Might be worth reviewing your dmesg, there are other kinds of touchpad
than synaptics (ALPS for one).  I get something like this:

Synaptics Touchpad, model: 1, fw: 6.2, id: 0x2580b1, caps: 0xa04793/0x300000
Synaptics pass-through port at isa0060/serio4/input0
input: SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad as /class/input/input1

There is some bad or outdated advice out there in Google about the
"SHMConfig" line though, wrong capitalization or something else wrong
with the first advice I found when I tried to get it working.  That one
is pasted from my working config.
