Description Paul DeStefano 2015-09-21 14:03:12 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):

How reproducible:
Always since last dnf upgrade

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login (Xfce, not sure if that is related)
2. move mouse around
3. type something

Actual results:
pointer freezes permanently

Expected results:
touchpad should resume pointer control after specified time.

Additional info:
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.
Comment 4 Kevin Fenzi 2015-09-21 17:26:25 EDT
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.
Comment 5 Paul DeStefano 2015-09-21 23:23:09 EDT
Hmm, if it's not in the .old one, then I don't think there are any errors about it.
Comment 6 Paul DeStefano 2015-09-22 00:01:33 EDT
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.

Comment 7 Kevin Fenzi 2015-09-22 12:00:24 EDT
I don't see anything obvious in the .old one. ;( 

Not sure what else to do here...
