Support broken in 12.04?


Hello everyone,

since I installed Ubuntu 64biz 12.04, the multitouch support for my Synaptics trackpad seems to be broken. When I try to "sudo mtdev-test /dev/input/event9" (which is my touchpad) it throws:
-> error: could not grab device

Also geistest is throwing an error saying:
-> error subscribing to gestures
-> error subscribing window 0x000000b9

Is this a known problem with synaptics pads, am I facing a bug here, or is it intended behaviour?


P. s.
Needless to say, it worked with this touchpad from 11.04.
