    So, it's not that You need 1.7 to have synaptics

    P.S. I just can't figure out (didn't try much) how to improve performance with fglrx in KDE4...
    that is X fault. X was broken for Intel graphics. If you want a fast desktop, you need to unbreak X. After doing that, it flies.

    Search for
    xserver-xorg-backclear.patch

    get the sources for xorg-server, patch them, compile them, install them. Very easy with gentoo. If you are using something else - search your distros forums/mailing lists. I am sure somebody has done something about it.

      Of course you can run older synaptics driver versions. I have a newer type of synaptics touchpad and need the newer driver for full functionality.
