Hi there,

I have an Toshiba R830 laptop and touchpad working fine till 10.2-RELEASE upgrade. I tried to re-install synaptics driver and referred to FreeBSD Synaptics Wiki page, which seems a bit outdated.

Does anybody have similar issue? Or any help would be much appreciated!

Thanks!

I have a similar issue. When I upgraded to 10.2-RELEASE, Xorg would crash upon starting and I would be stuck on a blank screen with no working input devices. Keyboard and mouse froze, so I had to do a hard reboot. It only happens when I try to startx; otherwise I am able to use the console environment without issue. I switched to 9.3-RELEASE and it works fine. I couldn't get much useful info from Xorg.0.log other than "drmDropMaster failed: Unknown error: -22" and "Server terminated successfully (0). Closing log file", and that was at the exact moment it froze. Unfortunately I didn't have much luck Googling these messages.

Are you able to see the Xorg.0.log on your system?

Did you read the release notes?

The psm(4) driver has been updated to include improved support for newer Synaptics ® touchpads and the ClickPad ® mouse on newer Lenovo ™ laptops. [r281708]

Aye, I definitely did. But, to be honest, I did not expect "improved support for newer Synaptics touchpads" would cause my working synaptics to stop functioning.

I am still trying to get some functionality back, but seems like 90% is OK, only missing thing is vertical scrolling.

hyperrealx , I did not have any drm related messages within Xorg.0.log file. However, when I had X to console switching and X not responding (same as yours) issues back in 10.1-RELEASE days, I had to change my console driver. You may want to have a look at this web site, and read the vt(4)

I'm having the same problem: the touchpad did work fine under 9.3 and after upgrading to 10.2 it is not supported in X11 anymore. This is from my Xorg.0.log:

I have synaptics enabled in /boot/loader.conf:

# Synaptics touchpad; see psm(4)
hw.psm.synaptics_support="1"
hw.psm.trackpoint_support="1"   # TrackPoint in ThinkPad Laptops
hw.psm.tap_enabled="1"
hint.psm.0.flags="0x2000"       # hook resume
The mouse daemon moused is disabled in rc.conf.

Any hint would be highly appreciated.
