TouchPad problem on my Thinkpad R61i
I'm running a FreeBSD 7 with Xfce4 on my Lenovo (IBM) ThinkPad R61i and I have a problem setting up my TouchPad.
I installed Synaptics drivers from my ports tree and it doesnt seem to be working. There seems to be a problem with recognizing my TouchPad.
So, here are some of the outputs, logs, config file editing, etc...
dmesg | grep psm0
psm0: <PS/2 Mouse> irq 12 on atkbdc0
psm0: model Generic PS/2 mouse, device ID 0
/etc/X11/xorg.conf file ->
Added: "moused_enable="NO"" ( without these double qotation marks )
Added: "hw.psm.synaptics_support=1" ( without quotation marks )
(EE) Synaptics_Touchpad Found no Synaptics, found Mouse model 0 instead
(EE) Synaptics_Touchpad no synaptics touchpad detected and no repeater device
(EE) Synaptics_Touchpad Unable to query/initialize Synaptics hardware.
(EE) PreInit failed for input device "Synaptics_Touchpad"
This is a part of my Xorg.0.log and i think this is the main problem. I found on an Gentoo forum that there might be a problem with my touchpad as it says here:
Thank you in advance.
in http://ph.ubuntuforums.com/, there is a thread,
which, when the parameters (no time to copy them here) are set to match yours, might fix your problem.

I managed to "bypass" the problem using the moused instead of Synaptics. Works like a charm. Well, more or less.
The problem is "tap to click" or "sidescroll" don't work at all. Resolution setting is acticng a little weir. I just can't set it the way i like, either its too slow or too fast, but I'm getting used to it.
If you don't use tap and Synaptics don't work you wont mind working with moused.
