touch pad not working properly


hi people,

i have made some research on to get my touch pad and usb mouse working on my laptop with slack 9.1.
well i was almost successful.

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Pointer"
Driver "mouse"
Option "CorePointer"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
Option "Protocol" "ImPS/2"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "SendCoreEvents" "true"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "8 10"
EndSection

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Simple Layout"
Screen "Screen 1"
InputDevice "Pointer" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Mouse1" "SendCoreEvents"
InputDevice "Keyboard1" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection

usb mouse has to problems
well touch pad moves, but when i try to move it it constantly clicks right or left mouse button by itself. well if it is the double tab thing i don't need that, i can use the touchpad as a pointer and the buttons to click so not really need for double tab to click. well still if anyone knows a solution on how to fix this please help. or just how to disable the double tab to click with the touch pad so it doesn't do crazy.


thanks in advance

Try Modifying the configuration files to

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Pointer"
Driver "mouse"
Option "CorePointer"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
Option "Protocol" "auto"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "SendCoreEvents" "true"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection

& see if it improves anything
