my touchpad has stopped working on my acer aspire one after i performed the recommended updates. I get the error "GSynaptics couldn't initialize. You have to set 'SHMConfig' 'true' in xorg.conf or XF86Config to use GSynaptics" Help! I'm not sure how to do this as I have only had a non windows based machine for 1 day!!!

Which Linux distro do you have?
You may need to search 'Acer synaptics driver' in google for drivers which is what I would do first.
Do an update. I use "yum update" which will update all the packages on my box.
