I'm not sure how to make this easier.


  1. download File:Touchpad.tar and extract the files onto a USB drive
  2. sudo chmod o+w /sys/devices/platform/i8042/serio1/ptmode
  3. sudo cp /media/YOURUSB/module-touchpad.svg /usr/share/sugar/data/icons/
  4. sudo cp /media/YOURUSB/capacitive.svg /usr/share/icons/sugar/scalable/devices/
  5. sudo cp /media/YOURUSB/resistive.svg /usr/share/icons/sugar/scalable/devices/
  6. sudo mkdir /usr/share/sugar/extensions/cpsection/touchpad
  7. sudo cp /media/YOURUSB/*.py /usr/share/sugar/extensions/cpsection/touchpad/
  8. sudo rm /usr/share/icons/sugar/*.cache


  • This feature requires Fedora 11+ and Sugar 0.84+ (e.g., the build from Paraguay).
  • You'll have to do Step 2 every time the you reboot the system.
  • Substitute the name of your USB key for YOURUSB in the above instructions


  1. Open the Control Panel
  2. Click on the Touchpad icon
  3. Click on the icons and observe that the touchpad switches modes
