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. Features: * 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 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 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.
