    Elantech Touchpad Without xorg.conf


    I am on Debian Sid.

    Everything works except that I can't use the touchpad to simulate a left-click, and also the scrolling doesn't work.

    I don't have an xorg.conf and I don't want to create one thinking it might interfere with hotplugging.

    I have used gpointing-device-settings however that application claims tapping is enabled.

    The same touchpad works on Arch and FreeBSD so I doubt it is a hardware problem.

    What do you suggest I do?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    See how Arch is mounting it - it may have an xorg.conf entry for it. Then duplicate that on Sid.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
