Touchpad scroll does not work after upgrade to -current


Hi,

I think I had faced this problem before and then, had fixed the same. It won't work now! The problem:

After upgrading to -current (using slackpkg), my touchpad scrolling won't work. I have a file added in /etc/hal/fdi/policy/11-x11-synaptics.fdi with the following contents:

Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<deviceinfo version="0.2">
  <device>
    <match key="info.capabilities" contains="input.touchpad">
        <merge key="input.x11_driver" type="string">synaptics</merge>
        <!-- Arbitrary options can be passed to the driver using
             the input.x11_options property since xorg-server-1.5. -->
        <!-- EXAMPLES:
        Switch on shared memory, enables the driver to be configured at runtime
        <merge key="input.x11_options.SHMConfig" type="string">true</merge>

        Maximum movement of the finger for detecting a tap
        <merge key="input.x11_options.MaxTapMove" type="string">2000</merge>

  Enable vertical scrolling when dragging along the right edge -->
        <merge key="input.x11_options.VertEdgeScroll" type="string">true</merge>
  <!--
        Enable vertical scrolling when dragging with two fingers anywhere on the touchpad
        <merge key="input.x11_options.VertTwoFingerScroll" type="string">true</merge>

        Enable horizontal scrolling when dragging with two fingers anywhere on the touchpad
        <merge key="input.x11_options.HorizTwoFingerScroll" type="string">true</merge>

        If on, circular scrolling is used
        <merge key="input.x11_options.CircularScrolling" type="string">true</merge>

        For other possible options, check CONFIGURATION DETAILS in synaptics man page
        -->

        <merge key="input.x11_options.SHMConfig" type="string">true</merge>
        <merge key="input.x11_options.TapButton1" type="string">1</merge>
        <merge key="input.x11_options.FastTaps" type="string">1</merge>

    </match>
  </device>
</deviceinfo>
I remember that this had solved my problem previous time and in fact, after upgrade I have changed nothing (since this file already existed there). When I check the /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/10osvendor/ directory, I see that no "11-x11-synaptics.fdi" file was present. I just copied the file from /etc/hal/fdi/policy into this directory, but this did not help. Can somebody guide me through this?

From CHANGES_AND_HINTS.TXT
Quote:
The version of Xorg in Slackware -current will not (in most cases) require
an /etc/X11/xorg.conf file at all. Input hotplugging is no longer done
using hal; instead, it now uses udev for input device detection and for
keyboard mapping.

/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/ is the "packaged" configuration directory; all
files ending with ".conf" in this directory are used by the X server
unless there is an identically-named file in the local sysadmin directory.
The local sysadmin config directory is /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ - all files
ending with ".conf" in this directory are parsed.

There are several default config files in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/:
* 10-evdev.conf
a "catchall" rule for input devices using the evdev driver; this
should work for most hardware in the absence of a better driver
* 50-synaptics.conf
overrides the earlier 10-evdev.conf file and uses the synaptics
driver for all touchpads
* 50-wacom.conf
overrides the earlier 10-evdev.conf file and uses the wacom driver
for Wacom tablets
* 90-keyboard-layout.conf
this sample ("normal" en layout) keeps the "old" default of
allowing Zap'ing the Xserver.
If you need to modify any of these defaults, then copy the relevant file
from /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/ to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ and edit the
copy.

You can still create an xorg.conf file if you wish, or you can create some
minimal xorg.conf snippets with only the specific contents that you wish
to override (as an example, to use a binary-only video driver) as separate
files in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ directory.

No luck!

I created a /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf file with following contents:
Code:
# DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE - IT WILL BE OVERWRITTEN ON UPGRADES
# Copy this file to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ and edit the copy
#
# Use "synclient -l" to see all available options
# Use "man synaptics" for details about what the options do
#
Section "InputClass"
	Identifier "touchpad"
	Driver "synaptics"
	MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
	MatchIsTouchpad "on"
	Option "TapButton1" "1"
	Option "TapButton2" "2"
	Option "TapButton3" "3"
  Option "VertEdgeScroll" "on"
  Option "HorizEdgeScroll" "on"
EndSection
After reboot, the touchpad scroll still does not work. It is very surprising since, I remember, that first time I installed 12.2, the touchpad would work but not the scroll and tapping. I had done some fixes back then (probably something similar like now, but can't remember exactly). And now after the upgrade, the tapping works, but not the scroll!

When I type "synclient -l", I get the following error too:
Code:
Couldn't find synaptics properties. No synaptics driver loaded?
Could this point me to some issue?

Please post the contents of /var/log/Xorg.0.log and /etc/X11/xorg.conf.
If the synaptics driver is not being loaded, a device detection problem is indicated.

About the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, I don't have one. I am now wondering, then how does my touchpad work for movement and tapping (but not for scroll!).

It appears that your touchpad is being detected as a generic PS/2 mouse (hence movement and tapping).
Try changing /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf to match the actual path /dev/input/event5
Code:
	MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event5"

I did that (and rebooted), but it does not seem to help (tried the same with /dev/input/mouse0 instead and that too did not help. I noticed that, in fact, this number (event"5" or mouse"0") changed too when I did a reboot. I ran it with "event*", but same result.

You appear to also have an external mouse. Is the touchpad recognised if you reverse the change I suggested, disconnect the external mouse and boot?

Yes, most of the time, I do prefer to use an external mouse. However, even when I disconnected the usb mouse and reverted back the changes I had made (back to /dev/input/event*), the scroll does not work (the moving and tapping works, of course).

I don't know if information might be helpful, but I added another section on top of the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf file:
Code:
Section "Module"
   Load "synaptics"
EndSection
This gave some additional lines in my Xorg.0.log file:
Code:
[   102.352] (II) LoadModule: "synaptics"
[   102.397] (II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/input/synaptics_drv.so
[   102.407] (II) Module synaptics: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
[   102.407] 	compiled for 1.9.2, module version = 1.3.0
[   102.407] 	Module class: X.Org XInput Driver
[   102.407] 	ABI class: X.Org XInput driver, version 11.0
Of course, this did not make any difference as my touchpad is still being detected as a ps/2 mouse. And also, inspite of the above loadmodule message, synclient still doesn't work!!

Another thought I have had is to check your BIOS settings for a USB Legacy Mouse option. If there, try turning it off. Seems a long shot if you had this working before though.

Doesn't seem to help! Is there a place wherein I can try changing the way it is detecting my input devices? I have tried proto=any, proto=imps and the whole line commented out in the /etc/modprobe.d/psmouse.conf file.

Temporary fix found!

I found a surprising temporary fix. Following this thread: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...laptop-675065/, I did the following:
Code:
# rmmod psmouse
# modprobe psmouse proto=auto
and this gets the touchpad scroll going (and in Xorg.0.log, it is being detected as AlpsPS/2 ALPS GlidePoint. Then, from the Xorg.0.log contents, it looks like the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf file is then loaded..

However, as my last post suggests, even when I had the proto=auto clause in /etc/modprobe.d/psmouse.conf, the touchpad was not being recognized. This could mean that it is either being "overread" again later somewhere else wrongly. This is what I think, of course I may be wrong. Unfortunately with my limited knowledge (and googling skills), I could only go thus far.. a temporary fix. Can anybody advice what could be actually wrong?

Very glad you found an answer. I am wondering whether there is a weird hardware specific timing problem here.
You could try adding your fix to /etc/rc.d/rc.local so the lines are executed last in the boot process.

Thumbs up

Wonderful!

Thanks a lot allend for all the help and your time. The additions to rc.local did the trick (and good to know for me, that it is the last script that gets executed!). :-)

Hi,

I just thought I will be a bit more ambitious and tried to get two-finger scrolling on my touchpad going. Doesn't look like it is working however!!
From most of the forums, what I gathered was that this was simply an addition of two extra lines related to - VertTwoFingerScroll and HorizTwoFingerScroll in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf file. I seem to have these changes, but it is not working!
Code:
Section "Module"
  Load "synaptics"
EndSection

Section "InputClass"
	Identifier "touchpad catchall"
	Driver "synaptics"
  Option "SendCoreEvents"
	MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
  Option "Protocol" "auto-dev"
  Option "SHMConfig" "on"
	MatchIsTouchpad "on"
	Option "TapButton1" "1"
	Option "TapButton2" "2"
	Option "TapButton3" "3"
  Option "VertEdgeScroll" "on"
  Option "HorizEdgeScroll" "on"
  Option "VertTwoFingerScroll" "on"
  Option "HorizTwoFingerScroll" "on"
  Option "EmulateTwoFingerMinW" "5"
  Option "EmulateTwoFingerMinZ" "48"
EndSection
When I run synaptics -l, I get:

Has anybody been able to get this working? If so, can somebody let me know as what I am missing? I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 and running -current, with as this post suggests, the side scrolling working. The touchpad gets detected as AlpsPS/2. The Xorg.0.log and synclient -l output indicates that the two-finger scrolling is on, but it doesn't work!! Thanks in advance!
