jemimah,
I found the xorgwizard does not set the SHMConfig on for the Alps touchpads.
See my post:

jemimah,

Many thanks for this !

Just installed on my new 5.2.5 hd install - files from the first post - and it works a treat ! PC is an Acer Aspire One ZG5 with an 8GB SSD.

Now see if you could get the webcam working with Skype then I would be seriously impressed Wink

Regards,

PostPosted: Sat 14 Jan 2017, 21:28    Post subject: how to turn touchpad on without a mouse  

Flsynclient works in Lucid Puppy (5.2.5, 5.2.8.7) but turning the touchpad on or off requires a mouse.
So if I turn it off, I can't turn it on again by tabbing to the ON/OFF switch.

When I am forced to use a graphical browser (for some forums, and starting in July to use fastmail) the touchpad
senses my thumbs an inch or so away and interprets this so as to move the cursor some place unexpected and to
suddenly insert or delete large blocks of text. I have wasted lots of time repairing and retyping.

Forced with the need to make fastmail usable (since my two BSD shell accounts are currently on the Barracuda
and/or Yahoo blacklists - the latter including SBC, ebay, frontier.com and rocketmail) I researched and found
that synclient can be used (in X) from a urxvt.

I made scripts

off

synclient TouchpadOff=1

on

synclient TouchpadOff=0

I added urxvt to the top of the jwm menu.
I may also add 'off' and 'on' to the menu.

Fastmail works with Opera 12.16 despite their requiring 12.17. Also with recent Seamonkey, Midori and probably Pale Moon
(which won't work on my Pentium III yet). They are the only mail provider I could find that works (but soon will not) with
lynx, links, elinks, w3m. SSL required. r to reply. Ctrl-S to send.
