Bug#511464: xserver-xorg-input-synaptics: After some time strange behavior with appletouch touchpad
I have iBook G4 (A1133) and after some time the touchpad begins to behave very strangely.
Cursor moves to some direction without touching the touchpad or it cannot be moved at all and moving
is interpreted as scrolling. When I use #synclient touchpadoff=1 to disable the touchpad it works ok.
If I reinsert the appletouch kernel driver (kernel/drivers/input/mouse) and enable it again it begins
to work normally, but movement is very very slow and cannot be configured.
I used very complex (but fine working) configuration for synaptics touchpad and when problems started
I changed it to following but problems are the same.
Identifier "Synaptics Touchpad"
Option "SHMConfig" "on"
I'm unable to track some event that triggers the wrong behavior and also I don't know if the problem
is in the synaptics driver of the kernel module. But as I don't know better place to report it
I write it here.
I'll be happy to provide more information if needed.
