Hi AceLan,

your solution works for me until  reboot. How do I make it permanent?
Thanks for your help!

  ACER aspire S3 track pad doesn't work with 12.04,  backport needed
  from 12.10

Bug description:
  Initial install of 12.04 on ACER ASPIRE S3-951-6828 had trackpad not
  working properly when left/right button pressed.   Specifically other
  motion on the trackpad was not detected when those buttons were
  pressed,  but were detected otherwise.    It did respond to button
  select and using the arrow keys.

  12.04 was updated to the latest kernel in -updates (3.2.0-27.43) - and
  problem was still there.

  update-manager -d to 12.10 seems to have resolved issue.
