Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 421001
Set: Option SHMConfig to yes for synaptic touchpads
Last modified: 2018-04-11 03:29:24 EDT
Steps to Reproduce:
- install F-8 on a laptop with a synaptics touchpad
- yum install gsynaptics (or add/remove sw for point and click users)
An error that SHMConfig must be set to yes
A configuration dialog for my touchpad
Adding this single line:
Option "SHMConfig" "yes"
To the Synpatics InputDegvice section fixes this, I believe that
system-config-display should do this by default.
We don't set this because the way it's implemented, *anyone* on the box can then
change the configuration at any point.
There was some work underway to rework synaptics to have a sane way of doing
configuration that could be limited to the user actually using the X session,
but I haven't heard any more about it in a while unfortunately :(
