35 The <application>Xorg Synaptics Driver</application> package contains
36 the X.Org Input Driver, support programs and SDK for Synaptics
37 touchpads. Even though the evdev driver can handle touchpads very well,
38 this driver is required if you want to use advanced features like multi
39 tapping, scrolling with touchpad, turning the touchpad off while
40 typing, etc.
