Touchpad cursor area reduced after upgrade

Asked by Gomez on 2014-12-06

Hello, i've upgraded ubuntu to 14.10, but after the upgrade, area for cursor movement on the touchpad was rapidly reduced.
To be exact, the area is reduced only until first touch(start of movement) and after then touchpad area is not limited. I tried to adjust touchpad area by synclient settings, but it has not effect. I also tried "modprobe psmouse" but that led to loosing two finger scrolling option. Can anybody help me with this?

Does the system have a make and model?

I have upgraded from 14.04LTS and i have upgraded through terminal using do-release-upgrade if you are asking that :) What do you mean by the second reply?

You do realise that 14.10 is only supported til July 2015, wheras Trusty is LTS and supported til April 2019

Why the upgrade at all....was everything not working in Trusty?

Yes of course I do, i had some problems with audio over hdmi on trusty..but anyway I was curious about it, release notes stated some better support for my graphics..but back to the problem, have you came across any solution? :)
