I have an Acer Aspire 5738, and the trackpad allows for scrolling. It worked in Natty and Maverick, but doesn't work on my fresh installation of Oneiric stable. How do I get this to work?

This problem was fixed in Precise. I cannot ascertain why.


Go to System Settings > Mouse and Touchpad and click on the Touchpad tab. In the Scrolling section you should be able to set it to scroll however it did before.
