Can you share more information about at least OS, Driver and Touchpad? –  Tom Wijsman Aug 4 '11 at 13:56

Most likely this is due to the Xorg Synaptics driver not being installed installed. X will recognize it as a pointing device without the drivers, but the scrolling, lock-on-type, and other touchpad features only work when the driver is installed.
