laptop touchpad configuration


i am running suse 10 on a dell d610 with an alps touchpad. in firefox the bottom of the touchpad is used to go forward or back one page if your finger slides in either direction. i was wondering if there was any way to disable this. also i was wondering if the touchpad sensitivity could be increased. thanks - jason

Are you using the Synaptics driver in your xorg.conf?

If so, try adding this to the mouse config in your xorg.conf, this will turn off horizontal scrolling
Code:
Option      "LeftRightScrolling"    "off"
Option      "HorizScrollDelta"      "0"
For sensitivity try playing with the MaxTapTime variable
Code:
Option       "MaxTapTime"     "180"
Check out the man pages for "synaptics" and "synclient"
