Touchpad locked in Gnome [Solved]

I really don't know what's going on with my touchpad in Gnome. I use Gnome, so when I'm in GDM the touchpad works ok but when I login in Gnome it locks with no apparent reason. If I plug a usb mouse it works again so I know the one it is not working is the touchpad. My laptop is a HP Pavilion dv2000. In KDE the touchpad works fine.
If I try to open System-->Preferences-->Touchpad it can't be opened either.
Regards

I had the same issue and managed to track it down to gsynaptics... which I deinstalled and now it works right.
I didn't continue searching for the error, as I didn't really know I had gsynaptics installed or what it is good for. I expect is a gnome interface for the synaptics options.
