Bodhi Linux and ACPI


Hi,

I installed Bodhi 5.0 on my EEEPC 1215b. Everything works well except some ACPI keys (sleep key, (dis)activate touchpad, click on tap etc.).

Can someone help me to make this options work ?

Thanks.

Get aterminal open. You need to run acpid with the '-l' option, which logs events to syslog. In one terminal, run
Code:
tail -f /car/log,/messages
or whatever your log file is. Then press all function keys, and see what's logged.

If you open the "quick launcher" and search for "key bindings" you should be able to bind those function keys to do as you want.

There is a built in Moksha command for suspending the system, but for something like disabling the touch pad you'll probably need to find a command to run online for your specific touchpad version.

I installed synaptics driver and now I can click with a tap.

But I didn't find how to disactivate the pad.

Is the touchpad deactivation a big thing? Why not just leave it and avoid sitting on it :-)

Should be able to do that using the xinput command as detailed here: https://askubuntu.com/questions/6595...e-the-touchpad

Hello there

For touchpad matter I recommended the touchpad-indicator to my colleague. Maybe not ideal, but working solution

I use an external trackball and ocassionally bump the trackpad, so thought I'd try. Xinput method worked for me. Not sure if I would need to add to startup commands or not as I haven't rebooted...

Code:
bodhi@VPCF115FM:~$ xinput list

Command 'xinput' not found, but can be installed with:

sudo apt install xinput

bodhi@VPCF115FM:~$ sudo apt install xinput
[sudo] password for bodhi:
