Touchpad Option Does Not Exist Error Fix for Ubuntu 13.04

Hello Linux Geeksters.

By default, some laptops (like: Dell Vostro 3360 or Dell Inspiron 17R 7720 SE) have some touchpad issues when using Ubuntu 13.04, like the 2-finger scrolling not working. This is a fix that worked for me:

Delete the old dkms driver:

$ cd /var/lib/dkms/psmouse/
$ rm -rf alps-dst-0.4

Download the new driver from here:

$ wget

Next, do this tweaks:

$ tar xvf psmouse-alps-1.3-alt.tbz
$ cp -afr usr/src/psmouse-alps-1.3/ /usr/src/
$ dkms add psmouse/alps-1.3
$ dkms autoinstall
$ rmmod psmouse && modprobe psmouse
