Anyway, instructions for installing the newer version from source are [here|http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=76515].
The new driver will move the mouse much more slowly than the normal PS/2 driver, so make sure you set the other options for scroll speeds.
If you are using Ubuntu 5.10 ("Breezy") and aren't comfortable with compiling software, and you trust us, you can grab a pre-compiled version (for [x86] computers) from our [software archive|http://www.wlug.org.nz/archive/software/ubuntu/5.10_Breezy/synaptics_drv.o]
and copy this into the <tt>/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/input/</tt> directory. (It's probably a good idea to back up the existing file.)
