So I can't do any scrolling. Laptop is a Dell latitude XT.

Any ideas? Any other info I can give that would help?

Well, I tried to pull up my xorg to list it, but I must be looking in an old place. is there a new way to access it in 10.04?

Still cannot find a way to make it re-detect the mouse :(

Very useless without scrolling on a touchpad...

Yeah, no go. Still sees my touchpad as a mouse, not a touchpad.

Here is my Xorg list (but in 10.10 now):



xinput --list

You might try installing linux-tools. There were some updates for the Dell Latitude Alps touchpads and I think they are bundled in this package, but I could be wrong.

Didn't seem to make any difference.

Still no luck.

I did find out that while my Trackpad uses a Synaptics driver, it is an ALPS trackpad.
