Title: KDE needs to have a touchpad configuration utility.
Package Wishlist: Unconfirmed
Requested by: Rafael Belmonte (eaglescreen)
KDE needs a touchpad configuration tool, if Sax2 does not provide it,
you can package a new kcm module: kcm_touchpad, which can configure
synaptics based touchpads, you can find it in KDE-Apps:
#1: Markus K (kamikazow) (2009-11-15 22:33:39)
It's now available in the Community repo. However, I think that KCM
should be pushed to upstream KDE to be installed by default in all
#2: Jonas Rüdiger (jsowieso) (2009-12-14 19:26:31)
It should have the ability of disabling the touchpad when a mouse is
attached (like synaptiks, in Kde repository)
#3: Rafael Belmonte (eaglescreen) (2010-01-10 22:49:56)
This can be implemented by including kcm_touchpad package in OpenSuse
#4: Mariusz Fik (fisiu) (2010-04-30 16:20:01)
No one made a request for Factory OSS repo? So many maintainers and
nothing interested to push it to Factory?
Kubuntu 10.04 has kcm_touchpad installed by default, that's great move.
We should do the same.

+ I agree that it should be installed with a base install, but only if a
+ touchpad was detected
