  It needs to press touchpad hotkey twice to re-enable touchpad

Status in gnome-settings-daemon:
Status in OEM Priority Project:
Status in unity-settings-daemon package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  * Impact
  the touchpad toggle key doesn't work correctly

  * Test case
  using a laptop having a "touchpad toggle key", try to use it to turn touchpad off and on while no other pointing device is connected, it should correctly toggle

  * Regression potential:
  enabling/disabling of different pointing devices should keep working


  I have a laptop: ASUS P452L and it has a hotkey (Fn+F9) to disable touchpad function.
  I found when I use the hotkey to disable the touchpat and then I have to press the hotkey
  twice to re-enable it.

  This is symptom cannot be found if:
  1) using Kubuntu.
  2) plug the usb mouse (any port is ok)

  Because it can't be reproduced in Kubuntu, I think it should be an
  issue of unity-settings-daemon.

  Platform: ASUS P451L
  Ubuntu: 14.04-LTS
  Unity-setting-daemon version: 14.04.0+14.04.20140606-0ubuntu2
  Touchpad vendor: Elantech

  Note: This issue can be reproduced in Ubuntu 15.04.
