Subject[RFT/PATCH] Toshiba Satellite, Synaptics & keyboard problems
Date
Hi,

If anyone experiencing keyboard getting "stuck" when you use Synaptics
touchpad in native mode on Toshiba Satellite type notebooks it seems that
lowering rate to 40 pps (which is roughly the same as standard PS/2 rate
bytewise) helps.

Please try the patch below (should apply to -mm tree) and see if it helps
any. If not using -mm tree just use "psmouse.rate=40" or "modprobe psmouse
rate=40" to check if fix is working for you and let me know.

Thanks!

ChangeSet@1.1960, 2004-11-08 01:51:37-05:00, dtor_core@ameritech.net
Input: synaptics - use DMI to detect Toshiba Satellite notebooks
and automatically reduce touchpad reporting rate to 40 pps
as they have trouble handling high rate (80 pps).
