I've recently discovered all of the wonderful configuration options that exist for my laptop's Synaptics touchpad. However, for the

What do you want to change? I have one, it scrolls and clicks ootb.
What else should it do? Apart from move the mouse pointer?
For example, what is "EdgeMotion"? I wanted to avoid asking for
particulars, because there's always another question. Judging from the
lack of response, the document that I'm looking for does not exist :-
(The (exhaustive) list of options is in synaptics(5).

When I move my finger around in and from the "middle" of the touchpad, the mouse cursor moves.
When I move my finger on the (user's) right side, the window scrolls.
EdgeMotion would be tuning that behaviour.
I can also tap, for mouse-clicks.

I don't know what else works on mine, I need to read the man page at the laptop.
I have a high-end ThinkPad R40 (as evidenced by its fittings), and also
has a three-button+joystick "ultranav" device.
