Fedora 11 Update: xorg-x11-drv-synaptics-1.1.3-1.fc11

Fedora Update Notification
2009-08-03 19:03:49

Name        : xorg-x11-drv-synaptics
Product     : Fedora 11
Version     : 1.1.3
Release     : 1.fc11
URL         : http://www.x.org
Summary     : Xorg X11 Synaptics touchpad input driver
Description :
This is the Synaptics touchpad driver for the X.Org X server. The following
touchpad models are supported:
* Synaptics
* appletouch (Post February 2005 and October 2005 Apple Aluminium Powerbooks)
* Elantech (EeePC)
* bcm5974 (Macbook Air (Jan 2008), Macbook Pro Penryn (Feb 2008), iPhone
  (2007), iPod Touch (2008)

Note that support for appletouch, elantech and bcm5974 requires the respective
kernel module.

A touchpad by default operates in compatibility mode by emulating a standard
mouse. However, by using a dedicated driver, more advanced features of the
touchpad become available.


    * Movement with adjustable, non-linear acceleration and speed.
    * Button events through short touching of the touchpad ("tapping").
    * Double-Button events through double short touching of the touchpad.
    * Dragging through short touching and holding down the finger on the
    * Middle and right button events on the upper and lower corner of the
    * Vertical scrolling (button four and five events) through moving the
      finger on the right side of the touchpad.
    * The up/down button sends button four/five events.
    * Horizontal scrolling (button six and seven events) through moving the
      finger on the lower side of the touchpad.
    * The multi-buttons send button four/five events, and six/seven events for
      horizontal scrolling.
    * Adjustable finger detection.
      Multifinger taps: two finger for middle button and three finger for
      right button events. (Needs hardware support. Not all models implement
      this feature.)
    * Run-time configuration using shared memory. This means you can change
      parameter settings without restarting the X server.

Update Information:

Update to version 1.1.3 to include bugfix for 502548. On some touchpads, notably
on the Acer Aspire One, edge scrolling ceases to function once the finger is
moved towards the far right edge of the touchpad. This update auto-adjusts the
scrolling edges to avoid this issue.

* Mon Jul  6 2009 Peter Hutterer <peter hutterer redhat com> 1.1.2-2

  actual values go past min/max (#502548).
