    Default Alps Touchpad

    Does anyone have experience with configuring an Alps Touchpad device in linux? Specifically, I'd like to be able to scroll a window without having to click and drag.

    As for me, i have just installed synaptics drivers from slax.org and everything worked fine(but there were some difficulties in guessing even approximate values for some parameters). Of course, this only works in X, but as i've understood, you don't need this in console.
    Sorry for short answer, i'm not a linux freak and i've only told what worked for me.
    P.S. All info about configuring speed, widths and heights of scrollbars, etc can be found by `man synaptics`

    Bit old, but I'm curious about the same thing. The windows driver allows for t he touchpad to be disabled when an external pointer is present... anyone got any iedea on how I might accomplish that?

    Just a FYI, that may save someone hours of frustration.
    To enable the synaptic touchpad on my laptop I had to
    install the synaptic driver, edit xorg.conf see, xorg.conf-synaptic for example and the most important part

    Be sure to read the message about why it was IMPS in the first place!
    Then Xorg would see the mouse as a synaptic and load the driver.
