Comment 28 for bug 320632


Well I was able yesterday evening to upate the package.
Everything works fine!

Nothing to say except that the pointer is now such stable that I'm regreting the motion of my pointer
yesterday which was casi unstable and was able to move very quickly !
Such a way that keeping only my finger on the pad without motion and the pointer beginned to shake !!

No pasa nada !!

Where I can read that the new package features the patch from yesterday ???
I mean yesterday we were really talking with someone who put the new-good pkg online ?

Objet: [Bug 320632] Re: tap-to-click and edge-scrolling broken in Jaunty

I expect that we will see the launchpad janitor add some messages here about a fix being released (I don't know for sure) and if so it will automatically change the status. Some time after that (minutes or hours, not days) you should see the updates are available icon in your panel and then you can just allow those updates as you usually do. If you look at the packages first you should see xserver-xorg-input-synaptics 0.99.3-1uuntu2 and those will be Alberto's patches.

You won't have to use apt-get, but once you see them in the update
manager you can close the update manager and use apt-get if you want. If
not it will all be automatic.

My guess is that those who have tested the new package already have
downloaded it from and installed the downloaded .deb
with a lower level program. I'm going to wait myself.

Bug description:
Binary package hint: xfree86-driver-synaptics

As of today's package update from xserver-xorg-input-synaptics 0.15.2-0ubuntu8 to 0.99.3-1ubuntu1, tap-to-click and edge-scrolling no longer work on my Acer Aspire One.

Rolling back the update restores correct functionality.
