alps touchpad rec. as macintosh mouse in lenovo notebook?
 
I have got lenovo 3000 Y500.
I have installed fedora 8 on it.

while installing the touchpad and keyboard didn't work.
So I installed it using external mouse and keyboard.

after installation also these two things didn't work.
I have checked the content of /proc/bus/input/devices.

I: Bus=0017 Vendor=0001 Product=0001 Version=0100
N: Name="Macintosh mouse button emulation"
P: Phys=
S: Sysfs=/class/input/input0
U: Uniq=
H: Handlers=mouse0 event0
B: EV=7
B: KEY=70000 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
B: REL=3
......
....
..

thew content above states that my ALPS touchpad is rec. as macintosh mouse..

can anybody suggest me something about how to rectify it.
I have already tried modify 'xorg.conf' and grub.conf, but of no use.

I have the same device in my file
Code:

I: Bus=0017 Vendor=0001 Product=0001 Version=0100
N: Name="Macintosh mouse button emulation"
P: Phys=
S: Sysfs=/class/input/input0
U: Uniq=
H: Handlers=mouse0 event0
B: EV=7
B: KEY=70000 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
B: REL=3

but I have a Synaptics PS/2 touchpad. It's probably all the same hardware, but rebranded by different companies.

However, my keyboard and touchpad work.

Make sure you have this in "/etc/X11/xorg.conf"
Code:

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "Synaptics Touchpad"
        Driver          "synaptics"
        Option          "SendCoreEvents"        "true"
        Option          "Device"        "/dev/psaux"
        Option          "Protocol"      "auto-dev"
        Option          "HorizEdgeScroll"      "0"
EndSection

and this
Code:

Section "ServerLayout"
        Identifier      "Default Layout"
  screen "Default Screen"
        Inputdevice    "Generic Keyboard"
        Inputdevice    "Configured Mouse"
       
        # Uncomment if you have a wacom tablet
        #      InputDevice    "stylus"        "SendCoreEvents"
        #      InputDevice    "cursor"        "SendCoreEvents"
        #      InputDevice    "eraser"        "SendCoreEvents"
        Inputdevice    "Synaptics Touchpad"
EndSection
