synaptics - no right click, no click+scroll

I'm trying to use synaptics driver on a Samsung Series 9 laptop (90X3A) with Linux kernel 3.1.0.

When psmouse module is loaded, I see this in dmesg:

[ 9907.175524] Synaptics Touchpad, model: 1, fw: 8.0, id: 0x1e2b1, caps: 0xd00123/0x840300/0x120c00
[ 9907.216939] input: SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad as /devices/platform/i8042/serio1/input/input28

It "kind of" works, but I'm not able to do the following:

- right click (I can simulate with two-finger tap, although it feels awkward)
- middle click simulation
- click + scroll (i.e. to mark text or to move a window scroll bar)

Any ideas how can I make these work?

If I load psmouse module with "proto=exps", it works almost as expected, although mouse pointer is very, very slow.
