    Hello,

    I am trying to solve some issues regarding touchpad. My Toshiba U400-150 PSU45E has been equiped in ALPS touchpad (instead od synaptics, which is much better by the way).

    Previously I worked on another manufactures laptop with Synaptics and the software for it had advanced options, better than ALPS.

    1. When I use ALPS driver the movement of coursor seems to be little "jumpy", any movement regulations don't help. So I uninstalled ALPS driver, installed Synaptisc and the movement was fluent. However the software for Synaptics did not include all the advanced options (such as touch areas, scrolling, etc). Therefore I restored the driver for ALPS again, and the 'jumpy' movement returned. I assume that the driver is not as good as synaptics.

    2. I need actually emulation for middle button. In synaptisc there was such option in "touch areas". I was using top right corner for emulation of middle mouse button. I was searching for such option in ALPS driver but there is no any .

    I woud be gratefull for any sollutions, suggestions regarding issue 1 and 2. Is there any possibility to emulate middle mouse button in ALPS?

    TIA.

    I have an Alps touchpad on my Tecra and its very smooth, so maybe you just need to update the Alps driver?

    Are you using XP or Vista?

    Vista, however I am pretty sure that the "jumpy" movement depends on the driver, when I use any Linux (liveCD), the movement is smooth.
    I have already updated the driver, didn't help.

    The most annoying problem is that I can not emulate the middle mouse button in ALPS driver.

    Is there any third party software that could do that?
