Hello, I am new here, so please be nice!

Basically i am wondering whether a decktop touchpad would woprk with ubuntu. I am thinking about buying the following:

Would all the features work? if not, which ones would work?

If this isn't a suitable one, could you reccommend me one?


Thanks in advance :p

PWalton,
I have a feeling that this would not work on Ubuntu. I see from the ebay listing that it says windows OS supported. I would assume that the drivers would be extremely hard to find for Linux and even harder to install and make work. I searched around for one that is Linux capable but found none I wouldn't risk the money until one actually is made with Linux support
