    Question Touchpad configuration in xorg - Jaunty

    Hi!

    I wanted to change my touchpad minimum speed, but when I open
    $ gksudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    all what i see is


    # xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
    #
    # This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
    # values from the debconf database.
    #
    # Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
    # (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
    #
    # This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
    # if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
    # package.
    #
    # Note that some configuration settings that could be done previously
    # in this file, now are automatically configured by the server and settings
    # here are ignored.
    #
    # If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
    # again, run the following command:
    # sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

    Section "Monitor"
    Identifier "Configured Monitor"
    EndSection

    Section "Screen"
    Identifier "Default Screen"
    Monitor "Configured Monitor"
    Device "Configured Video Device"
    SubSection "Display"
    Virtual 1360 1568
    EndSubSection
    EndSection

    Section "Device"
    Identifier "Configured Video Device"
    EndSection
    It is clear that there is no touchpad there!
    so I added this section
    Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "Synaptics Touchpad"
    Driver "synaptics"
    Option "SendCoreEvents" "true"
    Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
    Option "Protocol" "auto-dev"
    Option "HorizEdgeScroll" "1"
    Option "MinSpeed" "0.60"
    Option "MaxSpeed" "1.10"
    Option "AccelFactor" "0.030"
    Option "EdgeMotionMinSpeed" "200"
    Option "EdgeMotionMaxSpeed" "200"
    Option "UpDownScrolling" "1"
    Option "SHMConfig" "on"
    EndSection
    but i'm not sure if i should've added this section.
    Should I have added Alps instead of Synaptic? because i think it is Alps touchpad not synaptic.


    How would i configure it? where to start?
