Porteus 5.0rc2 touchpad autostart changes overridden

Post#1 by Ed_P » 16 Sep 2020, 19:43

For my notebook's touchpad I have a script that customizes some of the settings. In /etc/xdg/autostart I have a desktop file which runs the script. (the same desktop and script files from Porteus 4.0) The script runs because the result of a syndaemon command in it are evident but the synclient settings (PalmDetect=1 PalmMinWidth=4) are not changed.

Is there a different place to put the autostart commands?

Try via /etc/rc.d/rc.local
Sorry, my English is bad.

Thank you babam. :good:

It is interesting to note that replacing the /etc/xdg/autostart file with an entry in /etc/rc.d/rc.local didn't help. But when the /etc/xdg/autostart file is present and an entry is in /etc/rc.d/rc.local file the touchpad changes are effective. :crazy:

Added in 35 minutes 1 second:
Maybe I should try the /etc/xdg/autostart/ desktop file in the /home/guest/.config/autostart folder. :hmmm:
