Anyone know where I can find information / drivers for a synaptic touchpad driver ?
 
Using Kubuntu, my touchpad constantly fails to recognize taps. I know this isn't the hardware, because Knoppix Live sets it up very nicely.

Any thoughts?

Thanks.

Install the ksynaptic package. It should be available in one of your repositories. (Note: I'm a Fedora user, but I think, but don't really know, that this is correct for you, too.)

Your device section in xorg.conf should look something like this:
Code:

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Synaptics"
        Driver      "synaptics"
        Option      "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
        Option      "Protocol" "auto-dev"
        Option      "Emulate3Buttons" "yes"
        Option      "SHMConfig" "true"
        Option      "UseShm" "true"
EndSection
