Synaptics touchpad on laptop...


Recommended Posts

hey anyweb, maybe you (or someone else) can help me out with this one...

 

I'm running Debian 3.1 "Sarge" on my notebook...

 

It was running 2.4 kernel okay but I wanted the ACPI to turn off my notebook automatically... so I upgraded to 2.6.7...

 

Under 2.4 my touch pad worked fine (tap-to-click and scroll bars) now after upgrading... my touchpad moves very fast... which is okay because I just slowed down the mouse acceleration... but i can't tap or scroll now... I downloaded the synaptics driver... i installed it through apt-get and I also download the source... did my make and make install... added *what I assume to be* the correct entries into the XF86Config-4 file and restarted X... then I had no mouse activity at all.. so i just commented out the lines I added in the file... and it works okay now... because it doesn't load the synaptics driver...

 

If anyone has the XF86Config-4 file from their laptop running debian on a 2.6.7 kernel... stick it up... I can't seem to get this to work....
