Is there a way to enable kinetic scrolling in Synaptic drivers on Linux?

I don't mind compiling "weird" drivers or kernel modules.

Kinetic pointer movement != scrolling. – LiraNuna Dec 11 '09 at 5:47
    
Um. I didn't say it was. I referenced the link because the OP in the discussion apparently patched the Synaptic driver to have some semblance of kinetic scrolling. – Neil Santos Dec 11 '09 at 11:28

In Syanptics terms it's 'Coasting' rather than kinetic scroll.

synclient CoastingSpeed=0

will fix the issue. Well, you could also add it to your xorg.conf.
