Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-control-center

I cannot adjust the sensitivity of the touchpad on my Dell D620 notebook. The notebook has a joystick/nipple mouse in addition to a synaptics touchpad. Using gnome-mouse-properties to adjust the sensitivy only changes the sensitivy of the joystick and leaves the touchpad unaffected.

May be connected to Bug #177146

May also be connected to Bug #106969
because the touchpad is improperly detected as mouse.

Gutsy -no change.

Note that on Hardy the sensitivity slider does nothing for me. The acceleration slider changes all the inputs (mouse, trackpad, trackpoint) so it can't be used to balance them out.

The gsynaptics applet can change all settings of the trackpad except sensitivity...

As far as I can tell, the devices below are (1) apple mouse I had plugged in earlier (it wasn't when I ran this command), (2) trackpad, (3) track-point.

I had the same problem on my Dell Latitude D630, I fixed the problem using xinput:

here's the command: xinput set-ptr-feedback "AlpsPS/2 ALPS GlidePoint" 3 8 1
