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 satellite laptop.
Everything but... my touchpad! I want to be able to use it but with tapping disabled.
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 touchpad
- i've pasted sample config lines into xorg.conf (posted in these forums), with SHMConfig = true with no luck...
in other distros, all i had to do was edit this xorg.conf... but what about Fedora?
Thanks for your help...
