Not that I need it, but is there anybody out there, who can build it?

Same thing here. openSUSE x64.
The exact same error.

I don't know what's wrong. These definitions should be in X11/extensions/Xinput.h and X11/extensions/XI.h. It seems files exist, but don't contain definitions.

Here's what I can tell you.

Both files are present on my installation, under /usr/include/X11/extensions.
They are provided by package xorg-x11-proto-devel. Indicates version 7.4-1.39.

My x11-input-synaptics is on version 0.15.2-5.23.

I can send you the change logs for both packages if needed, so that maybe you can see the differences between these and the ones you are using.

This is openSUSE 11.1, x64, latest update, KDE 4.3.2.

Ok, here's an update.

I updated my xorg-x11-proto-devel package to a newer one on the repository http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/X11:/XOrg/openSUSE_11.1/ and I am now able to see the symbols in the said files.

I don' t get the same error. Now the error occurs in linking. So I think I have to upgrade my Xorg before trying again.

I'll let you guys know how it goes.

Alright, worked.
But now I have to find out why my screen keeps tearing so much. Damn it.

Anyway, thanks for the great tool.

Great app!! Thanks for developing!

There's only one thing, that does not work with my touchpad: The Smart Mode (typing disables touchpad) What do I need for that?

Greets, Onlinelli

Currently "Smart Mode" has to be implemented. I know this is longed-for option, so it's at top of my features list.

Sorry for wildering you all.

Just cooperate with the author of http://bitbucket.org/lunar/synaptiks/wiki/Home
Your KCM and his "smart mode" program complement each other nicely.

 Why not in KDE4?

 by dan77g on: Nov 4 2009
Score 50%

After installing on Kubuntu 9.10, and doing a quick test, I'd say that this is not an app - it's an essential part of the core KDE release.

How the hell is it not in KDE4 by default?

Thanks to you, Michal, for your work.

It's not in KDE4 by default, because nobody has requested for this :). First of all app have to go to playground and then be accepted by "magic council of KDE4 developers" ;) (seriously I don't know who is doing a review). KDE 4.4 is "soft freezed" so kcm_touchpad wouldn't be released with it by default for sure.
I will make some strides to include this app to default KDE4, but just not now.

I am requesting it. It doesn't have to go the playground, but you may want to start in extragear. To go to kdebase were it belongs you need to add it to kdereview. If nobody reviews it, it is automatically assumed accepted.

KDE 4.4 is closed now though, so I suggest trying for extragear/base

 Stored settings / AccelFactor

 by pmwisse on: Nov 11 2009
Score 50%

Thanks for a wonderful tool. I've installed it on my wife's pc, but it seems settings are not stored an ignored by X when restarting KDE or coming back from sleep.

In addition, I miss a slider for modifying the accelfactor. I've noticed that this is one of the crucial settings on certain touchpads.

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.
