Default NO SYNAPTICS TOUCHPAD SUPPORT IN DELL INSPIRON 5100
Guys,

My touchpad used to work in previous BSD versions. I'm happy to report that my laptop "mountroot" problems were solved with PCBSD .8.2, but, my touchpad is no longer working and I have to use a USB mouse temporarily.

Is this an easy "xfree86" editing thing, or is there something wrong with the way the PCBSD is recognizing my laptop's touchpad?

Need help on it.

still having the touchpad problem guys. Anyone figure out what went wrong? I can't seem to maneuver in KDE like I used to in Windows without mouse.

SOLUTION FOUND HERE. EASY EDIT to fix.

Kris, could you make sure this issue is fixed before 1.0. My touchpad used to work before .8.1, but somewhere along the updates, this issue was not resolved. Maybe the contents of this thread will help in stabilizing this issue.

Can't wait to see FreeBSD 6.0 and KDE 3.4.3 added to the PCBSD install

Good work!
