Apologies for the long post but it is along and sad story
I have enough ram (8Gb) on this laptop.
Maybe all the problems are related to my inabillity to disable the touchpad.

(I pushed Cntl-C otherwise it would have been a few lines of these)
sorry, that was meant to be 'system X11 functions without
As you can see in the above line sometimes the keyboard misses a pressed
key ('sye' - must have been 'system') and sometimes it repeats keys. Other
times, like when I work in Emacs with more than one buffer in split windows,
the cursor jumps to another frame and the typing continues in another
On my previous laptop (Thinkpad R61e) I could use the following to disable
`/usr/bin/synclient -l | sed -ne
's/(TouchpadOff *= *)()/2/p' | sed -e 'y/01/10/'`"
Now when I try this I get 'Couldn't find synaptics properties. No synaptics
I have created a /etc/X11/xorg.conf with the following contents:
Identifier "SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad"
Option "LeftEdge" "1700"
Option "RightEdge" "5700"
Option "TopEdge" "1700"
Option "BottomEdge" "5100"
Option "FingerLow" "25"
Option "FingerHigh" "30"
Option "MaxTapTime" "180"
Option "MaxTapMove" "220"
Option "VertScrollDelta" "100"
Option "MinSpeed" "0.09"
Option "MaxSpeed" "0.6"
Option "HorizEdgeScroll" "true"
Option "TapButton1" "1"
Option "SHMConfig" "true"
in the hope that it will load the synaptics driver, but that did not make
Then I installed touchfreeze but that did not solve my problems.
Any idea how to solve this mess?

"And there were in the same country shepherds abiding
in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the
glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were
sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not:
for behold I bring you good tidings of great joy, which
shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day
in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the
Lord." Luke 2:8-11
