Comment 58 for bug 545307

This is awesome!

The mentioned new patch does not only apply cleanly to gentoo-sources-3.0.4, AND xinput now reports a "AlpsPS/2 ALPS DualPoint TouchPad", no.

Furthermore the "touchpad" tab in KDE systemsettings (4.7.1 here) no longer says that no touchpad is recognized, but no states that a AlpsPS/2 Touchpad is recognized and configurable.

I _really_ hope this patch is accepted upstream!
