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.

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

THis is really usefull for all the millions of synaptics laptop user like me out there.
Please add this kcm to KDE's CVS so everyone can use it. I believe this is not possible for KDE 3.4, but it definitly needs to get into KDE 3.5 (as I read on cvsdigest that 3.5 should be a reality before KDE 4.0).

Thanx for all your work.

I've planned that long ago already.
Actually ksynaptics is in KDE CVS (formerly kdenonbeta, now in kdereview), but I think it won't make it into the next major KDE default release.
I see no problem in having it either in KDE 3.5 or KDE 4.0 (whatever comes after 3.4)

Can someone make an ebuild for Ksynaptics and Qsynaptics and while you are at it, can you update the ebuild of portage. Its version 0.13.6 on portage but the latest version is 0.14.0 .

Hi,
While ./configure I got this message:

checking for Qt... configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 3.3) (library qt-mt) not found. Please check your installation!
For more details about this problem, look at the end of config.log.
Make sure that you have compiled Qt with thread support!

No information in the log. I've tried to do it using --with-qt-dir argument, but the same error. Any idea?
Thanks in advance.

Perhaps you only have qt-dev installed.
You need qt-mt-dev, the multithreaded version.
I think you could try also ./configure --disable-mt

Hi,

I am also facing the same problem...
I tried giving --disable-mt option...it still did not work...the error is:

checking for Qt... configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 3.3) (library qt) not found. Please check your installation!
For more details about this problem, look at the end of config.log.

I am using Mandrake 10 and KDE 3.2.
The path for qt3 lib is /usr/lib/qt3/lib. The Qt version is 3.2 and the multithreaded Qt library (qt-mt) is available in this directory.

Please help!!!

Thanks,

Hi,

Here is what I have tried and got things moving a bit...

Changed the QT version specified in "configure.in" file in the top-level directory of ksynaptics.
Do the following:
1. Change the line
KDE_USE_QT(3.3)
to
KDE_USE_QT(3.2)

2. Delete the "configure" file in the top-level directory.

3. Run autoconf from the top-level directory. This will generate the "configure" file.

Now open the ksdlg.ui file under directory ksynaptics/src using QT Designer. Save the file from QT designer. This is required to convert the 3.3 version file to 3.2 version.

Run "configure" from the top-level directory and then fire a "make".

For me the build fails with following error:


/bin/sh ../../libtool --silent --mode=link --tag=CXX g++ -Wnon-virtual-dtor -Wno-long-long -Wundef -ansi -D_XOPEN_SOURCE=500 -D_BSD_SOURCE -Wcast-align -Wconversion -Wchar-subscripts -Wall -W -Wpointer-arith -Wwrite-strings -O2 -Wformat-security -Wmissing-format-attribute -fno-exceptions -fno-check-new -fno-common -o kcm_ksynaptics.la -rpath /usr/lib/kde3 -module -avoid-version -L/usr/X11R6/lib -L/usr/lib/qt3//lib -L/usr/lib -no-undefined -Wl,--no-undefined -Wl,--allow-shlib-undefined ksynaptics.lo syntp.lo myframe.lo ksdlg.lo -lkdeui

make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

make: *** [all] Error 2

Any idea how to resolve this? I think this is an issue with KDE/QT version. The application was developed with higher version of KDE/QT than the one I have (KDE 3.2/QT 3.2).

Thanks,

Hi,
I've tried but it doesn't work. First I tried to found the qt-mt-dev package, but I couldn not figure out what is the name in Mandrake distribution. Then I have used the --disable-mt option, but the script complaints about qt lib. I know I have devel qt libs in /usr/lib/qt3. Any ideas?'
Thanks in advance

After some compilation concerns that have been solved very easily, this apps seem to fullfill well its promise. A simple way to manage touch pad.
I'd like it to be integrated in kde


It made my touch pad my friend again (I discovered touchpad scrolling :)

I strongly rely on users testing the compilation - could you point out the compilation troubles in detail?
I'd love to avoid as many as possible in future releases.

* ksdlg.ui - wrong path
* missing "#include

I updated the tar balls and hope these fixes all problems at last :)

Suse delivered an outdated version of the driver.
You need to install from source the latest tarball available under
http://w1.894.telia.com/~u89404340/touchpad/index.html

If you use an rather exotic distribution, make sure you can run synclient and syndaemon
from command line.
If you don't, it's contained in the drivers tarball.
