After Kubuntu 9.10 is installed, my synaptics touchpad is lacking two-finger horizontal scrolling, and also two-finger tapping and three-finger tapping are set reversely with my preference. Your KCM plugin is just the ideal graphic tool I'm looking for to fix the situation and it really does well what it says. So thanks a lot for developing it!

KDE should really incorporate this, since there has long been touchpad configuration tools on Gnome, but not so mature on KDE.

 Karmic PPA?

I am a happy user of this tool on Kubuntu 9.10. The only issue I see is that the ppa repository currently only has the Jaunty packages (9.04) which will work on 9.10. However some useres might get confused about this. Any chance of getting a Karmic feed for this AWESOME tool?

 Values not applied on startup

Hi, I've got a problem, that the pad sensitivity setting won't apply after clean KDE startup. I have to open the kcm and set the sensitivity again to make it effective. Although the value is remembered and preset correctly, just doesn't apply after startup...

Sorry for late answer, but I haven't had much time for this project.
This will be fixed soon, I promise.

 Extra Feature?

 by moonrise on: Dec 11 2009

I'd like to suggest a feature that I've seen on other systems that I use and like. Is it possible to have a setting that will disable the touchpad when an external mouse is plugged in?

Yes, I'm going to implement this feature, but at this moment I don't have time for working on this project. I can't predict when next release will be ready, but please be patient - I'm not going to cancel kcm_touchpad.

 kde4 integration

thanks for your wonderfull app. please try to get this into official kde4 realease!

I also encountered a few very nice synaptics options which I would like to get integrated:


These allow very easy "tap and drag" operations over longer distances (when the touchpad space is not big enough for the drag).

also nice would be options for disabling touchpad when another mouse is plugged.

for me the option to disable touchpad while keyboad is in use is greyed out. and the tapping timings/pts seem to have no influence.

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.
