Thank you for checking.

I finally found how to make it work :

1. Install the xf86-input-libinput, which is not installed by default.

2. Edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf to add 2 lines in the section
for clickpads to enable the wheel :

Option "EmulateWheel" "1"
Option "EmulateWheelButton" "2"

The section should look like this:

Section "InputClass"
Identifier "Default clickpad buttons"
MatchDriver "synaptics"
Option "SoftButtonAreas" "50% 0 82% 0 0 0 0 0"
Option "SecondarySoftButtonAreas" "58% 0 0 15% 42% 58% 0 15%"
Option "EmulateWheel" "1"
Option "EmulateWheelButton" "2"
EndSection

While it is nice that it works, I think that on this point the life should be
made easier for the average user.
