I've just installed Fedora 16 (Xfce) on a Fujitsu Lifebook E8010, and have found the touchpad to be far too sensitive. When I attempt to adjust the sensitivity, however, I run into problems, as the touchpad is detected as a "PS/2 generic mouse" instead. A yum update hasn't resolved this detection problem.
I initially intended to look into adjusting the sensitivity via synclient (at present, if I do anything more than barely brush my finger on the touchpad, it registers as a click), but it tells me there is no synaptics driver loaded (presumably because the system thinks there's a regular mouse attached rather than a touchpad).
I therefore have two problems:
1) How can I get Fedora to recognise my touchpad as a touchpad?
2) Either with or without managing #1, how can I reduce the sensitivity of the touchpad?
Many thanks in advance!
