KDE needs to have a touchpad configuration utility.

Feature state

Package Wishlist


KDE needs a touchpad configuration tool, if Sax2 does not provide it, you can package a new kcm module: kcm_touchpad, which can configure synaptics based touchpads, you can find it in KDE-Apps:

It's now available in the Community repo. However, I think that KCM should be pushed to upstream KDE to be installed by default in all distros.

It should have the ability of disabling the touchpad when a mouse is attached (like synaptiks, in Kde repository)

This can be implemented by including kcm_touchpad package in OpenSuse repository:

No one made a request for Factory OSS repo? So many maintainers and nothing interested to push it to Factory?


Kubuntu 10.04 has kcm_touchpad installed by default, that's great move. We should do the same.

I agree that it should be installed with a base install, but only if a touchpad was detected

Not really a duplicate to but related to openFATE #308357: Replacement for Sax2 in 11.3 on https://features.opensuse.org/308357 .

Touchpad tapping is disabled by default. To enable it, make sure synaptiks is
installed and go to systemsettings => Input Devices => Touchpad and enable
