Hi JeanAustinR, touchpad is not working properly in just 11.10. Most of the time when i work on my system it suddenly hang up and touchpad stop working but rest of keys(keyboard) are working properly.

Sounds like this bug

For the moment there are several ways to address - if disabling the touchpad while typing is not something you need then simply
Click on the session-indicator icon in upper panel, far right
Go to System Settings > Mouse & Touchpad > Touchpad
Disable, (uncheck), the 1st. option under the 'General' settings (Disable touchpad while typing

If you do need the option enabled then post back, there is a way to enable it directly thru syndaemon that would cause the bug.

Doug McMahon (mc3man) is correct. Just try with it. Disable touchpad while typing. I had this problem, and i did the same, my problem got solved. Thankyou.
