Question Scrollwheel in touchpad


Anyone knows how to make the wheel in the touchpad works?


I tryed the same as a external mouse

"Option" "ZAxisMapping" "4 5" tryed "3 4" and the only thing that happens is that the part of the wheel of the touchpad scrolls verticaly

any sugestions?

I am using a synaptics touchpad and I have installed drivers for that one. So my xorg.conf-settings are only for synaptics but it may give you a clue. I have vertical scroll at the right side of the touchpad (and I can also use the 4-directional button below the touchpad). Here is my setup:

Code:
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"      "0.09"
  Option        "MaxSpeed"      "0.18"
  Option        "AccelFactor"   "0.0015"
  Option        "SHMConfig"     "on"
  Option        "Repeater"      "/dev/ps2mouse"
EndSection
As you see I do not have to use the "ZAxisMapping", it works anyway. What touchpad do you have? Have you installed any drivers or such?

Regards.

I guess you don't have the driver installed but check out "xorgconfig", if you can choose your touchpad when prompted then xorg has support for it. If not, maybe you can download a driver to install to get xorg to support it. What is the name of your touchpad?

OK. Actually "think" is not really what I was going for, but you can give it a try. Check out http://freshmeat.net/projects/synaptics/ for driver download. You maybe should try to find out some info on your laptop (what is the model name?) and what they us as touchpad before you install the x module for synaptics.
