Why not enable it in xorg itself - from memory you can look for a file
like /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-synaptics.conf (or possibly in
/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf or similar)
Then ensure that you have a section like:
Identifier "touchpad catchall"
Option "TapButton1" "1"
Option "TapButton2" "2"
Option "TapButton3" "3"
Option "VertEdgeScroll" "on"
When you boot you should have touchpad buttons available even at the
KDM greeter stage for login - (I guess same for GDM though I am a KDE
I have been doing this for several years with my laptops....
