[SOLVED] Synaptics hate my touchpad

I have a Asus K55n and the left button doesn't work, neither taping or scrolling(two finger) or three finger forget it.

ETPS/2 Elantech Touchpad properties are:

I think the most important one is: Synaptics Capabilities (328):    1, 0, 0, 1, 1, 1, 1
but looking to the reference is not detecting my left button of the touchpad.

Anyone? i invite you a beer!!!

Re: [SOLVED] Synaptics hate my touchpad

doing this script I was able to make the scrolling to work for a few days but not anymore.

Any super hero to my rescue?

Script:

# higher sensitivity

# faster speed and acceleration
synclient MinSpeed=1.5 MaxSpeed=3.5 AccelFactor=0.1

# 2 fingers scroll (can be also enabled in System Settings)
synclient VertTwoFingerScroll=1 HorizTwoFingerScroll=1

# faster coasting
synclient CoastingSpeed=10

# enable tap to click (2 fingers for middle click, 3 fingers for right click)
synclient TapButton1=1 TapButton2=3 TapButton3=2

# continue dragging movement when reaching the edge of the touchpad
synclient EdgeMotionMinZ=30 EdgeMotionMaxZ=40 EdgeMotionMinSpeed=100 EdgeMotionMaxSpeed=400

Re: [SOLVED] Synaptics hate my touchpad

Fixed:

First i used gnome setting (mouse and touchpad) to have my scrolling and the taping

but need it script that found in the ubuntu side that did the trick but you need to install bc

here is the script and run it as sudo

~~~~~~~~~~~

#!/bin/bash

device=$1

if [ -z "$device" ]; then
    echo "You should give the id of device (as given by xinput)";
    exit
fi

i=0
while read label min delim max; do
    if [ $i -eq 0 ]; then
        minx=$min
        maxx=$max
    elif [ $i -eq 1 ]; then
        miny=$min
        maxy=$max
        break
    fi

    (( i++ ))
done < <(xinput list "$device" | grep Range)

middleleft=`echo \($maxx - $minx\) / 2 \* 90 / 100 + $minx | bc -l`
middleright=`echo \($maxx - $minx\) / 2 \* 110 / 100 + $minx | bc -l`
left=`echo $middleright + 1 | bc -l`
right=$maxx
height=`echo \($maxy - $miny\) | bc -l`
top=`echo $height \* 0.82 + $miny | bc -l`
bottom=`echo $height \* 2 + $miny | bc -l`

xinput set-prop "$device" "Synaptics Soft Button Areas" $left $right $top $bottom $middleleft $middleright $top $bottom
