Hot on the heels of the new driver manager, we have the new touchpad management app that we introduced in Kubuntu 14.04.
The new app replaces the old Synaptiks touchpad management app and has many more buttons and settings that you can twiddle and tweak to get the best experience. The Kubuntu team would like to thank Alexander Mezin for working on this replacement app as part of his GSoC project. The package comes complete with its own plasmoid for easy access to enable and disable touchpads! Quite useful for folks who don’t have a physical hardware button to Enable/Disable touchpads 😉
Users of Kubuntu 14.04 can grab the new touchpad management app from the Ubuntu repos by installing the kde-touchpad package.
