I'm a newbie in the linux world, been trying various distros for 6 months
and recently switched to Fedora.
I'm really enjoying this distribution and the community that surrounds it
and so far, i've been able to make eveything work perfectly on my toshiba
Everything but... my touchpad! I want to be able to use it but with tapping
It is viewed as ALPS Glidepoint device in Fedora's devices
I've not been able to make it happen, I tried:
- installing gsynaptics, but it wont start, giving me the message :
"GSynaptics couldn't initialize. You have to set 'SHMConfig' 'true' in
xorg.conf or XF86Config to use GSynaptics"
- I've looked into /etc/X11/xorg.conf but there is no reference to synaptics
- i've pasted this sample config lines into xorg.conf with SHMConfig = true
with no luck...
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "Protocol" "auto-dev"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "yes"
Option "SHMConfig" "true"
in other distros, all i had to do was edit this xorg.conf... but what about
Thanks for your help...
