Sub_title: Video too big and touchpad not supported
 

I'm running Puppy Dingo from a USB drive. This is on an Asus eee computer.

Setup with xorg graphics driver

The desktop is too big, with some of the words being conflated (run together and unreadable) and the bottom of the screen cut off.
With Puppy, unlike XP (factory installed) the screen doesn't scroll to accomodate the size of the desktop

Also, there doesn't seem to be any support for the touchpad. It works like a two button mouse, but too fast for the small screen space, so I miss some of the icons or words that I'm trying to select. It's very sensitive

I'd like to adjust the screen to smaller icons and fonts, so the desktop fits within the screen size;
I'd like to adjust the touchpad so it's more customizable for my likes.

Any suggestions?

BTW, my manual is in Chinese, and I can't read it.

reduce, reuse, recycle

sell it to a Chinaman that needs it, use it as scrap paper or to start a fire, turn it back to pulp and make paper out of the pulp.
