Enable Touchpad Features on Linux Laptop

I have a Samsung laptop that I wiped Windows 8 off and installed Fedora 18 Live Security on. After the successful install and boot, the second thing I wanted to do to make navigation easier and faster was to enable my touchpad to click and scroll using double fingers. Below are the steps I took:

1. Find out the drivers running my touchpad.

2. Create new xorg.conf file called 50-synaptics.conf

3. Copy code to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf.

4. Restart x-server or easer just reboot laptop.
