The problem appeared after upgrading from Lucid to Precise. The middle click on the touchpad stopped working.

I have a "Lite-On Tech IBM USB Travel Keyboard with UltraNav". It's basically the keyboard on thinkpads with the touchpad on it. There are 3 buttons above the touchpad and 2 below. Plus a red button in the middle of the keyboard that can be used as a mini joystick to move the mouse pointer.

Since the middle click stopped working (under Lucid, I used to press both left and right buttons at the same time to emulate the middle click), I tried to enable it using the following command:
synclient TapButton3=2
as recommended by several forums

It tells me: "Couldn't find synaptics properties. No synaptics driver loaded?"

so I checked in dmesg, /proc etc and it seems that it's there (see below), so I am wondering what's going on...

I have a NVIDIA graphics card, and xorg.conf was generated by nvidia-xconfig

$ dmesg |
