Instructions/troubleshooting https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SynapticsTouchpad and http://askubuntu.com/questions/18482/whats-the-recommended-way-to-configure-a-synaptics-touchpad-device After configuring, edge scrolling works also, and two-finger-tap for right-mouse-click.
Suspend/ResumeUnknown There used to be a bug in Ubuntu 12.04 that would leave the screen black when resuming from suspend. Not sure what the state of the bug is now. It's still possible to resume working without rebooting by killing/restarting X. It is possible to just disable suspend and just turn off the screen if need be, which is what I did.

Summary

Other than having to configure the touchpad in the beginning, and setting up Bumblebee to use the Nvidia GPU, works great.
