Re: Trouble with Sentelic Finger Sensing Pad

I'm still here smile I've been talking with an engineer at Sentelic. They may release some updated documentation for the controller, which would be greatly useful. I'm not sure how long that will take, or if the updated documentation will be sufficient to produce the enhancements which we need, but it should be a very firm base. Sentelic have been kind in this regard, and it's good that we've established a dialogue. I'm currently using an external mouse and keyboard with the UX31. When I'm not using that setup, I wear gloves so my palms don't interfere with the pad.

Re: Trouble with Sentelic Finger Sensing Pad

Good news, everybody! An engineer (and all-round fine gentleman) from Sentelic has submitted some updated hardware documentation for the FSP.
It will hopefully be checked into the kernel tree, but for now, it's reachable here: http://fsp-lnxdrv.svn.sourceforge.net/v … iew=markup

Additionally, I have a week off work (and am at SFO airport, flying to warmer pastures), so hopefully I get time to make some forward progress.

Many thanks to Sentenlic for their support smile - actually, specifically to Tai-hwa Liang, who has donated his time!

Re: Trouble with Sentelic Finger Sensing Pad

This is fantastic!!! Reubenbond, it looks like your contact with Sentelic really paid off. Nevertheless, have you seen the git repository here: https://github.com/saaros/sentelic.git? It looks like Saaros has managed to get a preliminary version of the driver working with a bunch of wanted features. Perhaps you two can cooperate and create something much better as there is still a lot of work to be done. In particular, the cursor is very jumpy to the point of not really being usable. In any case, thank you for all your effort. We are eagerly awaiting your contributions! smile Have fun under the sun!

Re: Trouble with Sentelic Finger Sensing Pad

Chris D worked on Saaros version and improved it even further. Would be great to join and cooperate on this development, and finally have working driver in vanilla kernel wink

Re: Trouble with Sentelic Finger Sensing Pad

Hi @ll,

are there any news in this case? I'm using a Sentelic FSP, too!

what do you think about this driver package: http://sourceforge.net/projects/fsp-lnx … tic-build/

thank you in advance.

Can you provide more information on your system? However, I don't think you should be using that driver. It is quite outdated. You should probably be using the Saaros FSP driver provided on his GitHub page. However, the newer kernels (newer than 3.2) have a version of the driver that should work out of the box.

My first suggestion is to try and upgrade your kernel to 3.3 and see if that helps. If not, then you may want to try and compile your own kernel by applying the Saaros FSP patches and use the 3.3 mainline kernel for the task. I am using this latter solution on my UX21E and it works very nicely.

Well if you go to kernel.org, there is only one available version in the 3.3 denomination of the stable family, namely 3.3.2. So that's the one I mean.

Re: Trouble with Sentelic Finger Sensing Pad

when i check grep -i sentelic /boot/config-$(uname -r) with my current 3.2.0, it appears
CONFIG_MOUSE_PS2_SENTELIC=y

this should be ok, isn't it?

Re: Trouble with Sentelic Finger Sensing Pad

I just updated to 2.4.4 and OH GOD this is horrible!

well, at least it now recognizes multitouch, but I get 2 cursors (appearently jumping back and forth between to touchpoints), movement is really jerky and tap-to-click is off (probably a good thing because of the jerkyness...)

Re: Trouble with Sentelic Finger Sensing Pad

I'm using it on the UX31E Ultrabook, and the Sentelic pad is now working pretty well for me out of the box. I  did add PalmDetect=1 (using synclient).    It's not great, but not horrible.  I have PalmMinZ and PalmMinWidth set to be (unless I have it backwards) as insensitive as possible.  Kernel 3.4.3-1.

PalmWidth at 5 and PalmMinZ at 1.  Seems to help.

Re: Trouble with Sentelic Finger Sensing Pad

okay, I installed xf86-input-synaptics and at least the multitouch vertical scroll and tapToClick options seem to work again on my UX31

Re: Trouble with Sentelic Finger Sensing Pad

Hello,

I have some issues here with the Sentelic Finger Sensing Pad. it is recognized in the kernel and most functions seem to work however I cannot adjust settings in Xfce. There is no options for touchpad settings. I learned about FSPC tool for configure this exact touchpad in the repos. However after installing that package I run it and get this error: Cannot load device configuration(-2). Please can any one suggest the issue and how I could fix this?

Thanks,
