Description:

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.




Changelog:

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

2005-28-10
*added german translation to ksynaptics.desktop
*added syndock.desktop for autostart on login (which is the recommended way to do it!)
*improved german translation

2005-06-11
*adapted to latest driver release ( 0.14.4 )

2005-19-12
*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

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 :)

Coming soon to a mirror next to you:
ksynaptics 0.3.0

 dependencies

Can you tell me what the exact dependencies of Ksynaptics are? (I mean the actual source packages that it depends on.)
I guess kdelibs is one, but does Ksynaptics also require kdebase? And what about qt-x11?

I need this information because I'm writing a spell for Ksynaptics. Spells are Source Mage GNU/Linux's scripts that install and track packages. SMGL is a source-based Linux distro.

Thanks!

Also, I'd be glad to know the compile-time dependencies of both ksynaptics and libsynaptics. They use gpp, right? What else is needed?

you'll need:

for libsynaptics:
*synaptics touch pad driver
*g++

for ksynaptics:
*libsynaptics
*qt-x11-dev (due to kde)
*kdelibs4-dev


my apt-cache tells:

Depends: kdelibs4c2 (>= 4:3.4.1), libart-2.0-2 (>= 2.3.16), libaudio2, libc6 (>= 2.3.4-1), libfontconfig1 (>= 2.3.0), libfreetype6 (>= 2.1.5-1), libgcc1 (>= 1:4.0.0-7), libice6, libidn11 (>= 0.5.13), libpng12-0 (>= 1.2.8rel), libqt3-mt (>= 3:3.3.4), libsm6, libstdc++6 (>= 4.0.0-7), libx11-6 | xlibs (>> 4.1.0), libxcursor1 (>> 1.1.2), libxext6 | xlibs (>> 4.1.0), libxft2 (>> 2.1.1), libxinerama1, libxrandr2 | xlibs (>> 4.3.0), libxrender1, libxt6 | xlibs (>> 4.1.0), zlib1g (>= 1:1.2.1)

hope that helps,

Thanks a lot. I added the spell, now SMGL users can install ksynaptics without a hassle.

This is a wonderful program, it restored missing "scroll pad" functionality to my laptop. keep up the good work! :)

I fear, it doesn't!
I saw the parameters introduced already, but not mentioned as feature in the release notes.
I didn't work for me, so I am sure it is yet to come :)

I worked it out, will become a choice in the "scrolling" tab in the next ksynaptics version.

it would be very nice to have this utility bundled with kubuntu because most notebook users have a touchpad and it´s a very useful tool :)

I am pretty confident that Edgy will include it.
I am working closely with a debian package manager to get exactly this goal achieved :)
There's a lot of work to do to improve the ease of 'out-of-the-installation-box compatibility' or what you'd like to call it...

I hope it or something like it to configure touchpads will be in Edgy. I just upgraded to Edgy on my laptop, and now ksynaptics won't run. It doesn't show up in the redesigned System Settings layout so I can only get to it using kcontrol. My System Tray icon is still there, but when I try to configure the properties it gives me the error "Shared Memory is not accessible". I've already tried adding the "UseShm" "true" option to xorg.conf as was suggested but it didn't make a difference.

I'm running Gentoo 2006.1 and getting this same exact issue, ever since I upgraded xorg to modular xorg. Anyone have an idea why this ould happen?

ksynaptics doesnt start on boot. I find I have to start it manually. Is there a setting I'm missing?? or is this the way it operates at this time??

Most probably a bug in syndock!
Try out the upcoming release instead.

> and the horizantal scrolling wont >stay off when i restart the x server..

that is because the X server applies its driver defaults on restart. No way to change that.
The settings are restored if you login KDE.

> its not that the settings change >back to being on in the gui just in >how the touch pad acts.. in the gui >it shows off but its really on
You could dump the touchpad state via 'synclient -l' both before and after running ksynaptics and see which parameters differ.

If the problem persists please mail me a detailed description at katakombi@gmail.com

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
