Got touchpad to scroll

After upgrading to Slackware 12.2, the touchpad on my laptop was not scrolling. After a bit of googling, I found this thread -
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/slackware-14/synaptics-touchpad-in-slackware-12.2-on-hp-g60-702809/#post3573157

as suggested in the above link, I changed the line
options psmouse proto=imps

to
options psmouse proto=auto

in /etc/modprobe.d/psmouse

then after reloading the psmouse module, and restarting X, my touchpad was scrolling.
