Upgrading xserver-xorg-input-synaptics 1.5.0-1 makes my laptop's touchpad to be ignored. I couldn't move the pointer in X, but I could in the ttys. dmesg displays:
      Code:
[43311.137329] psmouse.c: TouchPad at isa0060/serio4/input0 lost synchronization, throwing 4 bytes away.


In X I pressed alt+f2 and opened konsole to open xevn. Put focus to the xevn windows with ALT-TAB and the touchpad wasn't sending any signal.

Xorg.0.log
      Code:
 grep \(EE Xorg.0.log.old
        (WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.
[ 43282.697] (EE) synaptics: SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad: Synaptics driver unable to detect protocol
[ 43282.697] (EE) PreInit returned 11 for "SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad"


      Code:
cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/11-xorg-synaptics-sidux.conf
Section "InputClass"
Identifier "touchpad catchall"
Driver "synaptics"
MatchIsTouchpad "on"
MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
Option "Protocol" "auto-dev"
Option "TapButton1" "1"
Option "TapButton2" "2"
Option "TapButton3" "3"
Option "RTCornerButton" "2"
Option "VertEdgeScroll" "on"
Option "VertTwoFingerScroll" "on"
Option "HorizEdgeScroll" "on"
Option "HorizTwoFingerScroll" "on"
Option "CircularScrolling" "on"
Option "CircScrollTrigger" "7"
EndSection


Downgrading to testing makes the touchpad to work again

Try it without custom overrides (you can always put them back, one by one), synaptics and alps are working fine for me, but those are only 2 of 4 possible touchpad types.

Eliminating the "Protocol" option fixed my touchpad. Thank you, slh
      Code:
Option "Protocol" "auto-dev"


Which makes sense reading the log
      Code:
... synaptics: SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad: Synaptics driver unable to detect protocol

Please mark thread solved (and maybe change spelling of brakes -> breaks Wink ).

Well, the mouse's pointer couldn't be moved, so in a way, it was "braking" it Razz
