    dell touchpad over-sensitivity, How to fix?

    1) I have Dell Inspiron laptop with alps touchpad which is highly over-sensitive i.e. without touching pad, I can drag the cursor. Whenever I do double-tap, it moves to some other place and sometimes weird, unwanted action accidentally happens.

    2) Moreover, when I land two finger together, cursor jumps sometimes. I reproduced it in this way- let suppose two fingers are 1 and 2 when I place them at two places on touchpad and now tap 2-2 now when I lift up 1, the cursor jumps.

    For 1, Somewhere, I found about synclient FingerLow and FingerHigh, but don't know how to give them correct value and how to set them on every bootup. Hope anybody would have solution.

    Thank You

    Perhaps you need to reconfigure the Synaptics Driver. The following Wiki from another distro should help you.
