-i value in
synadaemon is supposed to alter the time after which the trackpad becomes active again
It does not work, in the sense that neither decimal (
0.1) or high (
60) values make any change at all. The timeout stays stuck at the default
I am using
syndaemon to stop the trackpad when typing:
syndaemon -i 1 -d -R
I would like to set a less great value for
-i, such as
syndaemon -i 0.1 -d -R for example.
According to the (several spread) documentation the
-i parameter defaults to
2.0 seconds. Decimal, hence.
Yet when I set
syndaemon -i 0.X -d -R where
X is any value between 1 and 9, the daemon just blocks the trackpad for the default 2 seconds. When I use a comma, it complains for invalid values, so I would assume it does understand the dot, it just fails to apply it.
Does someone know what to try next, how to fix, if, or how/where to report, if necessary?
I have tried to find the actual appropriate place to ask and report this issue, found a bug report for something similar in an xFCE instance https://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11906 and I am using Gnome on xOrg.
I tried finding the actual makers of the daemon, it seems it is under the umbrella of x desktop, yet, their (x desktop) doc pages for drivers in general do not mention syndaemon, or synaptics, which by my limited understanding is related.
Thus apologise if this is the wrong place to ask for help with it, it surely feels totally wrong, yet I was informed elsewhere that it would be the best to start with “your distro”, who then would escalate upstream if adequate. And my distro happens to be EOS (T2 modification, however, the problem is not limited to the T2 as far I could test on another computer where I use “vanilla” EOS)
Thank to whomever may inform me where to go next… or how to use decimal values in the
-i parameter of the syndaemon?
