(Possible) error in xfce4-settings/mouse: Synaptics driver is (not) required
Submitted by Bob Collins

In the "Xfce settings -> mouse and touchpad" online documentation I saw this note: "Currently only touchpads using the Synaptics driver are supported."
I don't think this is true. The Synaptics driver has been deprecated in favor of libinput and is no longer being maintained. On my Arch install the "xf86-input-synaptics" package is not installed as a dependency for anything.
