    For what its worth...running an E6600 on an ASUS P5B Deluxe. Just connected my Epson WF-7620 Google Cloud Printer and Office 365 Environment. This is AWESOME and improving by the day. I see Google has invested in Neverware, maybe Android apps are soon to follow!!!! Keep up the incredible work and thank you so much for this experience! Running 59.0.3

    I am having an issue my MacBook Unibody screen just going to sleep. This can happen even while am actively typing. This issue has not happened in the other releases. In fact it just happened while typing this.

    Kevin - 

     

    Please post a new thread since your problem is unrelated to the this post. Include more specific info about your particular macbook (internal hardware, year/models number) as well as a description of what happens after the screen sleeps. Is the device asleep and needs to be woken up? Or do you need to reboot?

    Just tested the v60.1 version and mouse movement and scrolling is "tolerable" compared to v56, yet the two finger scrolling via my synaptics touchpad is way too slow. Is there any way to increase the scrolling speed? It also seems the new scrolling has no acceleration at all, compared to xinput based v56?

    The current state of how the touchpad feels reminds me of the old synaptics driver back in 2005, yet they have come a long way. So my choices are using a older OS v56 that gets no updates or live with the bad feeling touchpad and hope for the best.

    You can adjust touchpad settings in some cases - but it isn't as easy anymore because now the Freon graphics/input stack replaced xinput and related configs.

     

    Is your touchpad a modern clickpad? Or does it have dedicated buttons?

    If your touchpad is newer and compatible with the cmt driver's configuration options, you might be able to adjust things this way:



    1) Open a cmd line

    ctrl+alt+t

    2) Remount the root filesystem as read/write

    sudo mount -o rw,remount /

    3) Start editing the config file:

    sudo vim /etc/gestures/40-touchpad-cmt.conf

    (you'll need to brush up on the controls for editing and saving in vim, if you're not already familiar)

    4) You might need to experiment with which sections or settings change the right stuff for you.

    I'd recommend starting by altering the value for "Scroll X Out Scale" and "Scroll Y Out Scale" near top. Those values should apply to all (newer) touchpads.

     

    Hope that helps!

    Whenever we release a stable update, we ship the same updated build to our beta and dev channels too (until we have some thing more advanced to push on the beta and dev channels later).

     

    If you're ever in doubt, just check out blog - we announce almost everything in detail there.
