Sorry about the incomplete instructions above, just didn't have time to actually install it until now.

 

Ok, I was able to install it on my Bodhi 4.2 - 64bit install on my ASUS laptop exactly like this

 

Open a terminal and type the stuff that's not in parentheses --

  (update your repositories)
sudo apt-get update
  (install some packages that will be required by gpointing settings)
sudo apt-get install gconf2 man-db desktop-file-utils mime-support menu
  (make a temp directory)
mkdir temp
  (move into that temp directory)
cd temp
  (download the 'libgpds0' deb file that is required by gpointing settings)
wget http://launchpadlibrarian.net/128621864/libgpds0_1.5.1-6ubuntu2_amd64.deb
  (install the 'libgpds0' package)
sudo dpkg -i ./libgpds0_1.5.1-6ubuntu2_amd64.deb
  (download the 'gpointing-device-settings' deb file)
wget http://launchpadlibrarian.net/128621862/gpointing-device-settings_1.5.1-6ubuntu2_amd64.deb
  (install the 'gpointing-device-settings' package)
sudo dpkg -i ./gpointing-device-settings_1.5.1-6ubuntu2_amd64.deb

I now have "Pointing Devices" in the Preferences portion of my main menu.

Hmm, something about "best practice" in my experience. Could have prevented the dpkg lock above.

 

mkdir debs
cd debs
wget http://launchpadlibrarian.net/128621862/gpointing-device-settings_1.5.1-6ubuntu2_amd64.deb
wget http://launchpadlibrarian.net/128621864/libgpds0_1.5.1-6ubuntu2_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i libgpds0_1.5.1-6ubuntu2_amd64.deb gpointing-device-settings_1.5.1-6ubuntu2_amd64.deb

In case of errors run
sudo apt-get install -f
#(will correct missing dependencies)
sudo dpkg --configure -a
#(should configure packages that were not fully installed/configured)

The packages you installed in advance are available in the repos, only these two had to be taken from launchpad.

No, do nothing, you have gpointing settings working. This might be usefull for your next computer though as it might prevent all those errors you were suffering.

sorry i did run them.  didn;t know if you would be back today.  hope i didn't mess things up.

 

also i noticed that in 3 you could scroll up or down or or or double click at the top of the window to roll them up or open them - in 4 it doesn't work - is that correct?

 

eve the stuff that you said if there was an issue just in case.

OK, you want to resize your system partition and that can not be unmounted. Better boot a liveCD and run gparted from there.

You should select sda1 and choose resize. Leave it at least at 30GB in size to avoid possible issues with space in the future.

This will result in a big chunk of unformatted free space.

You might prefer to select sda5 and remove that, next remove sda2. Now the free space is even bigger. Click in there and create a new partition. Make sure it is marked as "Extended Partition". In there you can create several partitions without being limited to four.

What is your goal?

Be sure to create a small (1000MB) partition at the end of the drive and assign it to linux swap area.

gparted via live cd does not let you delete sda5 and above without unmounting them or some such thing and there is no way that i could find to do it.  i am trying to reclaim that - that is wasted and unless i get rid of it it will be wasted forever on the life of this computer.  when i reinstalled bodhi4 i was hoping it would write over the entire thing which i chose to do.

 

i also found the rollup window setting in the windows focus area.  never knew how i got it to work on my other 2.  now i know.  the shower refreshed me a bit.

 

 

i really am so glad you both helped me get this going.  so - also - when i do my other 2 more important thinkpads - i should do the first half of sef's stuff and then your new tweaked stuff right therafter.

OK, last remark for the day. 

In gparted right-click on the partition you want to modify. In the popup menu you will see an option "unmount" Click on it. When you right-click the swap partition you will have an option "swapoff". Click on it. This will make this special area available for modifications.

Re: gpointing devices---- to anyone who decides to use it or in my many cases needs it - there is a workaround that one has to do at every startup and extremely rarely after a suspend, and i mean rarely... click on tapping tab, and then you have to uncheck the disable tapping and then check the disable checking and then close out.  that is not a problem - Charles told me a yr and half ago that is what will make it work -an i do religiously at startup and as i said, when i get a rare mouse behavior that needs me to do it.  Hope this helps.

Norman,

The next time you restart your computer, instead of doing the gpointing settings fix right away, try doing this in a terminal first and see if the problem goes away.

synclient MaxTapTime=50

If that doesn't work, try this next in the terminal

synclient MaxTapTime=0
synclient MaxTapTime=50

That 'MaxTapTime' value is the only thing I see changing when I check/uncheck the gpointing box in the synclient settings from the terminal.


Nothing is as simple as it seems at first, or as hopeless as it seems in the middle, or as finished as it seems in the end.
