To fix it you need install a lot of software. I try it but it not works for me.

The most fast and simple solution is upgrade linux kernel to 3.14.1.

The workflow is next:

32-Bit Systems

Download the .deb packages.

$ wget kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.14.1-trusty/linux-headers-3.14.1-031401_3.14.1-031401.201404141220_all.deb

$ wget kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.14.1-trusty/linux-headers-3.14.1-031401-generic_3.14.1-031401.201404141220_i386.deb

$ wget kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.14.1-trusty/linux-image-3.14.1-031401-generic_3.14.1-031401.201404141220_i386.deb

Install packages.

sudo dpkg -i linux-headers-3.14.1-*.deb linux-image-3.14.1-*.deb

Reboot your system.

sudo reboot

64-Bit Systems

Download the .deb packages.

$ wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.14.1-trusty/linux-headers-3.14.1-031401_3.14.1-031401.201404141220_all.deb

$ wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.14.1-trusty/linux-headers-3.14.1-031401-generic_3.14.1-031401.201404141220_amd64.deb

$ wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.14.1-trusty/linux-image-3.14.1-031401-generic_3.14.1-031401.201404141220_amd64.deb

Install packages.

sudo dpkg -i linux-headers-3.14.1-*.deb linux-image-3.14.1-*.deb

Reboot your system.

sudo reboot

After reboot your “Mouse & Touchpad” settings will be the next:
