Description Rafael Louback Ferraz 2011-09-20 00:27:24 UTC
When this option is on, touchpad takes to long to be responsive again.. most of the time I need to touch the touchpad twice so it can work. Wierd is that this option worked fine in the past. After one update it starts to behave like that.

Maybe the time which the touchpad is blocked is to long, I dont know..

does syndaemon show up in ps? if so, what are the flags it's started with?

Comment 2 Rafael Louback Ferraz 2011-09-20 23:58:01 UTC
ps -aux | grep syndaemon

doesnt return any app name

My guess is you're seeing the effect of: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=621836

I do wonder since when you are seeing this now though, this isn't a recent change. And also why you're not seeing syndaemon, gnome-settings-daemon should have spawned it off.

Comment 4 Rafael Louback Ferraz 2011-10-25 15:38:30 UTC
Gnome devs, should stop to take all the decisions about how the user would like this or that, fixing it to a value. And focus in giving the user an advanced option to change it if they want. (Same case with cpu governor, that they dont included an option to change it, even Microsoft Windows has this option)

But thanks for the help
