People that were used to have gpointing settings to change the touchpad settings will have noticed that it is no longer available in the ubuntu 16.04 repos. The package maintainers seem to have stopped working on it.
The package for ubuntu 15-10 is stil available on launchpad and is with some extra work in terminal working in 16.04 /Bodhi 4.
mkdir debs cd debs wget http://launchpadlibrarian.net/128621862/gpointing-device-settings_1.5.1-6ubuntu2_amd64.deb wget http://launchpadlibrarian.net/128621864/libgpds0_1.5.1-6ubuntu2_amd64.deb sudo dpkg -i libgpds0_1.5.1-6ubuntu2_amd64.deb gpointing-device-settings_1.5.1-6ubuntu2_amd64.deb cd In case of errors run sudo apt-get install -f #(will correct missing dependencies) sudo dpkg --configure -a #(should configure packages that were not fully installed/configured)
Now you should have gpointing-device-settings in the menu under preferences, ready to use.
Thanks to the Bodhi developer team, especially <sef> for working this out.
