GNU/Linux Elementary OS: my X11 synaptics settings for lenovo thinkpad t450s t450 t460s t460 X1 t470 t470s x250 x260 x270 (touchpad cursor accelleration like OSX)

1) make sure synaptics driver is used instead of libinput
(see /var/log/Xorg.0.log and look for libinput and synaptics)

apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-synaptics
apt-get remove xserver-xorg-input-libinput

2) When synaptics is running, try these settings for osx-like accelleration:

root@t450s:~# cat 
synclient MaxSpeed=4.5
synclient MinSpeed=0.25
synclient AccelFactor=0.015
synclient RightButtonAreaLeft=4500
synclient RightButtonAreaTop=3500
synclient RightButtonAreaBottom=5000
synclient FingerLow=25
synclient FingerHigh=30
