Fixing an Alps Touchpad in Ubuntu Linux


For no good reason, I have been playing around with Ubuntu Linux lately. I have setup my Dell Inspiron 600m as a dual-boot Windows XP and Ubuntu Linux machine. I am currently running the Dapper Drake distribution of Ubuntu Linux.

The behavior of my laptop’s touchpad made using linux very frustrating. I spent several hours today trying to disable the tapping feature (tap-to-click) of my touchpad until I finally found this thread which provides excellent instructions on how to fix the touchpad.
