Hi all,

I had a similar problem some months ago with my SuSE 9.0 Pro: the PS/2 mouse worked fine but the touchpad didn't. Now both work correctly.
Some hints: edit /etc/X11/XF86Config, section "InputDevice" for Driver "mouse" and make sure you have:

Option "ButtonNumber" "5"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

I found very useful to have this line included, instead of hardcoding a protocol:
Option "Protocol" "Auto"

Also check if you have multiple sections for Driver "mouse" and if so, which one is selected in section "ServerLayout"

Sorry if I did not get this first time round.
My HP pavilion ze4600' touchpad/mousepad worked great in 9.0.
Now on a fresh 9.1 it is no longer. Must I recompile the kernel?
I do not see any kind of laptop options in KDE or Yast. Sorry I can't
find the Emails to previous question as my monitor crapped out on me.

Thanks in Advance.

I also noticed in the 9.1 live eval that the touchpad works fine for
moving the mouse, but tapping the touchpad does not work. I assume that
is a driver issue that can easily be solved.

Just a 'me too':

Fujitsu-Siemens Lifebook C-4135

Upgraded 9.0 -> 9.1, tapping doesn't work anymore :(

Maybe it's related to the version of X?

Does *anyone* have touchpad tapping working?

Whatever rocks your boat!

That function disappeared when I installed the 2.6.5 kernel, with SuSE 9.0.
