I just did a huge full-upgrade (been a while since the last so a lot of stuff changed) and also upgraded to kernel 2.6.30.
After this I'm having some annoyances with the touchpad: the worst thing is that I can't turn it of anymore. I used to do it with a simple
xinput as per this message, but then I had to tweak
psmouse module as suggested in the SynapticsTouchpad Debian Wiki because the tap-click wasn't working anymore. After that I can't disable that stupid device by no means: no synclient, no xinput, no gsynaptics.
I also dislike the new pointer speed and can't tweak that either, but that's a minor annoyance since I use the touchpad only when I can't use the mouse (and the reason I want to turn it off is that I keep hitting it with my thumbs while typing).
