FC2 & laptop touchpad


Hi all.

Has anyone had any difficulty with FC2 on a laptop? FC1 worked 100% great on the laptops I have been testing it with.

However after loading FC2, the actual buttons below the touchpads work as they should. The touchpad controls the pointer no problems, however, with the touchpads you can tap your finger on the actual touchpad to emulate a double click. The same laptops work fine with FC1, RH9 etc, and Windows.

I haven't done anything different in the install.

system-config-mouse shows the touchpad as a Wheel Mouse (USB) which is what the previous versions showed it as.

Any ideas?

Thanks alot,

Regs
Craig
