Bug Description

Dell inspiron 6000 with Synaptics touchpad.
Dapper flight 4 installed.

Bug1. Synaptics touchpad is tooooo slow....
Bug2: Increasing mouse acceleration from System Preferences has no effect on speed of touchpad mouse pointer.
Bug3: Touching the touchpad does not activate clicks.
I have to use the click buttons below the touchpad to click.

Additional info: USB mouse works excellent on the same machine.

Dell Inspiron 8200 (Alps touchpad) has the same problem. Touchpad is way to slow, and single/double clicks no longer work.

Seemingly a fix exists at

Same problem here with my Dell Inspiron 6000. This is a regression, the touch pad's acceleration was working properly in Breezy. Scolling etc has never worked out of the box though.

I've the same problem with a hp zv5421. I think people who use alps touchpad have the same problem. Mandriva 2006 seems to have a right configuration (scrolling, tapping, speed, etc)

Confirmed on Flight 5 on a Clevo VIA-based P4 laptop with Synaptics touchpad. Clean install.

Used to work fine in Breezy.

Manually adding lines in xorg.conf solved the problem:
