The XOrg/XFree86 Synaptics TouchPad Driver is a driver for Synaptics touchpads.
XOrg/XFree86 Synaptics TouchPad Driver project is a driver for the Synaptics TouchPad for XOrg/XFree86 4.x.

A Synaptics touchpad by default operates in compatibility mode by emulating a standard mouse. However, by using a dedicated driver, more advanced features of the touchpad becomes available.

Main features:

  • Movement with adjustable, non-linear acceleration and speed.
  • Button events through short touching of the touchpad.
  • 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.
