So, here's my dilemma, I much prefer Fedora compared to Ubuntu, but ever since I started using 12, my touch pad no longer works as I'd like it too.
Now sure, I can go make an fdi entry so I can enable horizontal scrolling and the like (personally I don't like two-finger scrolling), but in Ubuntu and if I remember right Fedora prior to 12, I was able to run these two commands and my touch pad worked quite well.
modprobe -r psmouse
modprobe psmouse proto=imps
The problem I experience with Fedora 12, is that while a fdi file somewhat makes things work as I'd like (although I have to manually set the RightEdge parameter, not sure if I should have too), my mouse tends to get very jumpy and sporadic after a few hours of use. While this is also the case in Ubuntu 9.10, I'm still able to run those two commands and get my mouse working as it should.
Is there a way to replicate this in Fedora 12? I've tried searching, but I can't find any relevant articles for Fedora 12. I'll be more than willing to provide any log files or listings of hardware per request.
