  Touchpad not working but USB mouse working

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I have just installed Ubuntu 12.10 64-bit on my laptop (Novatech
  nFinity N1403 [NNB-979] ultrabook with 8gb RAM) but the cursor will
  not move and is just stuck in the middle of the screen. This was the
  same during the installation but I just used the keyboard and hoped
  that after installation the cursor would move but to no avail. An
  external USB mouse does work.

  WORKAROUND: Kernel parameter: i8042.noloop
