Default Touchpad Side Scrolling for Thinkpad T60
I am new to PC-BSD* and I really like using it. I am wondering if someone else has used it on a Thinkpad T60. Currently, the side scrolling for the touchpad isn't working. I really want it to be enabled as it becomes tedious to scroll up/down windows. I browse the internet a lot so it's really cool if someone can point me in the direction of enabling it.

For the record, it works on default in Ubuntu. I hope that it can work on PC-BSD too.

* I currently have PC-BSD 8.1 installed.

I only have one problem: the touch pad isn't detected. As noted by the wiki, I've tried to copy and configure the .fdi file. However, I had no success. Back when I had Gentoo installed on this laptop...

Noted the same thing on a T400. Trying to figure out what bits to change to enable the side scrolling on the touchpad.

I have successfully installed the synaptics touchpad on a Compaq Presario adding in /boot/loader.conf
Code:
hw.psm.synaptics_support="1"
and installing the Xorg synapticsdrive as explained here

Hope this help.

synaptics on T500 now works ! still wondering how to set up horizontal scroll with bottom edge of touchpad...

i didnt install ksynaptics or any of the sort, just added the hint in loader.conf and then added the device identifier for synaptics with psm0.

i could set it up after a long wait !
