Can't adjust touchpad after upgrading from Ubuntu 8.1 to 9.1


I just upgraded from Ubuntu 8.1 to 9.1. Selecting (tapping) with the touchpad is a problem. I can not adjust it with the System > Preferences > Touchpad GUI. I have to tap and tap and tap, harder and harder. The sensitivity is way off. Can't adjust it with the GUI.

Anyone else have this issue. I'm using a Dell Inspiron.

More info: sometimes I tap and it works. Other times I have to tap tap tap tap, harder and harder. I believe it's a matter of adjusting the sensitivity of the touchpad, but do not know how to do this after upgrading to 9.1.

Can't do it with the GUI.

Thanks.

I made changes in Synclient.

Was FingerLow=10 and FingerHigh=15.

I changed them to 35 and 40 respectively. This improves my touchpad performance greatly, but when I repeat synclient -l, it still has Low=10 and High=15. Seems strange.

Do you know which values regulate the cursor speed?

thanks,
