I had the same experience as DocHiFi above using statler 32 on a Dell Inspiron 6400. The pad worked fine on a fresh install, but after updates and a reboot, scrolling and tap click were disabled.

Re: Synaptics touchpad

What about putting a menu item in the openbox menu that disables och enables the touchpad via     synclient TouchpadOff = 0?
The easy way is to have two, one that says enable and one that says disable. Super key + space brings up the openbox menu, and just navigate with arrows.

Harder way is to have the menu item call a script that determines if the touchpad is on/off and then enable/disable it. Conky could be used to display touchpad on or off. I guess that this can be read from synclients config file, where that now is...
