Need help with synaptics touchpad

Postby VoltManEXE on Wed Aug 29, 2012 7:55 pm

No matter what I do, I can't seem to fix my touchpad. Left clicking works, tap-to-click works, but right clicking just acts like a left click. I need to click using two fingers every time I want to right-click. This isn't normal, and I would like to get the touchpad working properly under Linux as it normally does under Windows. Also, the touchpad is very glitchy while typing, and it always moves the cursor and clicks somewhere else while I'm in the middle of typing. It's frustrating.

I've tried running “synclient" in the terminal and changing the values there, but that didn't work. I've also tried a few things from this ArchWiki article without any luck: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Touchpad_Synaptics

My hardware specifications can be found here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=ca&dlc=en&docname=c02204326&lc=en#N22

I would really like to make the touchpad behave like it normally does in Windows, because this is one of the only things keeping me away from using Linux full-time.

Thanks in advance!

Edit:
Here's some info from the terminal if it helps:
