[SOLVED] Dell Inspiron 5720 (core i7) Touchpad not scrolling

My laptop is sold with Ubuntu 11.10 and there touchpad worked without problems. After upgrading to 12.4 scrolling stopped working and disappeared from the settings tab touchpad mouse.
The same problem and now, on archlinux. Tried all that is possible - can `t make it work scrolling. Be so kind as to help solve the problem.

>> $ uname -rs

Linux 3.5.4-1-ARCH

>> xinput list

⎡ Virtual core pointer                    	id=2	[master pointer  (3)]
⎜   ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer              	id=4	[slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ PS/2 Elantech Mouse                     	id=13	[slave  pointer  (2)]
⎣ Virtual core keyboard                   	id=3	[master keyboard (2)]
    ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard             	id=5	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Power Button                            	id=6	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Video Bus                               	id=7	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Video Bus                               	id=8	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Power Button                            	id=9	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Sleep Button                            	id=10	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Integrated Webcam                       	id=11	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard            	id=12	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Dell WMI hotkeys                        	id=14	[slave  keyboard (3)]

If anything else is necessary - just tell me and I'll post

Thanks in advance.

YEP!

It's worked!

read "post-factum" comment!
But, you must first remove all drivers that you previously install, then reboot and go step by step so, as wrote "post-factum" - https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php … 6#p1169236 (I mean the driver for the touchpad)!
