Default Toshiba Satellite L550D-11N touchpad drivers?
does anyone know if there is a touchpad driver for a Toshiba Satellite L550D-11N?
the touchpad works, but the scoll-area is not found as such, so I have to drag to scroll.

Are you sure it is a driver? It could be you need a driver.

Or maybe it is a setting in your xorg.conf.

Or maybe it is both.

I don't know what driver you might need but I would look at xf86-input-synaptics or xf86-input-mouse

I assume Kris would have include these drivers, so maybe its a config problem.

It looks like the xf86-input-synaptics driver isn't included in PC-BSD by default. I'll get that added to our snapshots right away.

However in addition to that, it seems you need to enable some other settings in /boot/loader.conf (hw.psm.synaptics_support="1") and some stuff in /etc/sysctl.conf to fine-tune it. The reference threads provided earlier detail most of those config options.

xf86-input-synaptics is there, but via the ports...

Not sure what else to tell you, aside from messing with the loader.conf
/ sysctl.conf variables mentioned in the other threads, I would imagine
some combination of those will make it work properly, just don't have a
way to test it here.
