Regaining Lost Touchpad Preferences on Ubuntu 10.10

October 12, 2010

After updating to Ubuntu 10.10 – the Maverick Meerkat – I discovered, that I had lost the touchpad preferences on my Macbook Pro 13″ (mbp7,1). A quick-google revealed this post, describing the solution:

  1. Install the driver: sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-synaptics
  2. Log out and then back in
  3. Open System>Preferences>Mouse and go to the Touchpad tab
