I installed the new Synaptic driver. There is a video tutorial popping up every time I touch it with my finger.

I read that I could fix it by deleting this videos from Synaptic workspace, but I cannot find any other solution.

How can I turn it off?

  • +1 "stupid synaptic video tutorial", I would look in the synaptic tab of mouse properties, there should be a disable setting in there. – Moab Feb 26 '12 at 16:56

  • @slhck What can I say it caught my attention and made me laugh. Actually it was for showing research effort. – Moab Feb 26 '12 at 17:14

My tap zones were set to disabled and I still kept getting the video. What I tried instead was I enabled tap zones and then set all zones to 'No Zone'. So far I have not encountered the video again.


Look under "Tapping", more specifically look at "Tap zones".

I know I had this problem, and one of the touchpad corners was mapped to opening a video. Whenever I touched that corner of the touchpad, the video would pop up.

Try disabling the tap zones or modifying what that specific tap zone does.

  • hmm I think I have found solution, but I need some time to check if "it" is the right way :) – deadfish Feb 26 '12 at 19:08
