Synaptics Touchpad in Fedora 9

I have been using Fedora 9 from a long time and it really kick’s ass but i was facing the problem that my Touchpad was not working with it but the i found the solution here

The easiest was will be to install the package http://atrpms.net/dist/f9/synaptics/

or you can do it manually here

edit the /etc/X11/xorg.conf

gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Added the following to the ServerLayout Section

InputDevice “TouchPad” “CorePointer”

add a new section:

Section “InputDevice”
Driver      “synaptics”
Identifier  “TouchPad”
Option      “SendCoreEvents”
Option      “Protocol” “auto-dev”
Option      “SHMConfig” “on”
Option “TapButton1″ “1″
Option “TapButton2″ “2″
EndSection

all done logout and login again and everything should be working fine

Update: found the rpm package here
