I hope I'm not the only one with this problem.

Using the Synaptics drivers on the Asus K55N yields a semi-unusable user experience for me. I've disabled vertical scrolling and tapping, yet when I try to set my thumb down on the K55N's ClickPad (where the Left and Right mouse buttons are supposed to be on a real touchpad), the cursor locks up and I can't move it until I've removed my thumb or other finger from the touchpad.

This makes it impossible to play games with.

Please, PLEASE, someone help. This is getting the better of me on ALL Linux distributions, not just Xubuntu.

Thanks in advance,
