Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 114911
kernel 2.6.1 breaks trackpad tap-to-click
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:04:32 EST
Description of problem:
I dropped kernel 2.6.1-65 onto my Dell Inspiron 5150, and the
tapping the trackpad to make a left mouse click is no longer
working. Reverting to a 2.4 kernel makes it work again.
The device, according to XF86Config is a PS/2 type.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always - boot, attempt to use the trackpad by tapping on it.
Steps to Reproduce:
2. Start X
3. Tap on the trackpad
No left mouse button event.
A left mouse button event.
Boot messages (forgot to include these, sorry)
Synaptics Touchpad, model: 1
new absolute packet format
Touchpad has extended capability bits
-> multifinger detection
-> palm detection
input: SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad on isa0060/serio1
I suspect that this might be the same thing as bug 99351.

did this get fixed in newer kernels ?
Yes, it's working fine now.
