[WORK AROUND]Touchpad TapButton2 and TapButton3 issue

Hello

I've been trying to copy paste with the touchpad with the "select/middle click" gesture.
With synaptics, midle click is suposed to be provided by a "two finger tap" on the touchpad.
However it is not working, and after having wandering a bit, i've find out that "two finger" and "three finger" tap are not working.
here is my synclient -l output :

$synclient -l
   LeftEdge                = 32
    RightEdge               = 768

    MiddleButtonAreaLeft    = 0
    MiddleButtonAreaRight   = 0

My first guess was my touchpad does not support multi touch but:

$xinput -list

So,  Capabilities is nothing but "1", so from the wiki, it should support multi touch and midle click should work.
But, so we see in the wiki, it is also suposed to have an "physical" midle click, wich i can tell you it don't have. So i'm not sure these capabilities information are reliable.
Any help appreciated in order to understand the problem.

Thanks

You don't have a synaptics touchpad (those show up as "SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad").

Re: [WORK AROUND]Touchpad TapButton2 and TapButton3 issue

Sorry about the bump.

Well i did not think of that. you made a good point.
As far as i understand, Cypress Trackpad driver in not included in the current kernel
And i guess it's working, because i fall down to synaptics.
So right now, i'm installing a patched wersion of the linux kernel 

I will let you know
Thx

Re: [WORK AROUND]Touchpad TapButton2 and TapButton3 issue

With this version of the kernel, wich is suposed to include the Cypress Trackped driver, i see no change at all.

Edit: Thanks to WonderWooffy for digging that, Cypress Trackpad driver is already included in the current kernel.
So i need to understand why synaptics configuration is not working with my trackpad.
Am i suposed to use synaptics to configure it anyway ?

Re: [WORK AROUND]Touchpad TapButton2 and TapButton3 issue

I've just found a nice work-around.
the "paste" gesture can be done with "Shift+insert" instead of midle click.
Since i have no other use for the midle click, i consider this issue solved.
