This package provides an input driver for the X.Org X server to enable advanced features of the Synaptics Touchpad including:

* Movement with adjustable, non-linear acceleration and speed * Button events through short touching of the touchpad * Double-Button events through double short touching of the touchpad * Dragging through short touching and holding down the finger on the touchpad * Middle and right button events on the upper and lower corner of the touchpad * Vertical scrolling (button four and five events) through moving the finger on the right side of the touchpad * The up/down button sends button four/five events * Horizontal scrolling (button six and seven events) through moving the finger on the lower side of the touchpad * The multi-buttons send button four/five events, and six/seven events for horizontal scrolling * Adjustable finger detection * Multifinger taps: two finger for middle button and three finger for right button events. (Needs hardware support. Not all models implement this feature.) * Run-time configuration using shared memory. This means you can change parameter settings without restarting the X server (see synclient(1)). * It also provides a daemon to disable touchpad while typing at the keyboard and thus avoid unwanted mouse movements (see syndaemon(1)).

I have used this driver on Cinnamon, KDE, and MATE. I have had the same issue of the left button acting as the right, has anyone reported this?

As others reported a year ago, touchpad is WAY too sensitive and configuration slider seems to have no effect. This is on 64-bit Mint 18 Cinnamon 3.0.6 on a Dell Latitude E4310.

configuration settings are missing; having problems with sensitivity; cursor jumps all over and functions get triggered at random.

Can't. change sensitivity. Can't configure timeout for suspend while typing. Together this makes it pretty useless - cursor still jumping all over the show when typing which makes laptop very frustrating to use.

It brings out the best in any touchpad, but you can’t avoid manual work: http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/1361

it doesn't show up after installation and my NEC laptop's touchpad is still not working. I don't know what else to do.
