I just reinstalled FC3 on my laptop after trying Mandrake (didn't perform as well on my laptop) and everything seems to be going well except for two things. My Alps touchpad doesn't seem to be working. The installer couldn't auto-detect it so I picked "generic 2-button PS/2 mouse" since that is what Windows XP originally recognized it as. That didn't work and I don't see any tool to change it graphically. Do I have to edit my configuration file to change something as basic as that? If so, what kind of mouse setting should I use for the touchpad?
Also, while I'm writing, when the system returns to the console (ie: when ctrl-alt-F1 is pressed or the system is shutting down) the graphics sort of freak out on me. Oddly enough it doesn't do this at the console on startup - only once the graphic environment has been opened. I'm not sure what is causing this but I am thinking that maybe manually specifying the refresh rates might fix it. But, I don't see an option for that either. Is there a tool for this or do I just have to edit the config file for this too?
