Bug Description

Cannot set trackpad settings to disable tapping and scrolling after upgrade to KDE 4.9.0 by way of backport ppa.
Trackpad controls do not show up in the System Settings - Input Devices. Mouse only. I was expecting the tapping and scrolling to be disabled as they had been before the upgrade.

I Installed and am able to use Gpointing device settings control, but must do so after each restart. Settings are not persistent.
Laptop is Acer Aspire 5820T.

With the prior 4.8.?? my settings (disable tapping and scrolling) were persistent.

no longer affects: meta-kde (Ubuntu)

Simon, thank you for taking time to respond to this old complaint.
Indeed, the issue has been resolved. I've moved on from that computer and am now using Plasma 5.5.5 with which the touchpad is working fine, just as I like it.

Catching up on these kinds of bugs is frequently done without clearing the notes entered on Launchpad, which is the goal, of course. Getting these notes up to date is sometimes more busywork than anything else. Thanks for taking the time and making the effort.

I'd recommend marking it "Fix Released".
