Hello everyone,

Just installed Ubuntu 11.10 on my new HP Pavillion dm-1-3280eg, and am having trouble with the inbuilt Multitouch-Touchpad. The right button doesn't seem to work at all, and the left button only registers occasionaly- invariably with a right-click function. The cursor movement and tapping work fine. I've tried the solution here http://bigbrovar.aoizora.org/index.php/2010/10/10/how-to-enable-right-middle-click-on-clickpads-ubuntu-10-10/ but it seems this is incompatible with 11.10, as I get an Error message when I try to install it. I don't need multi-track support, but I don't really see how I can work in Ubuntu if I can't use right click! Any ideas?

Thanks for reading,

Jono
