Touchpad won't tap-click
I am running Fedora Core 2 on an HP laptop. Tap-clicking on my touchpad doesn't seem to work (altho it works fine with Knoppix). I was told to look at Qsynaptics and it looks like it may help but i have a few questions.

What is X11? Do i have it/need it?

Do i need to install the synaptics driver first?

X11 is the server on which your graphical apps run. If you have KDE or GNOME installed, then you also already have X11 installed; specifically, since you use FC2, you most likely have an X11 server from - the packages will be called xorg-*

Take a look at the tuxmobil site for more info on touchpads!

What exact laptop model do you have? If you have an ALPS touchpad (as on the HP nx9105 and Compaq R3xx series) you will need to apply a kernel patch from the Synaptics driver package.
