    Touchpad not working after installing lubuntu 18.10

    I have problem after installing lubuntu 18.10 on a very small Aspire One laptop.
    All seems to be reasonably well, except for one thing: the touchpad is not working.
    Here is what xinput tells me:
    Virtual core pointer                                        id=2    [master pointer  (3)]
     ⎜   ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer                    id=4    [slave  pointer  (2)]
     ⎜   ↳ SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad                id=13   [slave  pointer  (2)]
     ⎜   ↳  USB OPTICAL MOUSE                       id=10   [slave  pointer  (2)]
     ⎣ Virtual core keyboard                                 id=3    [master keyboard (2)]
         ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard                id=5    [slave  keyboard (3)]
         ↳ Power Button                                       id=6    [slave  keyboard (3)]
         ↳ Video Bus                                            id=7    [slave  keyboard (3)]
         ↳ Power Button                                       id=8    [slave  keyboard (3)]
         ↳ Sleep Button                                        id=9    [slave  keyboard (3)]
         ↳ WebCam: WebCam                             id=11   [slave  keyboard (3)]
         ↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard              id=12   [slave  keyboard (3)]
         ↳ Acer WMI hotkeys
    Mind you, this still looks like Chinese to me, as I am a complete Linux Newbie, but xinput is a command I picked up while surfing in the hope to find a solution.

    I assume I have not given people much to go on, but feel free to ask for further information.

    PS. The laptop specs: Intel 1.66 GHz, 512 Kb cache. 1Gb DDR3 RAM. 250 Gb HDD.

    Any help will be very much appreciated.
