How to enable my touchpad to be fully functional on Debian?

After setting up my system to work and configuring it, my touchpad’s tap-to-click is disabled by default. I followed the Debian wiki guide on enabling tapping through creating a conf file but now I cannot scroll vertically or horizontally. After reviewing online for multiple answers: creating new sections in xorg.conf and using a configuration utility. I’m not sure what’s the definite solution is, but here’s my xorg.conf file which I’ve generated earlier:

Section "ServerLayout"
 Identifier "X.org Configured"
 Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
 InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
 InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
 EndSection
Section "Files"
 ModulePath "/usr/lib/xorg/modules"
 FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/misc"
 FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/cyrillic"
 FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/100dpi/:unscaled"
 FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/75dpi/:unscaled"
 FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/Type1"
 FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/100dpi"
 FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/75dpi"
 FontPath "/var/lib/defoma/x-ttcidfont-conf.d/dirs/TrueType"
 FontPath "built-ins"
 EndSection
Section "Module"
 Load "record"
 Load "dri"
 Load "glx"
 Load "dbe"
 Load "dri2"
 Load "extmod"
 Load "synaptics"
 EndSection
Section "InputDevice"
 Identifier "Keyboard0"
 Driver "kbd"
 EndSection
Section "InputDevice"
 Identifier "Mouse0"
 Driver "mouse"
 Option "Protocol" "auto"
 Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
 Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5 6 7"
 Option "VertTwoFingerScroll" "1" # multitouch
 Option "HorizTwoFingerScroll" "1" # multitouch
 Option "VertEdgeScroll" "1"
 EndSection

I only included the relevant sections, this isn’t the full file.

If you have any advice or ideas for me to try, I would really appreciate it.
