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