KSynaptics is a control center module that enables users to take full advantage of their mobiles' synaptics touch pad. It depends on the XFree's synaptics driver and offers the following features:
*adjustable pressure sensitivity
*tapping configuration / smart tapping
*mouse button emulation
*circular scrolling
*smart mode

Check it out, if you prefer Qt, there's also an Qt-based version available.


DEVELOPMENT STOPPED - READ http://qsynaptics.sourceforge.net/
You can use touchfreeze instead...

NEW: ksynaptics 0.3.3
* new mouse button icons
* syndock would run in smart mode even if disabled in ksynaptics

NEW: libsynaptics 0.14.6c and ksynaptics 0.3.2
libynaptics has been rewritten and breaks backwards-compatibility (API and ABI).
Now the nasty syndock crash on KDE logouts should be addressed.
Please install libsynaptics prior to ksynaptics, I really do hope there's enough time left that feisty will get official debs in their repos :)

NEW: proposal for a new UI design which will be introduced by the next Qt4-based qsynaptics release.
Please drop me some comments on how to
change/improve it.
And yes, I really could use some helping hands there :)
(Note that you need to compile it with Qt4 and libsynaptics, though no functionality is implemented yet!)

* libsynaptics 0.14.6b fixes an autotool related compiler problem, please use it instead of 0.14.6a

NEW: libsynaptics 0.14.6a
* supports latest synaptics driver

NEW: libsynaptics 0.14.5a (debug)
* supports latest synaptics driver

NEW: ksynaptics-0.3.1 & libsynaptics 0.14.4d

fixing use cases when
*no driver is installed
*wrong driver version is installed
*no shm access possible
fixing message boxes
disabling menu items in syndock if pad is not accessible
disabling menu items in kcm when pad is not accessible / switched off
adapted to upcoming libsynaptics 0.14.4d
fixing a compilation issue with XOrg in libsynaptics

NEW: ksynaptics-0.3.0

*smart mode has been rewritten
*kcm and syndock depend on libsynaptics
*many bugfixes
*special thanks to mETz (Stefan Gehn) for working on syndock!
*code cleanups / bugfixes

NEW: ksynaptics-0.2.4

*added german translation to ksynaptics.desktop
*added syndock.desktop for autostart on login (which is the recommended way to do it!)
*improved german translation

*adapted to latest driver release ( 0.14.4 )

*adapted to new libtool version
*added a warning text to the "general" tab page

This is a maintenance release without new features for those who want to use the latest (0.14.4) driver version.
If you use 0.14.3 you have to keep to ksynaptics version 0.2.3!


libsynaptics is an effort to eliminate version related problems in ksynaptics by providing upwards compatibility above new Xorg touch pad driver releases. This version of the library supports the latest driver version (0.14.4) only and will be updated on each driver release.
This release is done for experienced users and developers only, this is no new ksynaptics release (although the new, soon-coming ksynaptics release will depend on it!).
I encourage people having the latest driver version installed to download and test this version, and send me some feedback, for ensuring a less-buggy 0.3.0 release :)

hi - thanks for your work on ksynaptics. it's just what i need to keep from accidentally clicking with my touchpad, but unfortunately it introduces a different problem. on my dell inspiron 6000, with feisty kubuntu and ksynaptics, the pointer drifts up and left whenever i tough the touchpad (with or without moving my finger on the touchpad). apparently i am not alone: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=432694
(search "drift" in the pages).

it may be a problem specific to dell. do you have any suggestions? thanks again.

does this problem occur even when ksynaptics is not being run?

You can eliminate that problem by simply clicking on the "scrolling" tab, and at the bottom where it says "On An Edge", uncheck "Cursor Movement"

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
