eeepc900 screen res fine! touchpad fine! but not both together.
« on: January 27, 2011, 01:49:48 PM »
Hi, I have TC on an eeePC 900. I followed this guys helpful instructions here:

http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php?topic=988.0

except I run the patched 915resolution from the /opt/bootsync.sh script. It works perfectly and the resolution is at 1024x600.

Unfortunately when he computer boots now, the touchpad "double finger scroll" has stopped working... I originally got this to work by adding a mouse boot code psmouse.proto=imps

Is it possible that me running 915resolution from bootsync.sh is causing the problem, or could it be the patched version is causing the problem?

Is there anyway I can set the mouse proto from within bootsync.sh?
Many thanks.

edit:

My apologies, it isnt the 915resolution thats stopping the mouse scrolling working! I have stopped 915resolution from running and the mouse still cant scroll with 2 finger dragging... Not sure what is stopping it.

edit:

It turned out my .xsession file had some wrong mouse settings in, not sure how it happened, I mustve run a settings program when figuring out the screen res. and forgotte Ide done it perhaps... anyway it is fixed :)

the right settings for future reference, in .xsession:

/usr/bin/Xvesa -br -screen 1024x600x24 -shadow -mouse /dev/input/mice,5 -nolisten tcp -I >/dev/null 2>&1 &

Cool.  I kind of miss my eeePC 1000.  It's taking a while, but I'm finally getting this Satellite T215D to a point that it is not so frustrating to use.

I had not noticed this thread until now. For what it's worth, TC 3.5 works perfectly on my Eee900. This is a copy of the relevant lines from my grub.conf:

Quote
title Tiny Core
        root (0x80,0)
   kernel /tiny/bzImage quiet psmouse.proto=imps xvesa=1024x600x32 tce=sda1 home=sdb1 opt=sdb1 nodhcp
   initrd /tiny/tinycore.gz

The problems with mouse control are fixed by psmouse.proto=imps
