touchpad breaks freeze constantly after upgrade if "disable while typing" active
Last modified: 2016-07-19 13:58:25 EDT
Description of problem:
Recently, touchpad mouse is freezing within a few minutes of logging in. Buttons work, but touch pad is broken and pointer is unusable. Seems to help if "disable while typing" is not enabled.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always since last dnf upgrade
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login (Xfce, not sure if that is related)
2. move mouse around
3. type something
pointer freezes permanently
touchpad should resume pointer control after specified time.
touchpad disables when typing, now, regardless of touchpad settings in Mouse&Touchpad settings editor.
Can you please attach your /var/log/Xorg.0.log (assuming you are using lightdm...)

This is the current log, but I changed touchpad settings, so let me also get you the old one, too...

Maybe this has more or different errors.
Well, I was hoping for one where you see the problem... might be some error logging in that file that indicates what is causing this.
Hmm, if it's not in the .old one, then I don't think there are any errors about it.
awesome. I turned the option back on and, naturally, the symptom is gone. Obviously, I disabling and re-enabling this option before, and it didn't help. But, I logged out and back in with it disabled, then enabled it and logged out and back in *again.* That seems to have changed something significant.
I don't see anything obvious in the .old one. ;(
Not sure what else to do here...
