Hi there,

I've did great configuration using http://en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/Synaptics_Touchpad/Xorg_7.3 (synclient option=x)
Unfortunatelly it was all gone after rebooting system. How to make it permanent?

Thanks!

Some time ago, for a brief moment, it used to be done in hal. Now it's in /etc/X11/xorg.conf like so:

Code:
Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "touchpad"
        Driver          "synaptics"
        Option          "AutoServerLayout"      "on"

        Option          "SHMConfig"             "true"
        Option          "MaxTapMove"            "2000"
        Option          "VertEdgeScroll"        "true"
        Option          "HorizEdgeScroll"       "true"
        Option          "RTCornerButton"        "2"
        Option          "RBCornerButton"        "3"
        Option          "TapButton1"            "1"
        Option          "FingerLow"             "20"
        Option          "FingerHigh"            "35"
EndSection

IIRC, "SHMConfig" has been obsolete since xorg-server 1.8.

Thanks for the tip, and WOW it's been some time since 1.8. I'm just lazy (some say that it's what makes a coder good...), so I usually don't fix what ain't broken. Just like I keep pulseaudio on my home system from the time I tried to connect a source and a sink over local network even though I couldn't get it working. Until it craps on me ;)

SHMConfig may be obsolete, but the conf file will still work if you want to make it permanent. Just remove the SHMConfig line.
