The touchpad on the kogan agora seems pretty sensitive – however there is an app that can help – gsynaptics. This app does however require that SHMConfig be enabled.
To do this, open a terminal and enter:
sudo gedit /etc/hal/fdi/policy/shmconfig.fdi
and in the file that opens, place the following text:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<match key="input.x11_driver" string="synaptics">
<merge key="input.x11_options.SHMConfig" type="string">True</merge>
Now you can install gsynaptics:
sudo apt-get install gsynaptics
The final step is to reboot, so that SHMConfig is enabled. Once rebooted, you will have a new item in your Preference menu, “Touchpad” (which is gsyanptics).
