Thinkpad T61 Touchpad Broken in 10.10
Upgraded to 10.10. Touchpad works before I log in, after logging in it stops working. It worked fine for a week after I upgraded.
Touchpad works fine in Windows 7 (dual boot).
The trackpoint works fine, just not the touchpad.

You might try Fn-F8 . If that fails go to this directory /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d and look for a file called 50-synaptics.conf . If it has a line in it containing "disable" try deleting that line. It seems you need to log out and back in again before that takes effect. [Where is the Ubuntu doco about this? This stuff used to be in /etc/X11 ...]
