Touchpad: right-click and scrolling don't work
Im running -current and I ran into a strange problem;
my touchpad doesn't work anymore, I can move the pointer around, also tapping works but when I right-click or left-click, they both operate as a single left click, I cannot scroll up or down either.
I have xf86-input-evdev, xf86-input-synaptics installed, kept to their default configs, I've installed xf86-input-mouse too but I still have this problem.
If I'm not wrong; this problem surfaced as I was trying to switch to -current and multilib from 13.37
-Booting with a liveCD shows that the touchpad works fine, so the hardware is okay.
-Rsync slackware64-current and rufollow upgrade instructions to replace all the files before switching to multilib again. Everything works perfectly except for the touchpad
Thank you in advance!
Okay found a work-around;
I shamelessly stole a working synaptics config from a ubuntu Live CD and copied it to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/
Everything works now!
