Touchpad no longer works, cinnamon 1.6.7

Postby Myrmidon83 on Fri Dec 07, 2012 9:23 am

Just noticed this as I usually use a usb mouse with my laptop. Ever since I installed the backports and cinnamon 1.6.7, the touchpad and buttons no longer work. Any ideas on this? I've been in the mouse settings but no joy.

Using Mint 13 Cinnamon with backports enabled.

It's a small thing but one I'd like to know how to fix.
