Acer Aspire S3+XORG and jumpy touchpad pointer

I just installed new gnome on my laptop and it was cool and nice to play with. However, in the default installation,touchpad is really annoying and the pointer is jumpy and will surely affect your productivity.

I solved this problem by modifying synaptics.conf under my /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/.

[mmara@r3d3ye ~]$ sudo vim /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf

Adding on my config file did the trick.

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "Bye bye jumpy touchpad pointer"
        MatchIsTouchpad "on"
        Option "MinSpeed" "0"
        Option "ConstantDeceleration" "5"
