Touchpad issue while drag/drop (Dell Mini 10) [solved]

I purposed to install the beautiful world of Linux on the laptop of a friend, but I mainly encounter two issues. I've searched in the Internet for this issues, but it was generally outdated.
I have split that in two topics in hoping that it could be solved faster.. (the other:

The netbook is a Dell Mini 10, and I've choose to install Cinnamon and LXDM. All packages are up to date from the non-testing repo (linux, systemd, xorg-server, pulseaudio, alsa, ..).

The particularity with this netbook is that buttons (left and right) which are "real" buttons, are in the "same area" than touchpad. ( … pad_10.jpg)
The issue is that I cannot click with the left button and drag on the touchpad. However I can drag/drop if I click with the touchpad.
I first tried without adding and changing anything in config file. The click works but I cannot move the mouse with another finger, only the finger which press the left button can move the mouse.
After searching a bit, I then tried to add some options to synaptics. The issue is the same.
Here is the 10-synaptics.conf file (I tried commented options but they solved anything):

Section "InputClass"
    Identifier "touchpad"
    Driver "synaptics"
    MatchIsTouchpad "on"
        Option "SHMConfig" "true"
        Option "TapButton1" "1"
        Option "TapButton2" "2"
        Option "TapButton3" "3"
#        Option "JumpyCursorThreshold" "90"
        Option "AreaBottomEdge" "4100"
#        Option "AreaLeftEdge" "1500"

I found this bug report which fit my issue, but it said that it has been fixed. … bug/736523
So I don't know if it's because of me who forget something in configuration.

Thank you very much for your help!
