Description Mildred 2010-05-04 12:24:00 UTC
Description of problem:

When I resule my computer from sleep, or change my virtual console (using the Ctrl-Alt-Fn shortcut), I loose the configuration of my synaptics touchpad. The custom configuration that is lost is either induced using a xorg.conf.d snipped, or using synclient.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): xorg-x11-drv-synaptics-1.2.2-3.fc13

How reproducible: always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure manually your synaptics driver using a xorg.conf.d snippet or synclient
2. Put your computer to sleep
3. resume
Actual results: the configuration is lost
Expected results: the configuration is still active

Additional info:
I am using GNOME and gpointing-device-settings. It might be reason why the configuration is reset. The additional configuration I use cannot be configured within the gpointing-device-settings.

xorg.conf.d snippet:

Section "InputClass"
	Identifier	"touchpad"
	MatchIsTouchpad	"on"
	Option	"TapButton1"		"1"
	Option	"TapButton2"		"3"
	Option	"TapButton3"		"2"
	Option	"EmulateTwoFingerMinZ"	"50"
	Option	"VertTwoFingerScroll"	"1"
	Option	"HorizTwoFingerScroll"	"1"
	Option	"SHMConfig"		"1"

do you see the same issue when running a plain X session?

my guess is that gnome/gp-d-s simply overwrite your setting once the device comes back.

Can't reproduce the bug, closing it.
