I will modify the document since it mentions a MaxTabTime and MaxTabMove when it should be MaxTapTime and MaxTapMove as mentioned in the man pages of synaptics.

The package "ksynaptics" is not in the package database for the default repositories or the community. gsynaptics is in community, which I will note in the article, but I'm not sure what to do about the kde tool.

Well, add ksynaptics as well. Even though it is not in the repos, someone may still want to obtain and compile it. It is available from AUR, and most archers, I presume, use or know how to use AUR. --Foxbunny

Settings in xorg.conf/10-synaptics.conf don't seem to take effect

I noticed that none of my settings changes in xorg.conf seemed to take any effect until I made sure the synaptics_i2c module was loaded. I'm not putting this into the page since it could've been a coincidence, but it's worth noting for anyone having problems. --Skarphace (talk) 05:21, 6 September 2012 (UTC)

ALPS touchpads

The article says that kernel 3.3 fixed the detection of ALPS touchpads (among others). I am running kernel 3.6.10 and my ALPS touchpad was not detected until I installed psmouse-alps-driver from the AUR. Therefore I suggest to rewrite the paragraph accordingly to say: "Some touchpads (e.g. ALPS, ...) need additional drivers to work. Install package X for touchpad Y." Any opposing arguments?
