can't get shmconfig to work

Postby infamous on Thu Apr 16, 2009 2:32 pm

I've been trying to config my touchpad to disable while I type but have been unsuccessful. I'm using Mint 6 main. Heres the policy I have created in /etc/hal/fdi/policy/schmconfig.fdi

<deviceinfo version="0.2">
<device>
<match key="input.x11_driver" string="synaptics">
<merge key="input.x11_options.SHMConfig" type="string">True</merge>
</match>
</device>
</deviceinfo>

BUT when I try to launch syndaemon or several other applications for configuring the touchpad I get a message telling me to enable shmconfig. I followed the Ubuntu wiki to create this policy so please do not link that wiki page, I have already gone through it.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

schmconfig.fdi shouldn't that be shmconfig.fdi?
Save and close that file, reboot, and SHMConfig should be enabled.

Thats the first thing I did. Saved my changes and rebooted.

I have also done things according to that wikipage and it worked after reboot... Maybe didn't you forget to add the first line?
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
And did you have that file there already or did you have to create it?

...but actually even if I activated SHMconfig, touchpad does not work. Of course I have enabled it in Mouse and Touchpad settings... So please let us know if it worked, and if not, how did you solve it :wink:
