Hi,

I wanted and needed more keyboard enhancments and particulary stop the annoying tap on the touchpad moving my cursor away. So, I've applied several enhancements documented in the FAQ, offered by pbbuttonsd (notap option) and more, but didn't work. So, I found some posts recomending synaptics driver, which I've installed.

This has partially solved the problem, but I'm still experiencing random annoying issues:

1) Frequently and suddenly the copy buffer gets pasted into the cursor (more often in the terminal).
2) Rarely the cursor moves into another position (probably because I touch unnoticed the touchpad somehow)
3) Rarely and suddenly the last pressed key starts repeating itself quickly, so I have to stop it by pressing yet another key.

These are the versions and relevant configuration files and recent changes I've made:
To emulate right and central mouse buttons
Code:
/etc/sysctl.conf
dev.mac_hid.mouse_button_emulation = 1
dev.mac_hid.mouse_button2_keycode = 87
dev.mac_hid.mouse_button3_keycode = 88


For the synaptics driver
Code:
/etc/X11/xorg.conf
Section "ServerLayout"
        Identifier      "X.Org Configured"
        Screen          0  "Screen0" 0 0
        InputDevice     "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
        InputDevice     "Synaptics Touchpad" "AlwaysCore"    <== !!
        InputDevice     "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection
:
Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier "Synaptics Touchpad"
        Driver "synaptics"
        Option "SendCoreEvents" "true"
        Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
        Option "Protocol" "auto-dev"
        Option "LeftEdge" "60"
        Option "RightEdge" "850"
        Option "TopEdge" "60"
        Option "BottomEdge" "511"
        Option "MinSpeed" "0.4"
        Option "MaxSpeed" "1"
        Option "MaxTapMove" "0"          <=== This stops the touchpad tap issue !!
#       Option "MaxTapMove" "10"
        Option "MaxTapTime" "100"
        Option "AccelFactor" "0.07"
        Option "SHMConfig" "on"
        Option "RTCornerButton" "3"
        Option "LTCornerButton" "2"
        Option "HorizScrollDelta" "0"
        Option "VertScrollDelta" "30"
        Option "CircularScrolling" "1"
        Option "CircScrollDelta" "0.1"
        Option "CircScrollTrigger" "5"
EndSection


In the pbbuttonsd.conf file:
Code:

/etc/pbbuttonsd.conf
:
TPMode                = notap


More details:
Code:
Powerbook G4 17"
Kernel: 2.6.16-r7
synaptics-0.14.4-r2
pbbuttonsd-0.7.4
gtkpbbuttons-0.6.8-r1
powerprefs-0.5.0
powernowd-0.90
gnome-2.12.3


Thanks
Luis
