Touchpad not working correctly after upgrade. #2459
Hey there, after upgrading to Cinnamon 2.0.2-20131011040307-precise (Ubuntu 12.04 LTS) the touchpad of my Lenovo T420 Thinkpad is missing the click function and the scroll with two fingers function. Both of them are working fine under Gnome and Unity but not under cinnamon. Can you please fix this?
Ok, it did work like 'homoSapiensSapiens' said. You have to adjust the mouse/touchpad settings in the Cinnamon Menue (Systemsettings/Controlcenter via the Menuebutton)... It works for me now under gnome and cinnamon...

Sorry to raise the dead but I too was unable to restore two finger scrolling within the mouse/tablet applet on Cinnamon desktop after a recent Ubuntu 12.04 update (the two finger scroll radio button option was visible, but does nothing when selected).
I used the info in the following post to install a script which restores two finger scrolling at start-up. This is tested working on 12.04:
Basically, it sets a variable accessible via the 'synclient' command (that command alone will list the current set of values).
I hope this helps someone.
