  SONY Vaio VGN-CS11S touchpad primary button not working with lm-
  sensors and nvidia-current / nouveau

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

  01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: NVIDIA Corporation G98
  [GeForce 9300M GS] [10de:06e9] (rev a1) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])

  3) What is expected to happen is when one:
  + installs nvidia-current, restarts, and login
  + uses xserver-xorg-video-nouveau

  the touchpad works.

  4) What happens instead is:
  + with nivida-current the primary button does not work at all,
  + with xserver-xorg-video-nouveau the primary button stops working after a period of inactivity or until Firefox is open (especially with flash content).

  Neither is resolved using an external mouse. The cursor may be moved
  around with the touchpad or the external mouse, and the secondary
  button works as well.

  Hence, this touchpad problem is correlated to a bug in X. THe problem
  in nouveau was also present in Precise.
