Hi, Here is additional information: * No xorg.conf, no synaptics In fact, without any xorg.conf, the synaptics driver is not loaded. Considering that the driver provides expected functionality (scrolling), the fact that it is not loaded is a bug (for me, so I rise the severity to normal). * reconfigured xorg.conf, no synaptics I then tried to reconfigure my xorg.conf using # dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg which hadn't configured the synaptics driver. The simplest configuration which allowed me to have right-side scrolling was the following (simply added lines): Section "InputDevice" Identifier "Touchpad" Driver "synaptics" Option "CorePointer" EndSection Then, with that lines in the xorg.conf (before or after the normal "Configured mouse" is of no importance thanks to the CorePointer option - otherwise, it should be put first), I get normal right-side scrolling and fully normal comportment with an external USB mouse. So, in both cases, the above configuration should be used (either without xorg.conf or in the xorg.conf generated by dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg). Best regards, OdyX P.S. I don't know if the bug is filed under the correct package and I suspect it to be duplicate of #451537. -- Didier Raboud, proud Debian user. CH-1802 Corseaux email@example.com
