HP 2133 Mini

Unlike on my first install of VL-6 on HP 2133 on the reinstall I can't make the
touchpad work properly. The tap is hyper sensitive. I have changed the numbers
in xorg.conf Synaptics Touchpad to all kind of settings and nothing changes.
It is understood that after each change X has been reloaded.

Here are my present settings after which I gave up and call for help now.

Section "InputDevice"
 Identifier    "Synaptics Touchpad"
 Driver        "synaptics"
 Option        "SendCoreEvents"    "true"
 Option        "Device"            "/dev/psaux"
 Option        "Protocol"          "auto-dev"
 Option        "SHMconfig"         "true"
 Option        "HorizScrollDelta"  "0"
 Option        "VertEdgeScroll"  "1"
 Option        "TapButton1"  "0"
 Option         "MaxTapMove" "0"
 Option         "FastTaps" "false"
 Option         "FingerLow" "0"
 Option         "FingerPress" "0"
 Option         "FingerHigh" "2"

Can somebody please tell me what to do that the "tap" is if possible disabled.
That how I had it on first install, tap somehow disabled. Now it is so sensitive
that I cannot even feel that I tapped.

I have to admit that I barely understand what all is meant in
man /usr/share/man/man4/synaptics.4
I just took a guess.

Thanks & regards

which Vector version is this?

The newer versions in include automatic configuration by running vxconf

On your advice I run vxconf again which did not change the sensitivity of the
touchpad. Only after adding the line:

Option         "MaxTapMove" "1"

in xorg.conf was I back as before, meaning no tap action on the touchpad.

And I had added that line in the first place after the advice earlier further down
on Portable VL.

Such are the mysteries of Linux.
