I just purchased the Asus Zenbook UX31A and I require some advice regarding tuning the touchpad.
Basically my problem is that the mouse buttons are withing the touch area and I would like it to be disabled. Such that only part of the touch area is recognized. I have attached an image to clarify the idea. Basically only the red area in the image should be recognized.
I have two reasons for this request: Firstly, I like to hold my thumb on the mouse button instead of holding it in the air. This is problematic, because touchpad thinks that I'm trying some kind of two finger gesture all the time and cursor stops moving.
Clicking is also problematic since every finger movement — regardless of how insignificant it might be — on the "button" will move the cursor.
I have been playing with some synclient settings like AreaBottomEdge etc. They have some effect but then I cannot highlight text or right button stops working.
How could I solve this?
