Well I've been trying to configure the horizontal and vertical scrolls on my laptop with no luck. I've cleaned my xorg.conf file to this:
After I made the changes I CTRL+ALT+Backspace to restart the X server.
Option "SendCoreEvents" "true"
Option "Protocol" "auto-dev"
Option "SHMConfig" "true"
Then I tried installing gsynaptics, and this comes up
GSynaptics couldn't initialize.
You have to set 'SHMConfig' 'true' in xorg.conf or XF86Config to use GSynaptics
And it's already set to true. I'm using the 2009 Gnome version of Mandriva. What can I do to get my scrolls working, or how con I enable the use of gsynaptics?
Thanks for your time
I think this is a bug that's affecting a lot of people!
Perhaps make sure you have
InputDevice "Synaptics Touchpad" "Core Pointer"
set up in the server layout at the end?
Hmm strangely enough it now works!. Dunno what was wrong but apparently I got my scroll working with those changes.
So did you add the stuff to the server layout?
May help others if you let them know,
Here's my server layout bit:
I didn't touch it, that's the default config, hope this helps others
InputDevice "Keyboard1" "CoreKeyboard"
InputDevice "SynapticsMouse1" "SendCoreEvents"
InputDevice "Mouse1" "CorePointer"
