    I tried that, but half of it is disabled and some of the figures are wrong.

    I think it's dead. The homepage in the Ubuntu .deb does not exist and git only contains translation entry's. I see one code commit in 2010 though.

    If I were you, I would just create an synaptics_custom.conf in your xorg.conf.d and be done with it. No more fiddling with synclient and system-wide settings.

    Default Yogo Pro 2 support is only half baked

    On a Yoga 2 Pro, using Kubuntu 14.04 with the latest 1.73 drivers, my touchpad fails to initialize as I have to blacklist the idea_pad-laptop module to enable wifi.

    Removing idea_pad from the blacklist enables the touhpad, but wifi will not initialize.

    I can't seem to manually revive wlan without removing the ideapad-laptop module:

    Code:
    sudo rmmod -f ideapad-laptop
    Failed manual attempts at reviving the wlan were as follows:
    Code:
    sudo rfkill unblock all
    sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
    sudo service network-manager restart
    even though:

    Code:
    iwlist scan
    shows that wlan0 is "UP BROADCAST..."

    Looks like this issue can be resolved as per this bug report, https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1021036, but patch has yet to land in the kernel.

    I sure wish the manufactures would put a little more time in testing their products with Linux and requesting Linux compatibility from their component vendors.

    Default Yoga 2 Pro half bake update

    Update to post #13: Subsequent updates from the Kubuntu repositories have fixed the touchpad/wifi conflict. Touchpad works with the ideapad-laptop module disabled.
