Thanks for answers, but still incomplete
I checked lspci and got a short list of items, but nothing about a trackpad. The computer is a Lenovo Thinkpad E520. Don't know if that will help identify it.
I ran a search on sbo for kde-config-touchpad, kde-config, and synaptiks. Nothing comes up. Synaptics pulls up two items, but the only item of the two that makes sense is kcm_touchpad. Don't suppose you could clue me in a bit better?
Edit: The file I mentioned works just fine. I spent some more time learning about it today.
