Why not enable it in xorg itself - from memory you can look for a file
like /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-synaptics.conf (or possibly in
/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf or similar)
Then ensure that you have a section like:
Identifier "touchpad catchall"
Option "TapButton1" "1"
Option "TapButton2" "2"
Option "TapButton3" "3"
Option "VertEdgeScroll" "on"
When you boot you should have touchpad buttons available even at the
KDM greeter stage for login - (I guess same for GDM though I am a KDE
Perfect! I'll give that a try soon, but it looks just like what I wanted.
I figured there was something like this, but hadn't snooped around yet --
this will save me much time. Thanks!
I have been doing this for several years with my laptops....
I'm relatively new to owning a laptop. Used them for years at work but
those were bungled with Windoze. Win7 lived all of about 5m on my Samsung
before something worthwhile (F17) was installed after which it immediately
soared in value by a factor of nearly infinity. :-)
