I got a similar problem. I had configured the driver via hal, and if
I login to KDE4, every feature I want was enabled. But for Gnome, I
had to run this command every time after started up or resumed from
/usr/bin/synclient TapButton1=1 HorizEdgeScroll=1
It seemd something in gnome disabled those options. Is there anything
I can do to workaround or at least to monitor and find out the one in
gnome who disabled the options?
These are my configuration files:
=========== /etc/hal/fdi/policy/x11-synaptics.fd: ==============
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<match key="info.capabilities" contains="input.touchpad">
<merge key="input.x11_driver" type="string">synaptics</merge>
<merge key="input.x11_options.TouchpadOff" type="string">0</merge>
<merge key="input.x11_options.HorizEdgeScroll" type="string">1</merge>
<merge key="input.x11_options.LockedDrags" type="string">1</merge>
<merge key="input.x11_options.FastTaps" type="string">1</merge>
<merge key="input.x11_options.TapButton1" type="string">1</merge>
<merge key="input.x11_options.LBCornerButton" type="string">2</merge>
<merge key="input.x11_options.RBCornerButton" type="string">3</merge>
=========== This is all I have in /etc/X11/xorg.conf: ===============
