It works on my computer at least. When loading the psmouse module I
input: PS/2 Logitech Mouse on isa0060/serio2
Synaptics Touchpad, model: 1
180 degree mounted touchpad
new absolute packet format
Touchpad has extended capability bits
-> four buttons
-> multifinger detection
-> palm detection
input: Synaptics Synaptics TouchPad on isa0060/serio4
