I have a Dell XPS M1530 Apls touchpad with kernel 3.15.10-201 FC20 x86-64.  It uses edev catachall  pointer, and I can't make it use any other setting.  I have no scrolling on the side or bottom.  Under Fedora 18 it works just find.

*********** MASS BUG UPDATE **************

We apologize for the inconvenience.  There is a large number of bugs to go through and several of them have gone stale.  Due to this, we are doing a mass bug update across all of the Fedora 20 kernel bugs.

Fedora 20 has now been rebased to 3.17.2-200.fc20.  Please test this kernel update (or newer) and let us know if you issue has been resolved or if it is still present with the newer kernel.

If you have moved on to Fedora 21, and are still experiencing this issue, please change the version to Fedora 21.

If you experience different issues, please open a new bug report for those.
