Synaptics TouchPad driver for X.Org server
This package provides an input driver for the X.Org X server to enable
advanced features of the Synaptics Touchpad including:
* Movement with adjustable, non-linear acceleration and speed
* Button events through short touching of the touchpad
* Double-Button events through double short touching of the touchpad
* Dragging through short touching and holding down the finger on the touchpad
* Middle and right button events on the upper and lower corner of the touchpad
* 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
* 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
* Run-time configuration using shared memory. This means you can change
parameter settings without restarting the X server (see synclient(1)).
* It also provides a daemon to disable touchpad while typing at the keyboard
and thus avoid unwanted mouse movements (see syndaemon(1)).

need to apply the ALPS kernel patch in the alps.patch file. See
http://www.kernelnewbies.org/faq/ for information about how to apply
kernel patches and compile kernels.
Note! If you use kernel 2.6.11 or later, the alps patch is already
included, so you don't h
