While trying a simple search whether Xorg supports this device:

the 4-button USB touchpad, probably with "synaptics" driver, I couldn't find any RECENT (2011-2012) discussion.

Is it recognized with the latest sources from (mouse, evdev, synaptics)?

Do the 4-buttons work? The scroll?

Do the "advanced gestures" work?

Thank s.
