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:
grep clickpad /var/log/Xorg.0.log
should spit out something like this:
[ 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:
