Well I am happy to report a success to this. It turns out that in order to get my touchpad working I needed to blacklist the psmouse module from loading prior to udev and hal doing their thing. Then reload it in my rc.local file. Then I had to specify my touchpad within xorg.conf, but that's fine for me as I needed it for my graphics card and keyboard anyway.

Thank you adityavpratap.

I found that I had to include the MaxTapMove option on my Dell Inspiron 3700. Without it the changes killed my left button and did not activate tap-to-click although I could still move the cursor and my right button still functioned.

You stated in your post that you "unloaded and reloaded psmouse." How do you do that without rebooting?

I think -
Quote:
$ sudo modprobe -r psmouse
$ sudo modprobe psmouse
should do the trick.
