Name        : xorg-x11-drv-synaptics
Product     : Fedora 23

Release     : 4.fc23

Summary     : Xorg X11 Synaptics touchpad input driver
Description :
This is the Synaptics touchpad driver for the X.Org X server. The following
touchpad models are supported:
* Synaptics
* appletouch (Post February 2005 and October 2005 Apple Aluminium Powerbooks)
* Elantech (EeePC)
* bcm5974 (Macbook Air (Jan 2008), Macbook Pro Penryn (Feb 2008), iPhone
  (2007), iPod Touch (2008)

Note that support for appletouch, elantech and bcm5974 requires the respective
kernel module.
A touchpad by default operates in compatibility mode by emulating a standard
mouse. However, by using a dedicated driver, more advanced features of the
touchpad become available.


    * Movement with adjustable, non-linear acceleration and speed.
    * Button events through short touching of the touchpad ("tapping").
    * Double-Button events through double short touching of the touchpad.
    * Dragging through short touching and holding down the finger on the
    * Middle and right button events on the upper and lower corner of the
    * Vertical scrolling (button four and five events) through moving the
      finger on the right side of the touchpad.
    * The up/down button sends button four/five events.
    * Horizontal scrolling (button six and seven events) through moving the
      finger on the lower side of the touchpad.
    * The multi-buttons send button four/five events, and six/seven events for
      horizontal scrolling.
    * Adjustable finger detection.
      Multifinger taps: two finger for middle button and three finger for
      right button events. (Needs hardware support. Not all models implement
      this feature.)
    * Run-time configuration using shared memory. This means you can change
      parameter settings without restarting the X server.
