Debian :: Tapping On Laptop Touchpad Not Working

May 14, 2010

Install Debian Squeeze onto Thinkpad T410. Got the basic things working and noticed that - movement of touchpad results in moving of mouse pointer, which is correct, but - tapping on the touchpad does not simulate a click action. Confirmed that the touchpad hardware is working by booting into a CrunchBang LiveCD. how I can enable the touchpad tapping action?

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 :: No Place To Enable Touchpad Tapping EeePC

May 1, 2010

I have an EeePC 1000HA with Debian squeeze, and I can't seem to find the option to enable touchpad tapping. Is there a certain config file for the synaptics-touchpad driver I need to edit?

Oct 19, 2014

I've installed Debian Wheezy on my HP G62 notebook. In windows the touchpad worked well with all features. But now I can't turn the touchpad on/off by tapping on the LED, which doesn't shines. Also I can't use the double click feature.

Debian Configuration :: Synaptic Tapping - Left Side Of The Touchpad Is Not Enabled For Vertical Scrolling

Dec 2, 2010

just installed debian squeeze KDE after years of ubuntu and suse.. For some reason, after I finally got both scrolling and tapping to work, I have a weird weird touchpad through my xorg.conf: - tapping on a tab in chrome closes the tab.

- tapping in a text field pastes txt that is in the clipboard, each successive click keeps pasting the same thing

- the left side of the touchpad is not enabled for vertical scrolling (?), and for some reason the directions are inverted (move finger up to scroll webpage down)

- when having multiple windows open, tapping that window will highlight it, but the previously selected window stays overtop of the now selected windows. Using the actual left click button the windows change normally.

Debian Configuration :: Sid: Laptop Keyboard + Touchpad Not Working After Upgrade?

Apr 13, 2011

on my netbook I have a Debian unstable/sid system. A few days ago I did an apt-get (dist-)upgrade which I think also updated the X-Server. Since then my netbooks keyboard and touchpad are not working as soon as the desktop is started (I think gdm).
The Keyboard works during the Grub selection and also in recovery mode (Root Terminal), so I'm sure its not a hardware problem. Could it be that the X-Server unloads the kernel modules for those two devices?Also if I plug in a USB keyboard or mouce they are working.

Fedora Hardware :: No Tapping And Scrolling In Touchpad

Jun 20, 2011

I have a HCL K21 pdc notebook. When I install Fedora 15 KDE then there is no tapping and scrolling of touchpad. But the cursor is moving. It does not work in Live CD as well as in installaton. I have updated F15 to full but still no luck. Touchpad : Synaptics The buttons below the touchpad are working and all the options in system settings are enabled

Note : I have read a forum in which touchpad is detected as ps/2 mouse. So I tried to disable the ps/2 mouse but it disable the cursor movement of touchpad, so it may be some kind of problem!

OpenSUSE Hardware :: 11.4 Gnome Enable Touchpad Tapping?

Mar 11, 2011

I'd like to ask a way to enable touchpad tapping permanently in gnome. I have installed gsynaptics, it starts up with gnome, but every time I log in, I need to go to Control Center->touchpad and enable tapping manually. In openSUSE 11.3 the default behavior was that if you enabled once, it remains so. Also it would be great that tapping to be enabled by default ( like in Ubuntu ), because not everybody knows how to enable it.

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?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Simulate Left Click On Touchpad (tapping) - Configure?

Oct 22, 2010

I have acer aspire one netbook with synatics ps2 touchpad. It works fine, but I'd like to emulate left button by just pressing somewhere in the touch area (same as it works in windows or ubunntu). I think this is called tapping. How can I configure that? I have been in touchpad settings and management, but I have not found any checkbox helpful. In OS 11.3 I need to press left button next to the touchpad.

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:

udi = '/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/platform_i8042_i8042_AUX3_port_logicaldev_input'
info.capabilities = {'input', 'input.mouse'} (string list)

Hardware :: Laptop Touchpad Not Working - Function Key Automatically Activated On Restarting Ubuntu?

Dec 10, 2010

Everything was working fine when my laptop got shut down after a battery failure. Now, on restarting, the computer hangs at the login screen. If I close the lid and reopen it, the keyboard seems to work and I can enter password and login, but the touchpad doesn't work at all and all the functions that were to be performed while holding the function key seems to happen automatically (For eg. when I press 0, another key gets typed). Perhaps the drivers are't getting loaded properly, I don't know. The same story is there no matter how many times I restart. I am using Ubuntu 9.10 and the laptop is Dell Vostro 1525

Ubuntu :: Found That Two Finger Tapping Touchpad Has Gone From Middle Click To Right Click?

May 1, 2010

I'm newish to the forum, but have been using ubuntu for the past few months.I recently upgraded from eeebuntu (a 9.04 derivative) to 10.04, and found that two finger tapping my touchpad has gone from middle click to right click, (and 3 fingers is now middle instead of right).

From what I've seen, this has been changed since 9.10, but I haven't been able to find a permanent solution yet. Most fixes have been from before and use hal, or other things that don't exist anymore. The one thing I've found does work is using xinput and the command

Code:
xinput set-prop "ETPS/2 Elantech Touchpad" "Synaptics Tap Action" 2, 3, 0, 0, 1, 2, 3

But that has to be run every time I start up, and it occasionally reverts while I'm using the computer. I've tried making a script that runs at startup, but neither adding it to the list of startup programs, or autostart folder has worked, but running the script file manually does work. I'm a bit at wits end with this, it's the only issue I've had with 10.04, and I've spent many many hours trying to get it to work (I've also tried gsynaptics and the newer version whose name escapes me right now). Hopefully there's a permanent fix out there.

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"

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.

Ubuntu :: Touchpad Stops Working After Pressing The Touchpad Toggle Button

May 7, 2010

I am running Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx LTS. My laptop is an HP Pavilion TX1210AU (TX1000 series). After disabling the touchpad using the toggle button and reenabling it again, it stopped working. I tried restarting my laptop and the mouse worked again only up to the Login Screen. After logging in to my account, the mouse froze again. I tried making a new account and tried logging into it (I'm using it now) and it's now fixed. Does Ubuntu change any user settings everytime the touchpad toggle (on/off) button is switched? Maybe I could just reenable it myself.

Debian :: Touchpad Enable / Disable Key Not Working

Nov 27, 2010

Since last Saturday (11-20) my touchpad enable/disable key stopped working.I don't make much use of the touchpad and it usually stays disabled most of the time so I can't be sure it is really on Saturday that I lost this functionality or maybe the day before (I'm positive it's not longer than that).Before that it worked flawlessly, now it's like a dead key (which is not broken by the way, tested on a live CD).In these past week I have been looking for quite some time for other users who might have experienced this problem after the update of two specific packages (console-data and keyboard-configuration) I had on the 20th and which made me think might have broken the key binding.Not finding anything at all and after having tried for said packages both newer versions from sid and previous known-to-have-worked-before versions from the install CD, I started thinking the problem was not there (I consequently restored the testing ones).

The days before this happened I tinkered a little bit with gpointing-device-settings and tpconfig (this last one was a simple tpconfig -i), but at this point I start thinking there might have been something else I've done, somewhere else I can't recall probably.

Oh, I forgot to mention that the touchpad still works flawlessly, I can enable/disable it through gconf (actually I made two handy shortcut to the "/desktop/gnome/peripherals/touchpad/touchpad_enabled" value), so it is not an issue of making it work, just the toggle key which on my laptop is a dedicated one (no Fn modifier) and anyway all the other special keys still work fine.I checked gnome-keybinding-properties and there is no action for the touchpad there, but I don't know for sure if there was one before (and I haven't been able to add one). Anyway in gconf I noticed a key in "/apps/gnome_settings_daemon/keybindings/touchpad" has the value "XF86TouchpadToggle", not sure if that means the keybinding exists or what.

What more can I add? What I'm here to ask now is some guidance on figuring out what I might have done wrong considering what I was able to tell you, but mostly, considering what I wasn't able to tell you and am not even aware to have done.

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 :: 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?

Debian Hardware :: Touchpad Not Working During Install - Delay After Typing

Feb 24, 2016

The first might be a libinput issue (I believe it's new within the last year or so): After typing, two-finger scrolling does not work until a delay of what seems to be a full second or more has passed. It's not a movement threshold issue, since wild movements don't fix the issue, nor is this delay experienced without first typing.

Note that moving the pointer and clicking with the touchpad work immediately after typing. Only two-finger scrolling seems to be delayed.

The second issue is that the touchpad does not function whatsoever during installation. Using the graphical installer, I have to rely entirely on the keyboard to navigate.

Output of lspci:

Code: Select all00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Haswell-ULT DRAM Controller (rev 09)
    Subsystem: Dell Haswell-ULT DRAM Controller
    Kernel driver in use: hsw_uncore

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
