<pre wrap="">I did something kind of stupid, when I first installed Gentoo, I left my
usb optical mouse connected to my laptop. After install that mouse
works fine, but the synaptics touchpad does not. Any good hints on how
to make it work? I've emerged synaptics, but that hasn't help, so there
must be something else. Should I rebuild my xorg.conf file?
<pre wrap=""><!---->This isn't a gentoo-amd64 question, but my guess is that your xorg.conf
points to the usb mouse. The synaptics probably comes up as a normal
psaux mouse. Simply adding another mouse device section should do it.
Google should be able to find this for you. ("synaptics device section")
don't forget to enable Device Manager in kernel (multidevice...)<br>
