A patched Synaptics Driver for XFree 4.x. based on a driver from Peter Österlund.
The original driver can be found at:

  • Stand-alone (C. Scott Ananian, 1997, no longer maintained).

  • Stand-alone (Bruce Kall, 1998-2000, based on the above). (Link seems to be dead by now)

  • XFree86 driver (Stefan Gmeiner, 2001, parts derived from Ananian/Kall work).

  • XFree86 driver (Peter Österlund, 2003, based on the above).

This patch has now moved in the official release, so you should get the latest version from the official homepage!
