View Full Version : more synaptic worries

19th October 2017, 08:39 PM
I just started installing Fed 26 on a mate's Toshiba Satellite laptop.

As expected there are touchpad issues.

Defautl libinput half worked ( as usual ). Two finger Vert scrolling was very erratic. Single tap fine. Two finger and three finget tap , no go.

I installed synaptics-legacy and removed by 49-libinput-overrides.conf and added 99 synaptics-overrides.conf

relevent lines below.

Two finger scrolling works fine in Firefox, so the device must be able to provide two finger input.

Two finger and 3-finger taps do nothing.

MatchDriver "synaptics"

Option "TapButton2" "2"
Option "TapButton3" "3"

This is getting messy which is annoying since it worked perfectly under Fed 24 before someone decides libinput was "better" when it is still unreliable and flakey.

Any ideas. I don't want to give my mate a brand new borked linux.
