Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 604485
synaptics allows invalid mode to be set
Last modified: 2010-11-10 16:56:57 EST
Description of problem:
the synaptics driver always reports success on a mode switch call, leading to the device seemingly being in absolute mode when it isn't.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
0. xinput list "SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad" | grep Mode
(mode is listed as relative)
1. xinput set-mode "SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad" ABSOLUTE
2. xinput list "SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad" | grep Mode
(mode is listed as abolute)
except that the touchpad still works in relative mode.
