Touchpad is jerky

Postby drakey on Sun Feb 10, 2013 3:29 pm

Hey all, first time actual LM dual boot user here, usually used ubuntu but I'm finally fed up enough to drop it. I installed without a hitch, but just trying to use the touchpad is terrible. It's jerky and very imprecise, so that I often hit the wrong links, or click when I do not intend to. I have a HP DV6-6190us laptop, with a synaptics touchpad. I've tried adjusting the sensitivity of the touchpad, but the touchpad options sensitivity doesn't appear to do anything. I'm a bit hesitant to mess with synclient stuff, mostly because I'm not sure where to start adjusting. I did install gsynaptics but that did not appear to help either. Any ideas?

synclient -l outputs the following:
