    Mouse pointer messed up after update

    Hey,

    I turned my computer on, mouse was working as usual.
    Then I did

    apt-get update
    apt-get upgrade
    apt-get dist-upgrade
    apt-get autoremove
    reboot

    and now when I touch the touchpad the pointer jumps around the screen and I cant make a click with the touchpad but only with the built in touchpad buttons.
    And I can no longer find the option for making a click using the touch pad instead of the build in touchpad buttons (which I could do before the update today).

    Has anyone else had this problem and maybe someone knows how to fix this ?

    First run this:

    Code:
    modprobe -r psmouse
    modprobe psmouse proto=imps
    then make persistent this changes..:

    Code:
    options psmouse proto=imps
