Re: Dell 700m Touchpad problem - TAP isn't recognized



Ben,

asuming dells use synaptics touchpad, which it certainly sounds like, compile 
in a synaptics driver, or install the synaptics deb ( i found compiling it to 
be simple and reliable). 
apt-cache search synaptics yields (on Sid) :
cpad-kernel-dev - Kernel header for the Synaptics cPad driver
cpad-kernel-source - Source for the Synaptics cPad driver
ksynaptics - A KDE application to configure Synaptics TouchPad
qsynaptics - A QT application to configure Synaptic TouchPad
tpconfig - configure touchpad devices
xfree86-driver-synaptics - Synaptics TouchPad driver for XFree86 server
