    Mouse Touchpad Not Edge Scrolling

    Hello everyone. My left click wasn't working on my touchpad so I looked around and found this command:

    Code:
    sudo echo options psmouse proto=exps > /etc/modprobe.d/psmouse.modprobe
    Which enabled it on reboot. Now edge scrolling doesn't work. Any ideas? I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 64bit on a Acer Aspire S3.

    Also I did check and there isn't a setting pretaining to this in Mouse and Touchpad settings.

    I can confirm that that those scrolling options are standard in Ubuntu, as well.
    Jane, stop this crazy thing!

    Code:
    sudo echo options psmouse proto=exps > /etc/modprobe.d/psmouse.modprobe
    must have disabled those options as they're no longer in that windowed gui.

    Didn't work, I got this error message:

    Couldn't find synaptics properties. No synaptics driver loaded?

    Either your touchpad is an Elantech model or you don't have the proper driver loaded for Synaptics- running

    Code:
    xinput
    would tell you which one you have.
