Synaptics touchpad / x.org

I'm trying to get the synaptics driver working in x.org for my touchpad.
(tap = klik and a scrolling area in the pad)

This is how my /etc/X11/xorg.conf looks like:

Section "Module"
    ...
    Load       "synaptics"
    ...
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
  Identifier    "synaptics"
  Driver        "synaptics"
  Option        "Device"        "/dev/misc/psaux"
  Option        "Protocol"      "auto-dev"
  Option        "LeftEdge"      "1700"
  Option        "RightEdge"     "5300"
  Option        "TopEdge"       "1700"
  Option        "BottomEdge"    "4200"
  Option        "FingerLow"     "25"
  Option        "FingerHigh"    "30"
  Option        "MaxTapTime"    "180"
  Option        "MaxTapMove"    "220"
  Option        "VertScrollDelta" "100"
  Option        "MinSpeed"      "0.06"
  Option        "MaxSpeed"      "0.12"
  Option        "AccelFactor" "0.0010"
#  Option        "SHMConfig"     "on"
#  Option       "Repeater"      "/dev/ps2mouse"
EndSection


    InputDevice "Mouse1" "Corepointer"
    InputDevice "Keyboard1" "CoreKeyboard"
    InputDevice "synaptics" "AlwaysCore"

I had _no_ problems by compiling and installing the driver.
I already tried to switch Corepointer and alwayscore between Mouse1 and synaptics.
With the code shown above kde boots but no tapping or any other synaptec feature.
If I set corepointer to synaptics and alwayscore to mouse1 then I get the following error:

Query no Synaptics: 6003C8
(EE) synaptics no synaptics touchpad detected and no repeater device
(EE) synaptics Unable to query/initialize Synaptics hardware.
(EE) PreInit failed for input device "synaptics"
(II) UnloadModule: "synaptics"

I already enabled and disabled this line: #  Option       "Repeater"      "/dev/ps2mouse"

Re: Synaptics touchpad / x.org

You have to load evdev module (modprobe evdev). Have you done that already?
I compiled / installed synaptic drivers yestarday on my lap. Just followed it's readme.
Feel free to contact me via pm, so I can send you my config.

Re: Synaptics touchpad / x.org

don't use "AlwaysCore" use "SendCoreEvents" in x.org

I set my touchpad up with ZAxisMapping and the scroll worked.....
