Notice I said ADVANCED options? I find killing the touchpad while typing while still using the alt and ctrl keys with out killing the touchpad a useful feature as is circular scrolling. Once you KNOW to look under xserver-xorg-input-synaptics (really intuitive, that, it should just be /usr/share/doc/synaptics, how are you supposed to know to look for xserver-xorg-input-synaptics?) you can get a basic set up running, but it is nice to look at what others have done to make advanced things work. I think you pointed out that doc to me the last time this came up, as a result, I referenced it to Celejar first. -- Damon L. Chesser email@example.com http://www.linkedin.com/in/dchesser
