Seems that the synaptics driver is broken when used with Xserver git:
(II) Synaptics touchpad driver version 0.14.6 (1406)
(--) Synaptics Touchpad auto-dev sets device to /dev/input/event1
(EE) xf86OpenSerial: No Device specified.
Synaptics driver unable to open device
(EE) PreInit failed for input device "Synaptics Touchpad"
(II) UnloadModule: "synaptics"
Relevant lines of xorg.conf:
Identifier "Synaptics Touchpad"
Option "CorePointer" "true"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
Option "Protocol" "auto-dev"
Option "SHMConfig" "true"
Option "HorizScrollDelta" "0"
This is against xserver and synaptics git HEAD.
The touchpad works, but in legacy mode with no enhanced features like
on/off or vertical scrolling. Near as I can tell some Xinput API has
been changed but I am at a loss as to how to fix it. Ideas, anyone?
