Smile installing Linux....touchpad scroll not working, touchpad options missing


Hey im installing Ubuntu, from within windows, for a friend who would like to try it (10.04). However, while his touchpad pointer/click is working great
1. his touchpad scroll is not working.
2.the "touchpad" tab under system>mouse>touchpad is missing.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Have you installed the synaptics touchpad driver? Try:

Code:
sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-synaptics
in a terminal, or look for it in the graphical package manager if it's not already installed.
