Hello everyone!
This is my first post. I hope I have posted it in the appropriate section.

Here is the problem I'm having:
I just purchased the Asus K61IC-A1 laptop and installed Ubuntu 9.10 on it.
Everything is now working properly with the exception of the Touchpad, which is made by Elantech.
To clarify, the Touchpad does function correctly, but I cannot configure some of its properties.
I want to disable 'click' on the pad, but when I go to System->Preferences->Mouse, there is no 'Touchpad' tab; which is where the 'Enable mouse clicks with touchpad' option is located.

I assume this is a driver/detection issue but I don't really know how to proceed.

I did find some information about Elantech touchpads in Ubuntu on eeepc's but it did not help, it just kept breaking X.

Here is the relevant section of my /proc/bus/input/devices (which shows the improper detection - i think!?) and my whole xorg.conf:

-------start /proc/bus/input/devices-------
I: Bus=0011 Vendor=0002 Product=0005 Version=0063
N: Name="ImPS/2 Logitech Wheel Mouse"
P: Phys=isa0060/serio4/input0
S: Sysfs=/devices/platform/i8042/serio4/input/input9
U: Uniq=
H: Handlers=mouse1 event9
B: EV=7
B: KEY=70000 0 0 0 0
B: REL=103
-------end /proc/bus/input/devices-------

-------start xorg.conf-------

Section "Module"

-------end xorg.conf-------

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!
