Synaptic touchpad tapping issue


I'm running Slackware 10.1 on an hp pavilion ze4900 (ze4901 us), and while I've gotten the touchpad working for the most part, I have two rather annoying issues.

1. I cannot get tap-to-click working at all.

2. It seems to have designated the bottom part of my touchpad to do horizontal scrolling, which I really dislike and want to disable.


I'm using the drivers from http://web.telia.com/~u89404340/touchpad/

I'm also using the ksynaptics tool from http://sourceforge.net/projects/qsynaptics, but enabling/disabing the tap and hscroll options doesn't do anything, it seems.

xorg.conf configuration as follows:

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
Option "Buttons" "5"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Synaptics Mouse"
Driver "synaptics"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/event4"
Option "Protocol" "event"
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 "HorizScrollDelta" "0"

Option "MinSpeed" "0.09"
Option "MaxSpeed" "0.18"
Option "AccelFactor" "0.0015"
Option "SHMConfig" "on"
# Option "Repeater" "/dev/ps2mouse"
EndSection
Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Simple Layout"
Screen "Screen 1"
InputDevice "Mouse1" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Synaptics Mouse" "AlwaysCore"
InputDevice "Keyboard1" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection

2.6.10 kernel. Any suggestions?
