TouchFreeze

   0.2.5  

KDE System Tool

Score 81%
TouchFreeze
zoom


Link:  Link
Depends on  Qt 4.x
Downloads:  1861
Submitted:  Jul 1 2007
Updated:  May 13 2010

Description:

TouchFreeze docks in your system tray (KDE/Gnome) and disables button click events while typing.
It's similar to ksynaptics if you know that but more simple.

Differences:
  • no configuration of the touch pad

  • ksynaptics ranks high on powertop


  • no additional dependencies but Qt4


  • Please read http://qsynaptics.sourceforge.net/index.html for more information!




    Changelog:

    0.1
  • initial release


  • 0.2 pre
  • dropped Xevie (too buggy, too insecure)
    read my post on the mentioned homepage


  • 0.2
  • Pau Garcia i Quiles patch adds an "enable" menu entry"

  • cleanup for getting it in Intrepid


  • 0.2.1
    adding GPL3 license to each source file (important for packaging)

    0.2.3
  • improved UI

  • driver version detection

  • option to bypass typing delay completely


  • 0.2.4
  • patch sent by Kel Modderman fixes segfault with newer Qt versions


  • 0.2.5
  • patch send by Jon Nelson fixes buggy path of synclient binary which could cause segfaults under certain distros esp. SuSE



  • LicenseGPL

     starts twice

    Great app, thanks a lot. But if I put it in .kde/Autostart it starts twice if it ran the session before. Is there another way to ensure that it starts automatically with the start of kde?

    yes just dont put it in the autostart folder.
    as long as it keeps running until your logout, it will be restarted.
    shouldnt that be the desired behaviour?

     high cpu load

    Hi,

    is it normal that thouchfreeze ranks as high in top? I get always 5 to 20 % CPU load from touchfreeze (on a quite fast Core 2 Duo)

     Problem

    Nice app, on my pc it does not use much CPU.However it does not seem to work for me: when run as root->

    start typing
    Float properties not available.
    stop typing

    It does not deactivate the touchpad when writing.
    when run as user it gives me the seg fault, which I see has been fixed in the latest release. But the other problem?I'm on 0.2.3 and 1.2.1 touchpad drivers, with latest Qt

    does synclient work for you?
    run synclient TouchPadOff=1 to disable and 0 to reenable the touch pad
    If it fails then you are suffering of a driver or configuration problem.

    Thanks. Yes, the described procedure works, but what should I do with it? Is it only to check drivers work properly?

    Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
     Yes, unity is alien technology!
     It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
     Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
     Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
     Gnome 3 default shell is much better
     I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
     None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
