For some users, the default touch pad settings can be too sensitive. To adjust these settings, a utility called "gsynaptics" can be used. Complete the following steps to install and enable this utility:

  1. From the "Application" menu, select Accessories -> Terminal
  2. On the command line at the terminal, type the following:
sudo apt-get install gsynaptics
  1. On the command line at the terminal, type the following:
sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
  1. Scan down through the open file and find the following line:
   Identifier     "Synaptics Touchpad"
  1. Insert a new line under that line, and type the following:
   Option        "SHMConfig"   "on"
  1. Save the file and exit
  2. . From the System -> Preferences menu, select "Touchpad" and adjust the settings
