synaptics: disabling taps etc, change scrollin.. and more
 
hey

i just configured my synaptics driver (i wanted to be able to scroll using the rightmost and bottom part of the touchpad)

these are the options i put into xorg.conf:

Code:

  Option "LeftEdge" "130"
  Option "RightEdge" "840"
  Option "TopEdge" "130"
  Option "BottomEdge" "640"
  Option "FingerLow" "7"
  Option "FingerHigh" "8"
  Option "MaxTapTime" "180"
  Option "MinTapTime" "110"
  Option "ClickTime" "0"
  Option "EmulateMidButtonTime" "75"
  Option "VertScrollDelta" "20"
  Option "HorizScrollDelta" "20"
  Option "MinSpeed" "0.40"
  Option "MaxSpeed" "0.65"
  Option "AccelFactor" "0.030"
  Option "EdgeMotionMinSpeed" "200"
  Option "EdgeMotionMaxSpeed" "200"
  Option "UpDownScrolling" "1"
  Option "CircularScrolling" "1"
  Option "CircScrollDelta" "0.1"
  Option "CircScrollTrigger" "3"
  Option "VertEdgeScroll" "on"

was working fine for the first 5 minutes but later i noticed that sometimes tapping doesnt always work, i get random pointer freezes, and scrolling works a bit too far away from the right touchpad border (even if i move my finger from up to down like half an inch away from it, it's interpreted as scrolling - which IS IRRITATING AAAARGHGHGHHG)

im confused with all these synaptic options, thats why id like to ask someone more experienced for help: is there any way i can disable tapping (i use the buttons anyway) and only leave scrolling turned on? how do i make it work only a bit closer to the border so i dont scroll up/down accidentally all the time?

thanks A LOT
