    No Right Click/Cursor Jumping

    Hello,

    For whatever reason I have no right click ability on my laptop when running Ubuntu (12.04). When I plug in a USB mouse it has right click and full functionality, but with just my pad thing I have yet to find a way to right click.

    The cursor also jumps around randomly when I'm moving it around using the pad making it peskingly inaccurate. In Windows or with a USB mouse I have no issues with the cursor.

    I know yall need more info to help me, but I'm not sure what's relevant or where to find it.

    Thanks!

    Perhaps the make and model of your laptop, and of your touchpad. I'm not really a specialist in debugging this kind of hardware related stuff, but that info will probably be helpful.

    On my synaptics touchpad in a HP laptop I can right click with the right button (well, that's obvious) and by tapping the touchpad with two fingers simultaneously.

    Can you post the outputs of xinput list and synclient. If the touchpad is detected, hopefully, we can get it configered properly.
