I installed Ubuntu 14.04 in my new laptop (Lenovo Z50-70).

Unfortunately, the touchpad is not working well. Without any modifications/installs, just left and right click buttons are working (no scroll).

After doing this: Cannot use twofinger on lenovo z5070 touchpad ubuntu 14.04

My right click button has stopped working and scrolling is now working well.

How can I have my touchpad (left and right click buttons and scroll) working perfectly?

Thank you !
