gsynaptics on Felicia

Postby Nubby » Sat Dec 20, 2008 9:38 pm

Felicia comes with xorg version 7.4. Meaning: no configuration with xorg.conf. To make gsynaptics work on Felicia, you have to create /etc/hal/fdi/policy/99-x11-synaptics.fdi:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<deviceinfo version="0.2">
<match key="info.capabilities" contains="input.touchpad">
<merge key="input.x11_options.SHMConfig" type="string">On</merge>

Info found on: ... gsynaptics

Ps It would be nice if Felicia autoinstalled gsynaptics and /etc/hal/fdi/policy/99-x11-synaptics.fdi on laptops.

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
