    I installed tpconfig and it shows

    Found Synaptics Touchpad.
    Firmware: 8.96 (multiple-byte mode).


    I tried to work with xorg.conf using some information about synaptics, and here is my xorg.conf

    Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "SynapticsTouchpad"
    Driver "synaptics"
    Option "AlwaysCore" "true" # send events to CorePointer

    Option "TapButton1" "1"
    Option "TapButton2" "2"
    Option "TapButton3" "3"
    EndSection


    Section "Device"
    Identifier "Configured Video Device"
    EndSection

    Section "Monitor"
    Identifier "Configured Monitor"
    EndSection

    Section "Screen"
    Identifier "Default Screen"
    Monitor "Configured Monitor"
    Device "Configured Video Device"
    EndSection

    Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier "Default Layout"
    # InputDevice "USB Mouse" "CorePointer"
    InputDevice "SynapticsTouchPad" "SendCoreEvents"
    EndSection

    Section "Module"
    Load "freetype"
    Load "synaptics"
    Load "evdev"
    EndSection

    but in my /var/log/Xorg.0.log
    ......
    (II) intel(0): Setting screen physical size to 270 x 158
    (II) Synaptics touchpad driver version 0.99.3

    Hi

    I solved my problem following this :

    http://agoranetbook.kayno.net/2009/0...d-doesnt-work/

    now when I run:

    dmesg | grep input

    I have input: SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad as /devices/platform/i8042/serio1/input/input9

    I hope that this can help others with same problem

    hugs
