    Ok i have tried reinstalling everything, meaninv that i have switched to ubuntu 12.04 and still no game, I have tried installing a lot of stuff, alps drivers from the launchpad pages, also the synaptics drivers and still nothing, whenever i type:

    Code:
    synclient -m 1
    the response is:

    Code:
    Can't access shared memory area. SHMConfig disabled?
    Couldn't find synaptics properties. No synaptics driver loaded?
