I checked the xorg.conf and it says "synaptics" as the device and driver name. The touchpad does feel like it's lagging when moving around but all the other features work (right/left click, multitouch etc). I want to fix the sluggishness, and make it smooth and responsive. I've tried the touchpad settings to no avail. Is there a fix for this (if any)?
