A snapshot of what will be synaptics 1.8. There are a couple of significant
changes in here:
The evdev backend on Linux now uses libevdev. We recommend to use libevdev
1.1-rc1 or later as the synaptics driver is very likely to trigger
SYN_DROPPED and we've fixed a bunch of issues in libevdev 1.1.
Support for T440, T540, X240, Helix, Yoga:
The bulk of the changes is to support this set of Lenovo touchpads. These
touchpads don't have separate physical buttons for the trackstick and need
to be emulated as software-button by the driver.
TouchpadOff behaviour change:
Synaptics has a property "Synaptics Off" to disable events. Previously,
this disabled any event from the touchpad. Now, physical button clicks are
allowed even when the touchpad is disabled.
mtdev was dropped:
There are no touchpad drivers in the kernel tree that use protocol A, so
using mtdev is just a computationally expensiv and memory-wasting noop.
Please give this a good test, we'd really like some feedback on all this.
Benjamin Tissoires (1):
Add secondary (top) software buttons area
Hans de Goede (8):
Allow using the entire touchpad for motions started inside the active area
Add an enum for the different soft_button_areas
Get rid of old_hw_state
Don't report motion inside soft-button areas
Ignore motion the first X ms after a clickpad click
On button down update cumulative to current x and y, instead of previous
Wait for *new* coordinates on a clickpad click before reporting the click
synaptics: Add support for server managed fds
Keith Packard (2):
Close device if DeviceOnHook fails
When re-opening evdev, set the fd before trying to grab
Peter Hutterer (28):
Disable driver scaling for input ABI 19.2
Switch to libevdev for the eventcomm backend
Drop maintainer mode
autogen.sh: support NOCONFIGURE=1
Drop edge speed from get_delta
eventcomm: ungrab the device on DeviceOff
Add missing property handler for the pressure motion factor
Fix ABI detection for in-driver scaling
On clickpads with two touchpoints, try to detect clickfinger 3 actions
Bump to 1.7.99
Revert "Purge scrollbuttons (repeat)"
Drop the half-baked test suite
Revert "Drop circular pad support"
man: setting scroll deltas to 0 doesn't work (#75074)
Add another third state to TouchpadOff for disabling all but button clicks
man: fix documentation about the new touchpad state
Add property support for secondary (top) software buttons
eventcomm: fix wrong event code for SYN_REPORT
eventcomm: drop calculation of slot offset
eventcomm: drop some use of mtdev
eventcomm: drop mtdev
Revert "Add another third state to TouchpadOff for disabling all but button clicks"
conf: apply ClickPad softbuttons option through fdi file too
Revert "conf: apply ClickPad softbuttons option through fdi file too"
conf: apply ClickPad softbuttons option through fdi file too (fixed version)
conf: automatically enable the top softbutton area for the new Lenovos
If the touchpad is in TOUCHPAD_OFF mode, allow physical clicks
Stephen Chandler Paul (2):
Replace is_inside_anybutton_area with current_button_area
Don't allow any type of movement starting in the top softbutton area
