Projects / synaptiks


synaptiks is a KDE touchpad tool consisting of a system settings module for touchpad configuration and a tray application for touchpad management. The system settings module allows you to configure basic as well as advanced touchpad settings. The tray application can switch your touchpad on or off, either manually using a global shortcut, or automatically, if external mice are plugged or while the keyboard is active.
