"Ok I solved my own problem =)

It can be fixed by enabling SHMConfig and then configuring the touchpad with the gsynaptics tool.

Enable SHMConfig:

$ gksudo gedit /etc/hal/fdi/policy/shmconfig.fdi

and put this in...

<?xml version=""1.0"" encoding=""UTF-8""?>
<deviceinfo version=""0.2"">
<device>
<match key=""input.x11_driver"" string=""synaptics"">
<merge key=""input.x11_options.SHMConfig"" type=""string"">True</merge>
</match>
</device>
</deviceinfo>

Reboot your machine.

$ sudo apt-get install gsynaptics

$ sudo gsynaptics

and after changing the options located in gsynaptics it now works!"
