View Full Version : [all variants] Increase touchpad sensitivity WITHOUT using gsynaptics

July 1st, 2010, 07:56 PM
I have been using gsynaptics to increase the touchpad sensitivity on my macbook 4,1. However, installing gsynaptics makes my fans increase to 6000rpm every 10 minutes. I uninstalled gsynaptics, and it no longer does that.

But, I want greater sensitivity! =( its a catch 22.

Is there a manual way to increase sensitivity without installing gsynaptics? or another alternative tool?

Does anyone else have this problem? Or am I just a bit weird?

You're not alone :)

I also fell the trackpad is not as sensitive on ubuntu (as on MacOS), although performing correctly (two fingers scroll, double click, etc.).

I have it on a Macbook 3,1, but never tried the gsynaptics, guess I'll try and come back later.
