Re: mode not supported

I think I've been working on too many touchpad problems recently. The command I wanted you to run was xrandr, not xinput.
The monitor specifications will probably be available on some website. I'll get back with the "xorg.conf" file after I check a few things.

Re: [SOLVED] restore keybindings after suspend

zariskij, Do you have the link to the site where you got the information for the line: DISPLAY=:0.0 ; export DISPLAY Was the line "sleep 3;" part of the line above or did you add it? This script may be very useful since I often read in posts on this forum about problems after resuming from suspend a...

Re: restore keybindings after suspend

From looking at the output of running "gsettings list-schemas", I can see that the method I wanted to use won't work because Mint KDE has different schemas than Mint Cinnamon and Mate. The schema I needed to use is "org.gnome.settings-daemon.peripherals.input-devices", which is not listed. Another m...

Re: Touchpad Tapping - Stops working after suspend resume

anandrkris,

If you happen to look at this topic again, I noticed that you added the "sh" file extension to the end of the "touchpad-settings" file name. I left
it off this time because I didn't think it was needed to execute the command but did you find that it was required?

Re: Touchpad Tapping - Stops working after suspend resume

I assume you were using the command "synclient TouchpadOff =0". First copy the lines below: #!/bin/sh synclient TouchpadOff=0 Then create a script in your "/home/user-name" directory named ".touchpad-settings” or whatever. The dot in front of the file name makes it hidden. Replace "user-name" with y...

Re: Waking up from suspend

girlggc, On some laptops such as Dell, you can try these two methods. Check in the BIOS and disable Intel SpeedStep if it is present. You could also try creating a script that runs during resuming from suspend that uses vbetool, which can save and restore video card states. First copy the code below...

Re: Touchpad Tapping - Stops working after suspend resume

anandrkris, I don't know the exact reason the touchpad tapping is disabled after resuming from suspend or hibernation but from what I've read, it can be caused by a conflict with the mouse daemon. What command are you using to restore the touchpad tapping action. Is it one of these? synclient Touchp...

If you look at your values: Synaptics Finger (278): 12, 15, 128 The 278 is the id # of the property and the three numbers after it are the values for FingerLow, FingerHigh, and FingerPress.
