so if one uses two fingers on the touchpad, the cursor stops moving.
I have tried:
disabling 'Two finger scroll' in settings, but this has had no effect on my problem.

xinput --list-props <id of my touchpad>: http://pastebin.com/DauLDpY4
I have tried putting this:
into my /etc/X11/xorg.conf file but that completely disables the touchpad. Might I not have mtrack installed? How do I find out if I have the right driver?
An acceptable solution is to disable a small area at the bottom of the trackpad (preferably bottom left), but I don't know how to do this?
