Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1062363
Resuming Dell XPS 13 leaves the touchpad stuck in scroll mode
Last modified: 2014-03-13 21:23:38 EDT
Description of problem:
About 80% of the time I resume my Dell XPS 13 (Sputnik) laptop the touchpad gets stuck in scroll mode. The cursor won't move, but windows will scroll up and down. The touchscreen continues to work, and apparently the buttons do too, but scroll mode stays stuck. I have two finger scrolling enabled and tap-to-click.
P.S. Sorry if this is filed against the wrong component, I took my best guess. How a non-technical user is ever supposed to find the right place to file a bug out of that massive list of components, I have no idea. /rant
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Erm...? Fedora 20?
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Suspend laptop by closing the lid
2. Resume laptop
3. Try to move the cursor with the touchpad
Cursor is stuck, windows scroll
I've found that the bug occurs less frequently if I disable two-finger scrolling, but it does still happen, perhaps 1 in 5 suspends.
Is there any more information I can provide to help get this fixed? It's a pretty irritating bug :)
What's likely happening here is that the driver receives a SYN_DROPPED event which it doesn't handle. Not sure what to do for F20 here, but if you download and re-compile the rawhide xorg-x11-drv-synaptics source package that should fix the issue.
Cause is the same as bug 877464
