Package: xserver-xorg-input-synaptics
Version: 0.14.7~git20070706-2
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable


Hi,

I did just dist-upgrade my laptop running sid and did experience a
touchpad problem.

After rebooting, my touchpad no longer works.

If I plug a USB mouse, the USB mouse works fine (the touchpad is still
non-working).

I tried to downgrade the xserver-xorg-input-synaptics, restart gdm and
my touchpad is working again.

You don't say which version works for you. You also didn't send your X
log. Please fix that (ideally with logs for both the working and
non-working versions).

Cheers,
Julien

Hi,

Working version: working.log
By working i mean: X starts, but the synaptics functionality is broken
The "working" version is:
xserver-xorg-input-synaptics_0.14.6-1_i386.deb

Non-Working version: non-working.log

Best regards,

Laurent
