Debian :: HP 8460p Laptop - Configuring Synaptics TouchPad

May 27, 2011

I have an HP 8460p laptop and have installed Debian(!) Squeeze. The Synaptics TouchPad works, but I am unable to adjust the configuration (primarily pointer speed/acceleration). I have installed package xserver-xorg-input-synaptics according to this Debian wiki page: [URl] My Synaptics device: tyler@titanium:~$ egrep -i 'synap|alps|etps' /proc/bus/input/devices N: Name="ImPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad"

Output from synclient and syndaemon: tyler@titanium:~$ synclient -l Couldn't find synaptics properties. No synaptics driver loaded? tyler@titanium:~$ syndaemon Unable to find a synaptics device. I have tried building /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/synaptics.conf and restarting but nothing changed: Section "InputClass"

[Code]....

I also examined [URL] and I just couldn't get very far to understand what was wrong, or what I needed to do.

Debian Hardware :: Synaptics Touchpad Drivers Don't Work On New Laptop?

May 26, 2011

I just installed Debian on my new VAIO VPCS13. It seems to be working for the most part, except it does not recognize my Synaptics touchpad at all.

I've had Ubuntu installed on this computer before and the mousepad worked fine. This being Debian on a new-generation computer, it makes me think that Debian just probably hasn't released the update yet.

Debian Hardware :: Synaptics Touchpad - Can't Tap (Wheezy 7.2 LXDE)

Feb 4, 2014

I had a question about how to configure wheezy 7.2 on a laptop with a Synaptics touchpad. As installed, the touchpad is recognized; I can move the mouse pointer with it, and even scroll vertically with the touchpad's scroll strip. However, it won't let me tap or double-tap on the pad to emulate mouse clicks, like I can in other OSes. I am running the LXDE desktop on Debian Wheezy 7.2.

And, there is no configuration that I can find for the Synaptics touchpad in the default setup; I looked all through the menus.

So far, I've tried a few suggestions I've found while searching. I installed a GUI-based config program called "GPointing Device Settings", and *some* of the settings in that program seem to work with the Synaptics touchpad, but others, like the tapping settings, don't.

One point of confusion for me is that some of the solutions I've seen mention a folder /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/synaptics.conf; however, on my system, there is no xorg.conf.d folder underneath /etc/X11, and in fact, I can't find that folder anywhere on the system. The page I was looking at is here: [URL] .... does LXDE use a different X setup than other desktop environments?

Debian Hardware :: Synaptics Touchpad Simply Not Working?

May 26, 2015

I recently installed Debian with the Xfce desktop environment on my Toshiba Satellite laptop and my Synaptics touchpad simply does not work. In fact, it was not even working in the Debian graphical installation.

I verified that the touchpad is enabled by going to Applications --> Settings --> Mouse and Touchpad. I also verified that I had the requisite drivers by running Code: Select allsudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-synaptics. Finally, /var/log/Xorg.0.log did not reveal anything unusual, though the output is quite long and was difficult to navigate. Here is the output of Code:

Select allcat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep Synaptics:

Debian Hardware :: Synaptics TouchPad Jumps To Right Edge?

Feb 10, 2010

after finally being able to find the right configuration file for the Synaptics driver (I still think the change from HAL to udev was too silent...), I have gained the ability to configure my TouchPad. One Issue has been bothering me for a long time now: When moving the cursor from left to the right, at a certain position the mouse cursor jumps to the right edge of the screen.Here is the output of synclient while moving the finger constantly from left to right to illustrate the issue:

[code]....

Note that the value of RightEdge was changed by me in order to see if it has something to do with the issue. It has not, the cursor jumps at the same position, regardless of this value.

Debian Hardware :: SYnaptics Touchpad - Tapping Not Working

Mar 27, 2011

Since when I installed Debian, I couldn't manage to make the tapping function of this touchpad work on my laptop - a Dell Latitude C610, with Debian squeeze. As suggested on [URL], I created a xorg.conf file with

Xorg :1 -configure

After that, I opened the file for editing it. There was no line regarding the Touchpad. The closest to that I found was

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse0"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "auto"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5 6 7"
EndSection

I tried adding the lines on [URL] ... C_Xorg_7.5 to the file, but it didn't work. I also tried installing gsynaptics but, even though the tapping function was enabled there, it didn't work. A weird fact is that vertical scrolling with two finger touch is working, but not tapping.

Debian Hardware :: PS/2 Synaptics TouchPad Detected As Mouse?

Jun 23, 2011

I'm running Debian Squeeze on an HP Pavilion dv6-6040ca. The touchpad featured is relatively new, which is likely the root of my problem. The touchpad with its winblows driver features a backlight, two mouse buttons (buttons,not dedicated touchpad space), and an 'on/off' switch/zone in the top left of the touchpad. The touchpad zone works well for pointing, but no gesture support. The touchpad's tap/click feature works way too well, which is very frustrating. The touchpad is detected as a mouse, so there is no option in System->Preferences->Mouse for a touchpad. Both mouse buttons function as expected. The 'on/off' switch/zone does not function, nor does the backlight.

The only feature I really need is the ability to turn off the tap/click feature, as it makes typing a nightmare. It's gotten to the point where I wrote a shell script to toggle the loading/unloading of my psmouse module (which isn't a bad solution, but I don't want my general account having access to modprobe).

Here are some details:

/proc/bus/input/devices
cat /proc/bus/input/devices
I: Bus=0017 Vendor=0001 Product=0001 Version=0100
N: Name="Macintosh mouse button emulation"

[code]....

I'm using the proprietary ATI driver (couldn't do 3D with the open driver), and I'm using a proprietary wireless module for my RaLink wireless adapter.

Passing parameters to the psmouse module
Unloading the psmouse module
Trusting HAL entirely (no xorg)

[code]....

also the xorg input synaptics driver is installed. Now here's the fun part where the obvious things I've overlooked are quickly pointed out to me.

Debian Hardware :: Synaptics Touchpad Settings In Xorg Have No Effect

Feb 16, 2010

I suppose this thread has been created over a hundred times in the history of this forum, but yet it seems like I cannot find any solution to it. Nor has the Debian IRC-channel been able to channel the requiered information to me so I'm comming here as sort of a last resort.So my issue is that, as described in the topic, none of the settings I set in /etc/X11/xorg.conf have any effect on the touchpad. Other settings in xorg.conf such as color-depth for the screen and driver for the graphics card have effect but not the touchpad section. And if I make a syntax-error in the xorg.conf file X doesn't want to start, which is a clear indication that it's using that config file.

Debian Hardware :: Synaptics Touchpad - Nasty Errors In Xorg Log

Jun 16, 2010

I'm having some trouble with my synaptic touchpad. Actually I think it is kind of working (I only use the trackpoint) but it gives me these nasty errors in Xorg log. I'm running Debian squeeze with 2.6.32-5-686 and Xorg 7.7

I've read some posts concerning touchpads (click) and the links within, but nothing seems to help or I'm doing something wrong. Hope you can bring some light to my darkness. Here some infos (I've renamed some files to .txt to ensure that they will be displayed in the browser): Xorg.0.log /etc/udev/rules.d/66-synaptics.rules xorg.conf /proc/bus/input/devicesCan someone tell me why the touchpad cannot be found by X? I already tried various configurations but nothing solved my problem so far.

Debian Hardware :: Acer Aspire One - Synaptics Touchpad Not Working At All?

Apr 1, 2011

I tried to create an xorg.conf because I didn't have one already. I put the configuration for the synaptics touchpad in it and in the gnome preferences/mouse my touchpad actually was recognized by its name. But still it didn't work :/ I tried deleting my xorg.conf and making a xorg.conf.d directory with synaptics.conf because I saw someone recommend it in another thread. But now the gnome/mouse settings doesn't see it and it still doesn't work. I've read several threads from Arch Linux's forums saying it may be that the module is loaded twice, but I really have no idea.

Here's the /proc/bus/input/devices:

I: Bus=0011 Vendor=0002 Product=0007 Version=01b1
N: Name="SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad"
P: Phys=isa0060/serio1/input0

Debian :: Mouse / Touchpad And Keyboard Not Working After Configuring Xorg

Jul 31, 2011

I was trying to tweak my video card's performance by configuring the xorg.conf file. There were many lines unrelated to the card there; so, to make the file cleaner, I decided to delete all the sections except the one I was dealing with. Obviously I shouldn't have done that. After rebooting the system, all the hardware that provided human interface stopped working. Now I have to find a way to delete that xorg.conf file. The computer is still connecting to the internet, and I have another computer running Debian available. Is there a way to access the broken computer with the other one?

Fedora Hardware :: Not Able To Enable Synaptics Touchpad

May 8, 2010

Okay here is a good one. I am running KDE and i am trying to use the instructions found here [URL] to enable the touchpad tapppping. I have done it this way before successfully but now i seem to be having a problem. When i started all i had was a 10-synaptics.fdi file that just had the word synaptics on it...then when i tried to modify it the only change that took place were the addition of 1 2 3 after it. I've tried over and over with different editors with the same result and no touchpad tapping.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: How To Configure Synaptics TouchPad

Oct 26, 2010

I have a new HP ENVY 14 laptop with OpenSuSE 11.3 installed, running the Gnome desktop. The laptop has a Synaptics TouchPad. By default, many of the touchpad settings are turned off, e.g. single tap to click. I'm trying to set them in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-synaptics.conf code...

I've verified that the settings I'm trying to set work when I set them using synclient, e.g. synclient TapButton1=1 enables tap to click.

I'm brand new to Linux and OpenSuSE so I'm not even sure this is the preferred way to set up my touchpad. I'd appreciate any help diagnosing this problem.

Fedora Hardware :: Synaptics Touchpad Working Intermittently?

Aug 25, 2010

I'm running F13 on an HP-dv6 with a Synaptics touchpad. I have not had any problems with the touchpad until the latest kernel upgrade to 2.6.33.8-149.fc13.x86_64. Now, intermittently with no obvious cause, yhe Synaptics driver fails to load at boot resulting in a dead touchpad. I've tried altering my xorg.conf with no results. The error message I get during boot when this happens is:

Code:
unable to query Synaptics hardware I've done some Googling as well as searching these forums and have found several suggestions, none of which seem to work. I already have /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-synaptics.conf which reads:

Code:
##
Section "InputClass"
Identifier "touchpad catchall"
MatchIsTouchpad "on"
MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
Driver "synaptics"
Option "TapButton1" "1"
EndSection

When it works it works great. Just seems to be no rhyme or reason for it. When it's not working and I try to run synclient I get an error that the synaptics module is not loaded. I'm wondering if anyone else has had this problem, or is it just me?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Synaptics Muliti-Gesture Touchpad On 11.2

Jan 24, 2010

To cut to the chase, I have an ACER Aspire 8735G-6502, a fairly new model. I'm having issues configuring the multi-gesture to the touchpad to do any of the gestures. In fact when more than one finger is placed on the pad, the pointer flies around the screen in a random pattern. Does anyone have advice on either the configuration of the gestures, or a way of disabling any gestures and just having it be a single digit (classic) touchpad.

Fedora :: Synaptics Touchpad: Multitouch Works In Ubuntu / Windows

Jul 3, 2010

I just found out that many Synaptics touchpads are capable of multi-touch and it's possible to do 2-finger scrolling and more.I have enabled this functionality in windows and I am sure now that the touchpad inside my laptop is capable of that.In Fedora 13 (64-bit), however, I was unable to make it working. I found a guide for Linux (Ubuntu) right here:URL... In Ubuntu it multitouch worked without problems after following the guide.

I first thought that I screwed something up on my Fedora and downloaded/ran live Fedora 13 64-bit disk to see if this trick will work with Fedora intact. After trying that guide in live Fedora CD I quickly found out that I couldn't enable multitouch the same way as on Ubuntu.I have no idea what could be different. Both Fedora and Ubuntu had Synaptics driver installed on live CDs (and on my installed Fedora too).

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Display And Synaptics Touchpad Configuration - (getting Black)

I want make two simple changes in my display (energy management) & synaptics touchpad configuration:

1.Prevent the display from turning off (getting black) after 1 minute. Of course I checked the energy management configuration, but that has no effect at all.

2.Turn touchpad tapping off. I read Synaptics Touchpad - openSUSE, but the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf does not exist, but only /etc/X11/xorg.conf.install (or is it the same?). Also, there is no section with "driver synaptics" in it. Its content is

Slackware :: Synaptics Touchpad Not Working On Initial Cold Boot?

Jan 10, 2010

What happens is on first boot, my Synaptics touchpad is not being recognised by the Kernel, so I have to boot a second time when it will start working.I have followed and tried loads of advice from different threads, including the copying and editing of the 11-x11-synaptics.fdi file under etc/hal/policy. Also the psmouse proto=any trick. The rmmod and further modprobe of psmouse. Restarting both HALD and UDEV both later and earlier in the boot procedure . The results of all of which is the same. The touchpad only works on second and subsequent warm boots.Below is the output of cat /proc/bus/input/devices for cold and warm bootCold boot

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Enabling Touchpad Tapping (synaptics) - Why Disabled By Default

Aug 24, 2010

To all those who hit this after installing 11.3: Enable the tapping function of your touch pad by adding Option "TapButton1" "1" to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-synaptics.conf. then restart X (relogin). It will work with all WMs for which SuSE didn't bother to add a GUI config function/utility (xfce, WMaker, twm/fvwm, etc).

To SuSE: WHY? Why is this disabled by default? Why has a system/HW function to be enabled at WM level?? Why only KDE/Gnome?

General :: When Switch Buttons In Synaptics Touchpad - Tapping Gives A Right-click Menu

Jan 23, 2010

I work on a laptop and typically have a USB mouse plugged in. Each time I start an X session, I switch my mouse buttons with an: Quote:

xmodmap -e "pointer = 3 2 1"

If I decide to unplug the mouse and work with the touchpad, I must always reverse the options again to pointer = 1 2 3, or else, while the right and the left button still work as a left-handed mouse, tapping, instead of acting like a left-click, gives a right-click menu. My touchpad is listed as:

'ImPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad'
using the evdev driver.

I admit that I haven't played much with alternate xmodmap configurations, but I'd like to sort this out. It's even more confusing since I don't have a xorg.conf and, if I manually add one, despite having tried repeatedly, I can't make X-server to read it.

The relevant part of lshal output: Quote:

Ubuntu :: HP Touchsmart Tm2 - Synaptics Touchpad Is Unusable - Change The Brightness Will Kill The Screen

Dec 17, 2010

I installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my laptop and encountered several issues.

1. The Synaptics touchpad is nearly unusable. It is impossible to drag while holding down a button. The cursor will move randomly across the screen instead. It is impossible to right click; a right click is treated like a left click. Double-tapping the dot in the corner does not disable the touchpad.

2. Attempting to change the brightness will kill the screen. The computer is still functioning, and it is possible to perform tasks "blind." Only the screen becomes completely blank.

3. Ubuntu does not always boot up reliably. When it does not, the screen is blank but the computer is otherwise responding.

4. The screen is black after suspend.

5. The computer will sometimes hang when shutting down (showing desktop background). Possibly related messages in dmesg:
