Most notably two-finger tapping is interpreted as right-click then. Thus the scripts under '~/.X.d/' have to be re-run.

 +Embedding this all into a shelll alias can be done through the following line in '~/.ashrc' (add more scripts if applicable). 
 +<code>alias s='echo mem | sudo tee /sys/power/state ; ~/.X.d/synaptics'</code> 
 +The latter command is executed after waking up from suspension. 
 ===== Touchpad ===== ===== Touchpad =====
-The touchpad works with two-finger scrolling out of the box. Due to its minuscule size, "middle-tap" (lower right corner) is quite hard to get right. Therefore I prefer to have two-finger tapping be recoginzed. The following code placed in a file 'synaptics' under '~/.X.d/' does it.+The touchpad works with two-finger scrolling out of the box.
