Which xorg
« on: April 04, 2015, 09:23:15 AM »
Hi, which xorg app do I need to enable the touchpads scrolling capabilities?  There are only about 11 different ones.  Thanks in advance.  Jim

Did you exit X and restart after loading the extension?

What make of touchpad do you have?

What does Xorg.0.log say?

Hi-hi,  yes I did restart the machine several times to no avail. 

Windows Vista says it is a Synaptics TouchPad v7.0 on PS/2 port.

I could not locate the Xorg.0.log file, although I did find it on a different distro that the touchpad works on.

It's at /var/log/Xorg.0.log

If you have a synaptics touchpad then xf86-input-synaptics should work with Xorg-7.7

Negative result.  2 files at that location and they are autologin and wtmp.

in that case Xorg-7.7 is not running - is it possible you're using Xvesa (the default with CorePlus)?

What does this give:
Code: [Select]
$ ps aux | grep X

You need to use Xorg-7.7 for the touchpad driver to work.

Download and load the Xorg-7.7 extension using the apps gui or "tce-load", exit to the prompt and then "startx"

Sounds like you need to create a conf file in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d

You can either use synclient/syndaemon or google one to enter manually.

..you might also want to check that the files in /usr/local/share/X11/xorg.conf.d are not interfering
