Configuring synaptics and alps pointing device on VGN-FZ31Z April 14, 2008

Posted by maxmil in : Debian,VGN-FZ31Z , trackback

By default my mouse pointer was a bit slow when i installed X on my Sony VIAO.

To remedy the situation the option AccelFactor of the synaptics driver came to my rescue. In addition i find the VertEdgeScroll option (which allows you to scroll by moving your finger up and down the right hand side of the touchpad is really useful too).

My /etc/X11/xorg.conf section for the touchpad now looks like this

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Synaptics Touchpad"
Driver "synaptics"
Option "SendCoreEvents" "true"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
Option "Protocol" "auto-dev"
Option "HorizScrollDelta" "0"
Option "AccelFactor" "0.050"
Option "VertEdgeScroll" "true"
Option "SHMConfig" "true"
EndSection
