Problem with touchpad scrolling
 
Hi,
I'm trying to get the touchpad scrolling to work on my Toshiba Tecra S1. I installed the Synaptics Touchpad dirver version 0.13.6, but I don't think the X-server is detecting correctly. Here are the relavent sections from my X-server config file /etc/X11/xorg.conf:
Code:

# XFree86 4 configuration created by pyxf86config
Section "ServerLayout"
        Identifier    "Default Layout"
        Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
        InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
        InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
        InputDevice    "Synaptics Mouse" "AlwaysCore"
EndSection

Section "Module"
        Laod  "mouse"
        Load  "synaptics"
        Load  "dbe"
        Load  "extmod"
        Load  "fbdevhw"
        Load  "glx"
        Load  "record"
        Load  "freetype"
        Load  "type1"
        Load  "dri"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Mouse0"
        Driver      "mouse"
        Option            "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
        Option            "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
        Option            "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
        Option            "Emulate3Buttons" "yes"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier          "Synaptics Mouse"
        Driver          "synaptics"
        Option        "Device"          "/dev/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

Then int the file /proc/bus/input/devices I still get "PS/2 Generic Mouse" instead of "SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad". When I looked into the x-server log file /var/log/Xorg.0.log, I see:
Code:

(II) LoadModule: "synaptics"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/input/synaptics_drv.o
(II) Module synaptics: vendor="The XFree86 Project"
        compiled for 4.2.0, module version = 1.0.0
        Module class: XFree86 XInput Driver
        ABI class: XFree86 XInput driver, version 0.3

and also:
Code:

(II) Synaptics touchpad driver version 0.13.6
Synaptics Mouse no synaptics event device found (checked 4 nodes)
(**) Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
(EE) xf86OpenSerial: Cannot open device /dev/psaux
        No such file or directory.
Synaptics driver unable to open device
(EE) PreInit failed for input device "Synaptics Mouse"
(II) UnloadModule: "synaptics"

Can someone tell me how to make it work? thanks...
