Knoppix-on-pb57bw

Knoppix 6.2 on pb57bw

First situation

- Bought with two partitions: one hidden vfat (sda1) and one ntfs (sda2) - ntfs resized, sda3 & sda4 created with Knoppix v. 5.3 and installed on this (sda4 for home).

Time to Knoppix 6.2

After some years of use, testing new Knoppix v. 6.2 :)

Nb: - ntfs partition (sda2) is nearly full: it could not contain KNOPPIX file and knoppix-data.img

The first boot with a CD-Rom of Knoppix: it just works

boot with fromhd

knoppix fromhd=/dev/sdb1

- running KNOPPIX from an usbkey (seen as /dev/sdb1) - keeping our change with writable image file on usbkey

The image file knoppix-data.img keeps data, for ex. your home and everything you modify in live.

Touchpad with scroll

Thanks to hyperair at: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xserver-xorg-input-synaptics/+bug/247608

create a file touchpad.fdi in /etc/hal/fdi/policy directory

sudo vim /etc/hal/fdi/policy/touchpad.fdi

add it:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<deviceinfo version="0.2">
 <device>
          <match key="info.capabilities" contains="input.touchpad">
               <merge key="input.x11_options.SHMConfig"
type="string">true</merge>
               <merge key="input.x11_options.HorizEdgeScroll"
type="string">1</merge>
               <merge key="input.x11_options.VertEdgeScroll"
type="string">1</merge>
          </match>
     </device>
</deviceinfo>

save, quit (you could use this combo: Esc :x Enter :P)

restart hal service:

sudo /etc/init.d/hal restart

restart X display server: keep Ctrl and Alt keys the BckSpace, this one like [<-- ]

Maybe I forgot xorg.conf ?
