Issue with mouse [Ubuntu 13.04]/Chrubuntu}

Link to this post 20 May 13

I have the Acer C7 Chromebook running Ubuntu 13.04. In Chrome OS you put both fingers on the mousepad ( I guess that's name.. ) to right click, well in Ubuntu you have to click on the right side of the pad and sometimes it gets hard do a double-finger scroll. I was hoping ( even though this should be in Ubuntu forums ) if someone could help out. It's not a rare problem in chrubuntu that I've noticed but if there is a fix I'd be grateful! When I get home I'll try to work on the issue when I get the chance and hopefully try to get in double finger right-clicking with the scrolling :(.

Thanks!

It looks like you want more advanced functionality out of your synaptics touchpad, a basic explanation of configuration items can be found at http://askubuntu.com/questions/82740/help-configuring-synaptics-touchpad , I also have saved the configuration file that I use for my CR-48 chromebook running slackware at which includes comments for most options at http://pastebin.com/bmETqb9k , you can use that as a base for your configuration.

Hey! Thanks! :D Will try to work on it. But anyone that reads this please try to help out. I'm still kind of a noob in some areas.
