View Full Version : [PPC] "sudo trackpad notap" on wake-up

June 21st, 2010, 03:35 PM
whenever I wake my computer from sleep, it forgets the "notap" setting for the trackpad until reboot. I can fix this using the command "sudo trackpad notap".

Is there a way to have this done automatically on wake-up?

Note: I am not entirely sure whether it will work on PPC.

You could try to make a hook in /etc/pm/power.d as root. You could call this hook 20_notap:

sudo nano /etc/pm/power.d/20_notap

and put the following lines:

trackpad notap

CTRL-X and "y" to save.

Make the script executable:

sudo chmod +x /etc/pm/power.d/20_notap

At a next sleep/suspend, it should then issue your command. But as I said, I am not entirely sure whether on PPC this is also working like on Intel. I use this trick to load a kernel module after sleep on my Intel MacBook 2,1.

ok, I made a small change to the above file and I think this might be a better solution:

pbbcmd reinit

This way, if there are other users on the system or I decide to change my preferences, I don't have the "notap" option being set every time on wake-up.
