    I was going to look at my xorg and see if I could figure out anything, but I realized it only reads
    Section "ServerFlags"
    Option "DontZap" "Off"
    I'm getting rusty at actually configuring xorg.

    Couple of things I might try.

    Change the server layout section to
    InputDevice    "SynapticsTouchpad"  "SendCoreEvents"
    Then in input device
      Option      "AlwaysCore"        "true"
    Is your touchpad working at all? It's just the right scrolling that doesn't work?

    Worse comes to worse, I might backup what you have, regenerate a new xorg.conf, and copy and paste the configurations on the Arch wiki I posted and see what happens.

    Damn... still nothing!

    But to answer your question, the touchpad does work. Just no scrolling for the edge of the pad.
    And as far as the copy-paste idea... I tried that and it didn't work.

    Later tonight I may look into updating the xserver version and see what hotplugging does for me.
