Re: Disabling mouse taps on Fedora 10 (solved)



I not only wanted to send a 'Solved' post, but pieced together a step by step on how to do this from all the posts...

Copy/Rename the FDI file...
cp /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/20thirdparty/10-synaptics.fdi \
 /etc/hal/fdi/policy/11-synaptics.fdi

edit this file (11-synaptics.fdi) as indicated in the thread appropriate
section for your touchpad (you can discover which touchpad section by
'cat /proc/bus/input/devices')

Reboot

I added:
<merge key="input.x11_options.SHMConfig" type="string">On</merge>
(allowing 'on the fly' shutting on and off of features with 'synclient')
<merge key="input.x11_options.TouchpadOff" type="string">2</merge>
(Turns the mouse pad tapping (and other) features off)

I can still do:
synclient TouchpadOff=0
to turn the features on.

My /etc/hal/fdi/policy/11-synaptics.fdi is in the paste bin as an example...
http://fpaste.org/paste/3891

I did it by changing xorg.conf touchpad section to set the touch duration to zero. I can go dig out the details if you care, lots of discussion in this list on how to create the xorg.conf.

Thanks, but I did a lot of research prior to figuring this out and the consensus is that Fedora 10 left out xorg.conf for a reason and that it is not a good idea to use that approach anymore because it conflicts with the new approach.

You must have missed the long thread (this thread) that's been going on with this discussion.

Thanks,
Rocco
