How do I now change the touchpad pointer speed?

I have Fedora 20 installed on my old ASUS laptop. It's been running really well until yesterday. After updating my system my touchpad pointer speed is really slow. The slider in settings -> mouse & touchpad no longer changes the pointer speed.

I have a script that uses synclient to change the speed manually but it's not quite right. I just want things as they were with the pointer speed slider working.

Here's a list of everything that was updated:

grub2-tools-2.00-26.fc20.x86_64
libwbclient-4.1.9-3.fc20.x86_64
samba-libs-4.1.9-3.fc20.x86_64
samba-common-4.1.9-3.fc20.x86_64
libsmbclient-4.1.9-3.fc20.x86_64
java-1.7.0-openjdk-headless-1.7.0.60-2.5.0.1.fc20.x86_64
selinux-policy-3.12.1-171.fc20.noarch
xorg-x11-server-common-1.14.4-10.fc20.x86_64
hplip-common-3.14.6-2.fc20.x86_64
hplip-libs-3.14.6-2.fc20.x86_64
hpijs-3.14.6-2.fc20.x86_64
libsane-hpaio-3.14.6-2.fc20.x86_64
xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.14.4-10.fc20.x86_64
selinux-policy-targeted-3.12.1-171.fc20.noarch
java-1.7.0-openjdk-1.7.0.60-2.5.0.1.fc20.x86_64
samba-client-4.1.9-3.fc20.x86_64
grub2-2.00-26.fc20.x86_64
grub2-efi-2.00-26.fc20.x86_64
device-mapper-persistent-data-0.3.2-1.fc20.x86_64
iputils-20140519-1.fc20.x86_64

The only thing I can think of that might've caused this is xorg-x11-server-Xorg but I have no idea how or why. My pointer literally just went from normal speed to very slow right after this update completed. Does anyone have any insight?
