Mouse drift on Dell Latitude c840 running Feisty 7.04

Hi Kim,

Thanks for the reply.

Probably the touchpad is disabled when the laptop is docked. I read
about this solution elsewhere, but an external mouse/keyboard just isn't
practical for me. 

You're right, other than this problem, Ubuntu has been running nearly
perfectly on this laptop. Unfortunately, this problem may end up being a
deal-breaker. :(

Thanks again,
