Default Touchpad on the Dell Latitude e6520

Hi!

I recently got a Dell Latitude e6520 notebook, and while Debian wheezy
works in general, I have some trouble with the touchpad. It works
(inkludign tapping), but scroling doesn't. Reading
http://wiki.debian.org/SynapticsTouchpad didn't helped me solve my
problems.

Looking and lsusb I see the following, but I'm not sure, which of them
is my touchpad:

$ lsusb|egrep -v "[hH]ub|[Bb]luetooth"
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 1bcf:2802 Sunplus Innovation Technology Inc.
Bus 002 Device 007: ID 413c:818d Dell Computer Corp.
Bus 002 Device 004: ID 0a5c:5800 Broadcom Corp. BCM5880 Secure Applications Processor


/proc/bus/input/devices says the following:

I: Bus=0011 Vendor=0002 Product=0001 Version=0000
N: Name="PS/2 Generic Mouse"
P: Phys=isa0060/serio1/input0
S: Sysfs=/devices/platform/i8042/serio1/input/input7
U: Uniq=
H: Handlers=mouse0 event7
B: PROP=0
B: EV=7
B: KEY=70000 0 0 0 0
B: REL=3


And "grep -i mouse /var/log/Xorg.0.log" results in the following:

[ 45.318] (==) intel(0): Silken mouse enabled
[ 49.190] (II) config/udev: Adding input device PS/2 Generic Mouse (/dev/input/event7)
[ 49.190] (**) PS/2 Generic Mouse: Applying InputClass "evdev pointer catchall"
[ 49.190] (II) Using input driver 'evdev' for 'PS/2 Generic Mouse'
[ 49.190] (**) PS/2 Generic Mouse: always reports core events

[ 49.190] (--) PS/2 Generic Mouse: Found x and y relative axes
[ 49.190] (II) PS/2 Generic Mouse: Configuring as mouse
[ 49.190] (**) PS/2 Generic Mouse: YAxisMapping: buttons 4 and 5
[ 49.190] (**) PS/2 Generic Mouse: EmulateWheelButton: 4, EmulateWheelInertia: 10, EmulateWheelTimeout: 200
[ 49.190] (II) XINPUT: Adding extended input device "PS/2 Generic Mouse" (type: MOUSE)
[ 49.190] (II) PS/2 Generic Mouse: initialized for relative axes.
[ 49.190] (**) PS/2 Generic Mouse: (accel) keeping acceleration scheme 1
[ 49.190] (**) PS/2 Generic Mouse: (accel) acceleration profile 0
[ 49.190] (**) PS/2 Generic Mouse: (accel) acceleration factor: 2.000
[ 49.190] (**) PS/2 Generic Mouse: (accel) acceleration threshold: 4
[ 49.190] (II) config/udev: Adding input device PS/2 Generic Mouse (/dev/input/mouse0)


So any Ideas, what I can do do activate scrolling (on the right edge of
the touchpad)?


Best Regards,
Alexander

What does dmesg say about it?

Is VertEdgeScroll synaptics option enabled?

Additionally, search the kernel config for "MOUSE_PS2_".
