Customizing Synaptics Touchpad Buttons
I have acer has two synaptics touchpad.

1.) The actual touchpad with left button+right button+ 4 way scrolling key.
2.) Media touchpad, with Play/Pause+Stop+Back+Forward media control.

when i installed Ubuntu, the scrolling on the touchpad (and for the 4 way scroll key) wasnt working...the 4 way key was just acting as right button and button 3...

I made some custom UDEV rules and finally got the scrolling part working...

so now my touchpad scrolling (both Horiz & Vert) are working.
My 4 way key is working fine

BUT the media touchpad (its just like media keys, just that it doesnt have hard/soft button, but its another Synaptics Touchpad) doesnt work.

When i press my Play/Pause button, it does same as my mouse's right key..

i need help to be able use my PlayPause, stop, etc button to control totem and rhytmbox...

I come to with a lot (really a lot) of hope. Please guide me.
