    Odd problem with trackpad buttons on Dell d600.


    (FYI: I searched the forums to see if this had already been covered, but to no avail. If this is a question that has already been covered then I do apologize.)

    I have Debian Squeeze with LXDE installed on my Dell d600 laptop.

    I'm having an odd issue with the trackpad and buttons.

    When I click on anything, like a link, or a menu, or a file, or whatever, very often nothing happens until I move the cursor with the trackpad. Until I move the cursor, the computer doesn't recognize that I've clicked the trackpad button.

    It's not a big problem, just a little inconvenient. It's most inconvenient when I'm playing a game that requires quick reaction time, like a real-time strategy game for example.

    Do I need a special driver (I'm just using the standard mouse driver right now), and/or are there any lines I need to add to xorg.conf?

    Thanks in advance!

    There should be an icon in system->preferences=>touchpad in LXDE to setup your touchpad.
