[solved] Couldn't find synaptics properties.No synaptics driver loaded

Hello,

I am curious why my synaptics driver is not loaded on my ThinkPad X200.

[orschiro@thinkpad]$ synclient -l
Couldn't find synaptics properties. No synaptics driver loaded?
[orschiro@thinkpad]$ pacman -Q xf86-input-synaptics
xf86-input-synaptics 1.6.2-2
[orschiro@thinkpad]$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-synaptics.conf 
Section "Module"
	Load    "synaptics"
EndSection

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "touchpad catchall"
        Driver "synaptics"
        MatchIsTouchpad "on"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
        Option "TapButton1" "1"
        Option "TapButton2" "2"
        Option "TapButton3" "3"
	Option "VertEdgeScroll" "on"
EndSection
[orschiro@thinkpad]$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-evdev.conf     
#

#EndSection

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "evdev tablet catchall"
        MatchIsTablet "on"

EndSection

Any ideas?

Re: [solved] Couldn't find synaptics properties.No synaptics driver loaded

Xorg.0.log? I had similar issue when i downgraded Xorg to 1.12, but synaptics was compiled for 1.13. Logs should tell.
Also, in my 10-evdev-conf, the touchpad section is uncomented, and synaptics works, so maybe there is your problem.

I did not downgrade Xorg.

Re: [solved] Couldn't find synaptics properties.No synaptics driver loaded

Uncomment the touchpad section in 10-evdev.conf and see if that works.

I tried that already. The same result.

Re: [solved] Couldn't find synaptics properties.No synaptics driver loaded

Wait, does the X200 even have a touchpad?

Re: [solved] Couldn't find synaptics properties.No synaptics driver loaded

Well, some sort of. Can this be counted as a touchpad?

Interesting, I have never thought of that.

Re: [solved] Couldn't find synaptics properties.No synaptics driver loaded

Nope, thats not a touchpad.  Having a few old thinkpads over the years, you can get your "trackpoint device" to work using http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/How_to_co … TrackPoint

I always used the xorg.conf.d section and my trackpoints always worked.

Re: [solved] Couldn't find synaptics properties.No synaptics driver loaded

Thanks, now it's clear. As such I'm safe to remove the synaptics.conf entry as well as the xf86-input-synaptics package I guess.
