Description J.B. Nicholson-Owens 2004-11-11 21:04:04 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3)

Description of problem:
Changing speed and sensitivity in gnome-mouse-properties changes
nothing for trackpads in FC3.  This used to work well in FC2.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC3 on machine with trackpad.
2. Run gnome-mouse-properties and adjust speed and sensitivity.

Actual Results:  Nothing changed--the mouse is over-accelerated by
default and remains so no matter what I set the sliders to.

Expected Results:  The speed and sensitivity should have changed
according to my slider settings.

Additional info:

I have no idea which RPM package this maps to.  "rpm -qif
gnome-mouse-properties" returns "error: file gnome-mouse-properties:
No such file or directory".  I guessed that gnome-mouse-properties is
an applet.

I've commented out the Synaptics section and ServerLayout definition
from xorg.conf and found that the gnome-mouse-properties does then
respond to speed and sensitivity.

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!

Closing per lack of response to previous request for information.
This bug was originally filed against a much earlier version of Fedora
Core, and significant changes have taken place since the last version
for which this bug is confirmed.

Note that FC3 and FC4 are supported by Fedora Legacy for security
fixes only.  Please install a still supported version and retest.  If
it still occurs on FC5 or FC6, please reopen and assign to the correct
version.  Otherwise, if this a security issue, please change the
product to Fedora Legacy.  Thanks, and we are sorry that we did not
get to this bug earlier.
