I copied:
/usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/20thirdparty/10-synaptics.fdi
to:
/etc/hal/fdi/policy/
and edited the line to enable SHMConfig.

'Can't access shared memory area. SHMConfig disabled?'

Please, if anyone could help with this. It's making learning/configuring/using a whole new system so much harder when things keep opening up because of unwanted mouse taps.

If I used the 'Paste Bin' correctly, here are the contents of /etc/hal/fdi/policy/10-synaptics.fdi...
