This post is a request for assistance from anyone who is running a PC with a clickpad.

I may have found a way for Puppy to easily detect a PC that has a clickpad installed, which is a step along the road towards getting a clickpad to work with Puppy without the need for the user to edit a configuration file.

If you have a clickpad, this command:
Code:
grep clickpad /var/log/Xorg.0.log

should spit out something like this:
Code:
[ 48.833] (II) synaptics: Synaptics Mouse: found clickpad property

That shows that the clickpad was detected when the X server started.

But in order for Puppy to set the correct options when it generates the xorg.conf file, we need to detect it before starting the X server.

I would be grateful if any user with a clickpad would post the output of these two commands:
Code:
cat /sys/class/input/mouse*/device/name
cat /sys/class/input/mouse*/device/properties

This would allow me to verify how the properties data is formatted.

I thought I should add that the touchpad works fine in Fatdog 6.01. Right-clicks like a charm.
