    Unable to configure mouse


    I am unable to configure the features of the touchpad on my computer.
    I am able to set the feature I want with synclient when X is running with "synclient TapButton1=0", which will disable the "tapping" feature on the touchpad -- this is what I want.

    However, I when I try to set this as an option in my xorg.conf, I am unable to do so consistently.

    In my xorg.conf: If I simply use /dev/input/mice as device, it never seems to work. However if I use the /dev/input/event* device which the mouse is actually detected as, then it will work. However this is a problem, as the particular number for the event device is subject to change after a reboot.

    If I simply use /dev/input/mice I get an error that a synaptics device is not detected in my Xorg log -- still later on in the log it states a synaptics device has been detected under one of the /dev/input/event* devices. Does not /dev/input/mice map to the correct event device?

    I have tried with different "protocol" settings as well as having attempted to combine and mix all settings I can think of. What am I doing wrong? I have the exact same issue on a Dell laptop as well.

    Computer: Acer Aspire One D255E
    Slackware version: 13.37
    Kernel version: 3.0.0 (manually optimized for this computer, however the issue is reproducible with the stock kernel as well as other kernels).
