@piper: That kernel doesn't seem to be in the repo. So I have to download it and install manually I suppose?
Code: [Select]

It is in the repo and why you havn't asked about the available repo?

@dion,

I'm running 3.15.5 (from kernel.org, self configured) and this doesn't seem to be the cause of the problem.
Can you check your /proc/config.z and see if the relevant modules are enabled?


This is what I get on my machine. Seems ok to me?



dion@xps13:~$ zcat /proc/config.gz | grep -i -e evdev -e synap
CONFIG_INPUT_EVDEV=m
CONFIG_MOUSE_PS2_SYNAPTICS=y
CONFIG_MOUSE_SYNAPTICS_I2C=m
CONFIG_MOUSE_SYNAPTICS_USB=m
CONFIG_USB_VIDEO_CLASS_INPUT_EVDEV=y
CONFIG_USB_PWC_INPUT_EVDEV=y
CONFIG_TOUCHSCREEN_SYNAPTICS_I2C_RMI4=m

@towo: I just installed the 3.16-rc4 kernel from the repository you specified. Same problem as 3.15-2, alas.

Re: (Fixed) xserver-xorg update -- touchpad cursor speed slow

Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!  The touchpad cursor is now flying across the screen, faster than ever before, I think.  It must have been fixed in this morning's updates.


Edit:  It was necessary to delete the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/synaptics.conf files, to get back to a sane level of cursor control.  I looked at the changelogs for the two xserver-xorg updates, but I'm not sure that is even where the problem was fixed.  In any event, both the netbook and the laptop are back to normal performance.

Hello dibl,

has a new "xserver-xorg-input-synaptics"-package solved your problem with the slow touchpad? Unfortunately nothing has changed for me since a D-U of c. 60 minutes ago.  Hopefully that will alter with one of the forthcoming D-U's within short!

Greetings,
Jörg

There was not a new package for xserver-xorg-input-synaptics.  There were two xserver packages, but I reviewed the changelogs and did not see any type of change related to hardware support.  There were other updated packages, but I don't know which one fixed the touchpad issue.  But both of my affected systems were fixed by the updates yesterday morning (U.S. Eastern time zone).
