My xorg.conf is fine, it worked previously on the same box (just
versions have changed) and sadly, virtual scrolling doesn't works with
I didn't understand what I should enable in rc.conf, what should be
sysmouse ? I don't have any daemon with this name but may be I
misunderstood. I tried using my touchpad as a psm mouse but I can't find
