[PD] Synaptics touchpad input not working

I've tried using [hid] and [linuxmouse] and both objects can open the 
device but no data is output from either object. [MouseState] and 
[cursor] both work but I was hoping to get relative values. Is this a 
driver issue? I'm using Ubuntu 8.04 and Pd version 0.42.5-extended-rc3. 
Here's the console output:

[hid] 0.7, written by Hans-Christoph Steiner <hans at eds.org>
     compiled on Jun 13 2010 at 11:45:43

Device 0: 'Macintosh mouse button emulation' on '/dev/input/event0'
Device 1: 'AT Translated Set 2 keyboard' on '/dev/input/event1'
Device 2: 'PC Speaker' on '/dev/input/event2'
Device 3: 'Power Button (FF)' on '/dev/input/event3'
Device 4: 'Sleep Button (CM)' on '/dev/input/event4'
Device 5: 'Lid Switch' on '/dev/input/event5'
Device 6: 'SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad' on '/dev/input/event6'
Device 7: 'Video Bus' on '/dev/input/event7'
Device 8: 'PS/2 Generic Mouse' on '/dev/input/event8'

Supported events:

[hid] opened device 6 (/dev/input/event6): SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad
print: open 1
print: device 6

Also my xorg.conf has this info:

Section "InputDevice"
     Identifier  "Synaptics Touchpad"
     Driver      "synaptics"
     Option        "SendCoreEvents" "true"
     Option        "Device" "/dev/psaux"
     Option        "Protocol" "auto-dev"
     Option        "HorizEdgeScroll" "FALSE"
     Option        "VertEdgeScroll" "FALSE"
     Option        "SHMconfig" "on"
     Option        "VertTwoFingerScroll" "TRUE"
     Option        "HorizTwoFingerScroll" "TRUE"

Any ideas?
