The touchpad doesn't work on Ubuntu 9.04 (the latest)

There is some information about this bug here:


Please note that I am JUST covering the touchpad issue here.

The problem seems to be with elantech touchpads. From my understanding
of this bug, what's happening is that if the mouse is not moving for a
few seconds, and then the touchpad is used, it takes a little while for
the driver to kick in. As a result, there is a sense of "getting stuck".

Note that this problem makes the touchpad semi-unusable. Between this,
and the Intel video card issue, the upgrade to 9.04 made my computer
"hardly usable"...

Not sure how to debug this. It's hard enough to make sense of it...
