    Exclamation [SOLVED] low touchpad sensitivity

    hi, i'm dual booting with XP in my Acer 5672WLMi laptop
    i have installed gsynaptics also[have set SHMconfig to "on"]

    1-i find that the touchpad sensitivity is very low compared to Xp especially when using Tap for mouseclick setting[acceleration is fine]
    i have set the the sensitivity to max, but several times i have to tap much harder than in i need to in XP[where the sensitivity setting is only at 70%]
    my finger aches after a few hrs of browsing!

    is there any way to increase this tap sensitivity?

    2-can the area of the vertical scrolling border be reduced?[this option exists with synaptics software in XP]

    3-what does the faster tapping option do[system>touchpad>tapping]?

    4-click lock doesnt work properly

    Re: low touchpad sensitivity

    hi, I am having the same problem. I'm using a toshiba a-200 and the touchpad is working so far, it just feels like I need to get a sludge hammer out to "click" on anything. Any ideas, thanks
