How do I find out the manufacturer of my touchpad if Xorg autoconfig chose synaptics driver? Specifically, I'd like to find out whether it's an ALPS.

I know synaptics is still the right driver, but some manual option changes are in order, and I can script it if the script can detect the actual manufacturer.

Bonus points for pulling the ID/model number Smiley

Thanks, nightflier  Grin

And when I find a product ID list, the model is there too (Product=XXXX Version=XXXX).

My synaptics touchpad ( Samsung NC10 Netbook) was indeed found on installation, but scrolling seems to not be configured or enabed. Will this require a manual edit of Xorg file? I didn't see anything pertinent under the mouse configuration menu.

@ jpummil: You should be able to create an xorg.conf file by running command "vxconf" (as root). Normally it detects the touchpad and ask if you want it configured.

And btw: this thread has been marked as solved. You're better off starting a new thread than resurrecting an old one. Wink
