Hi,
I'm hoping someone can give me some advice on configuring my synaptics touchpad. It's working fine, but when I use two fingers to do a vertical scroll I have to move them almost 100% vertically up or down (without any movement to the side). I'm usually a little sloppier then that, and on Windows it seems if the movement is mostly vertical the scrolling kicks in.

Does anyone know what synaptics variable I need to play with to change this?

Hi,
this is my "InputDevice" Section for the Synaptics touchpad in /etc/X11/xorg.conf. It work enough well for the few I use the touchpad. You can adapt and try it as a single file section in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ directory.
Code:
Section "InputDevice"
    Driver     "synaptics"
    Identifier "Souris Synaptics 0"
