  Gestures won't work on HP/Compaq mini 311 touchpad

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  The touchpad of the HP Mini 311 seems to be recognized as a touchpad. It partially seems to work, too: I can move the mouse pointer and if I tap on the touchpad this is recognized as a click. This feature tends to be rather hysterical, though, so for a few weeks now I am trying to tell the touchpad to disable tap-on-click while typing. All tools that could help there I am aware of (syndaemon, gnome-mouse-properties, syncmd) seem to know that my touchpad is a touchpad and offer me to change configuration parameters. syncmd even shows the altered value for the parameters afterwards if I try to read them back.
  The problem now is that no matter what I am doing my tries to change the sensitivity, gesture, tapping, scroll or any other part of the touchpad's behavior seem to be completely ignored by the touchpad itself: It always stays in the default mode (No two-finger-scroll, no edge or circular scroll, default sensitivity and click-on-tap is enabled).
  There already has been a bug report for this issue (Bug #527890) but it is now closed since it was filed against a series of Ubuntu that is no more supported.
