the touchpad on my laptop is acting strange in on BT4 R1, by the looks of it sensitivity is set way too high (pointer jumps around and also double tap is a major issue). in my mouse options no touchpad tab exists, i tried "sudo apt-get install synaptics" but the result is
Code:
root@bt:~# sudo apt-get install synaptics
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package synaptics is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
However the following packages replace it:
  tpconfig
E: Package synaptics has no installation candidate

Code:
sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-synaptics

xserver-xorg-input-synaptics is already the newest version.

my xorg.conf reads as follows

Code:
# xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
#

# values from the debconf database.
