Description Mark Watts 2011-04-20 18:08:58 EDT
(Note: this also affects Fedora 15 Beta LiveCD)

Dell Latitude E5520 laptop; touchpad is detected as a PS/2 mouse, so none of the touchpad specific settings appear.

Tap to click does work although simulated middle clicking and side-scrolling do not work.
