I've purchased a Lenovo Ideapad Flex 15 after installing Ubuntu 13.10 (also tried Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS) the touchpad works, but is not detected as a touchpad. I am pretty sure it is detected as a PS/2 mouse. The laptop house a touch screen as well as a touchpad.
When I boot the computer and press the key to go into the bios or even the boot menu, the mouse pointer is in the middle of the screen and will not move. Moving the mouse nudges it, but it always immediately recenters itself.
