More people will see if if you post on the Beginners or Users forum. Have you tried Quirky? It has both a newer kernel and a newer Xorg. Is the 1100 really old? If so, maybe the you'd have better luck with Tuxxx's 214X, which has an older Xorg and an older kernel.

ha, so it was a simple matter of downloading and installing the Xorg_full_dri-7.3 package and then restarting X. Xorg is working fine now after I chose the 1024x768, but not 24 and instead the lower value (was it 16?). Anyway, I also downloaded your program and I've got two-finger scrolling working! Excellent! Thanks for the program.

Now I'm just looking for a way to make my desktop not look so cartoonie...

Thanx for this jemimah. Couldn't get it to work using ttuuxx's 4311/w firefox but having reverted to standard 431 is now working.

Good Job Kevin! That's the first time I've heard of that solution.

Daftdog, I wonder if Tuxx updated the Synaptics driver on his puplet. If he did, he might be able to provide the correct version of the Synclient.

It seems to be an earlier version than the one on 431! Going by dates anyway. ttuuxx built this puplet on 430 I think.
No problem; I'm switching back to the standard 431 anyhow.

Jemima, question please: you mentioned editing the Xorg wizard script earlier in this post. Where will I find that script please?

Tried this with Lucid 500. Had to run xorgwizard to create an xorg.conf file and then it worked fine.

PostPosted: Fri 28 May 2010, 01:28    Post_subject: Flsynclient-Source, please?  

Jemimah,
There are a couple minor changes in flsynclient 0.7:
Code:
v0.7 - tested with synclient 0.14.6, fixed a bug with fd close, fixed a makefile bug

If you could post the source for your patched version or the patches , I'll give a try at updating it to 0.7. (If I build, though, it will be on Lucid Lynx; compatible with Lucid Puppy 5.00.)

Other than that, I'm happy to be able to fix the Synaptics settings.

You can get the source here: http://puppeee.com/files/sources/flSynclient-jemimah-patches.tar.gz

You may already know this - Fltk comes with a graphical tool called Fluid you can use to edit the GUI.

If you link fltk statically (which is usually the default for fltk) the binary should work pretty much everywhere.

It'd be nice if the GUI fits on 7inch netbooks so it shouldn't be taller than about 460 pixels.

Thank you.
Right now I've merged the changes (over 50 differences, of which about 10 applied smoothly or matched the upstream changes), gotten it working in Fluid (I accidentally inserted a } right in the middle of UImain.fl at first; that caused no end of trouble), and made it compile.
Of course, compile isn't the only thing--right now it segfaults if I attempt to start it. I guess I jumped in over my head, as I've only played around with Turbo C previously Embarassed .
If anyone dares touch my mess, I'll attach it.

I built .7 on Puppeee but I don't see any major functional improvements, just an additional tab in the GUI. I still don't see any compelling reason to try to merge.

I've attached the .7 source with my fixed makefile so it should build and run. It might be easier to add in the other widgets by hand than to try it will diff. Adding the new code wasn't especially complex.

PostPosted: Sat 11 Sep 2010, 04:42    Post_subject: synclient-wrapper
Sub_title: for Lupu-5.1x
 

On the Lupu-5.1x, the Synaptics touchpad works from the first desktop, but the flsynclient fails.
I made a wrapper script which can be a solution.
