Libinput touchpad

Postby liquidpool » 2017-12-17 01:12

How in gods name do I alter libinputs touchpad settings? Absolutely nothing I've been able to find has had any effect, I'm completely bewildered here. This is especially frustrating as synaptics was the easiest thing in the world.

Code: Select all
# mkdir -p /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d
# cp /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/40-libinput.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d
# editor /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/40-libinput.conf

See libinput(4) for all of the options.

EDIT: or use this to go back to synaptics:
Code: Select all
# apt install xserver-xorg-input-synaptics

^ This is what I do :D
