The touch pad configuration module could not be loaded:

kcmshell ksynaptics

Upstream is pretty much dead for this project.  I've seriously considered dropping this from Fedora, but it is still useful (when it works).  I may look into this if I have time, but not too likely.  Attempts to ping upstream may be more useful though all of my email attempts bounce.
Comment 2 Steven M. Parrish 2008-08-05 20:36:18 EDT
Based on my research ksynaptics is indead dead.  

See  this is the new app replacing it. Touchfreeze

Looks like we should get this packaged up
Comment 3 Orion Poplawski 2008-09-09 16:28:55 EDT
Is this really a ksynaptics bug?

[orion@cynosure devel]$ kcmshell --list
The following modules are available:
[orion@cynosure devel]$

Or are KDE3 apps unsupported at this point?
Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2008-09-09 16:37:42 EDT
Oh cryin out loud -> kdeilbs3.  anyone clueful here?
Comment 5 Kevin Kofler 2008-09-09 16:44:10 EDT
kcmshell --list being empty is "normal": well, it's probably a bug, but it's not what keeps it from working, e.g. "kcmshell colors" works just fine.
Comment 6 Steven M. Parrish 2008-09-28 17:04:35 EDT
Ping... Bug or no?  Keep open or close?
Comment 7 Steven M. Parrish 2009-02-06 11:05:02 EST
The information we've requested above is required in order to review this problem report further and diagnose or fix the issue if it is still present.  Since it has been thirty days or more since we first requested additional information, we're assuming the problem is either no longer present in the current Fedora release, or that there is no longer any interest in tracking the problem.

Setting status to "CLOSED: INSUFFICIENT_DATA".  If you still experience this problem after updating to our latest Fedora release and can provide the information previously requested, please feel free to reopen the bug report.

Thank you in advance.
