    Touchpad corners won't deactivate

    I have a synaptics touchpad, and whenever I use it,the corners of the touchpad perform actions that I don't want.

    Whenever I tap the bottom right part of the touchpad, the menu comes up. When I tap the top right part of my touchpad, it acts as a middle click. I have tried editing some .fdi files to make this stop, but I'm not sure the necessary options to put in an .fdi file to stop this. I would post my xorg.conf, but its commented out by hal.

    Can anyone just post an .fdi file that will stop the corners of my mousepad from performing actions?

    Try this...

    synclient TouchpadOff=0 MaxTapTime=150 ClickFinger1=1 ClickFinger2=2 ClickFinger3=3 RTCornerButton=0 RBCornerButton=0;
    It's been a while since I've read what each of those do but google it and you should be golden. I believe a value of zero for the corner buttons is in fact what you want.

    Hope it helps!
