# Bug: Fingerterm does not honor systemwide touchscreen config

For example, touchscreen vibration is always on, regardless of what your configure in your system config.

edit retag close delete

Thank you! As i tried to change over settings in this file and the changes where erased each time Fingerterm is launched, I was not aware some could be truly changed. That's what I've done: SSH to the phone

ssh nemo@IP


then make a backup of the settings file

cp /home/nemo/.config/FingerTerm/settings.ini /home/nemo/.config/FingerTerm/settings.ini.old


then edit with vi

vi /home/nemo/.config/FingerTerm/settings.ini


Save it (Escape then type :x then Enter), and no more vibration.

No, you're right, it doesn't.

There is a 'workaround' if you are okay with using Fingerterm?

Here's how I achieved it and yes, it survives reboot!;

I used File Browser from Jolla Store to navigate to

/home/nemo/.config/FingerTerm/settings.ini

/home/nemo/Documents

for purposes of editing. (I'm sure there is an easier way to do this, but I was comfortable doing it this way).

Connected Jolla to PC via USB and extracted the .ini to PC desktop and edited one line;

keyPressFeedback=true to keyPressFeedback=false

saved it and shifted it back to Documents.

Then in Fingerterm, (devel-su required), navigate to Documents and then used the command

cp settings.ini /home/nemo/ .config/FingerTerm/settings.ini

to overwrite the original file. Bingo! No more vibration.

I even rebooted to be sure and the vibration has stayed off!

Long winded I know and perhaps is not the easiest way to achieve it, but it works.

Regards,
