    Synaptics Touchpad gestures only

    I want to use my Thinkpad T40's touchpad for gestures only, not for mouse movement. Is there any way to accomplish that?
    Even with disabled Touchpad, synclient shows touchpad strokes, so it should be possible to intercept these strokes and use them for gestures.
    I have tried easystroke before, but it didn't seem to work with my touchpad at all, not even with an enabled one.

    Thank you in advance.

    Me too. Did anyone find something like this?

    I am using an ELAN touchpad in an Asus laptop. I am unable to find even an open source driver (for windows) to try fiddling with it on my own.
