Wary: flsynclient fixed

Wary 0.6 testers reported an error message when Flsynclient (the Synaptics touchpad configuration GUI, PET created by Jemimah) is started:

Can't access shared memory area: SHMConfig disabled?

I examined /var/log/Xorg.0.log and found that the Xorg Synaptics module was failing. Wary was compiled with the Synaptics driver version 1.0.0, so I compiled the latest, 1.2.2. However, Flsynclient then gave this message:

Incorrect size of shared memory area. Incompatible driver version?

I then compiled the Synaptics driver version 1.1.3, and now Flsynclient works.

Note, I downloaded the Synaptics drivers from here:

Quirky Fans
I am a Quirky Fan because it is very stable than Puppy 5.1 but Wary 0.6 is much stable than Quirky.

I hope there will be many things new in Quirky

I read a vulnerability here

flsynclient not fixed
5.1.2 still has the error

Can't access shared memory area: SHMConfig disabled?

How do us newbies get this fixed?
