HP dv6-3210US touchpad - only left button recognized

I am running opensuse 11.4, with updated KDE (4.8 from release repo). The xorg log shows that synaptics touchpad is recognized and driver is loaded. The touch and gestures ( 2 and 3 finger) work - so I can simulate right mouse click with 3 fingers now. The synaptiks module in KDE shows only left button, middle and right are missing.

However, the 3 buttons are recognized in opensuse 12.1 so it must be the version of xorg. I need to use 11.4 for technical reasons ( 12.1 doesn’t work for me).

Any suggestions on getting right button to work ?
