Reload this Page Toshiba Satellite L645D - Touchpad not working in Fedora 14 (64-bit)

Let me preface this by stating that I am a very new Linux user (newb) so I could be missing something very obvious. I have a Toshiba Satellite L645D-S4056 and recently installed Fedora 14 (64-bit GNOME) with all sorts of updates and software.

I'm working my way through all of the hardware to get it all running properly. I figured out how to get the RealTek wireless-n adapter working. The webcam is working even with Skype which is tricky on the 64-bit version.

At the moment, my touchpad doesn't work. I see a lot of articles online about the touchpad not double-tapping, but mine doesn't work at all. I've been using a mouse for all my GUI stuff.

I went to SYSTEM --> PREFERENCES --> MOUSE and selected the touchpad tab, but I can't figure out how to make it work.

Any tips, suggestions, walk-throughs, etc. would be both helpful and appreciated.

I found the solution on my own and it was so simple, I'm too embarrassed to say what it was.
