The new tip suggests that users delete files in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d. However, the X11 documentation says that files in this directory are for system use and user configuration files should go into /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d. Therefore I think that this tip should be worded differently but I do not feel completely certain.
- It doesn't say to delete the file. I think it can be overridden by naming the libinput file e.g.
60-libinput.confso that it is applied before synaptics. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 13:05, 1 September 2016 (UTC)
I'm not sure where to go for support of this.
Accidentally scrolling where my palm touches my T460s trackpad enters some text
How do I limit or disable this unwanted behaviour?
- Look through the man page for
"DisableWhileTyping"might be what you are looking for. -- Cqql (talk) 02:34, 16 September 2016 (UTC) .
ClickMethod clickfinger/fingers ?
I'm confused why the source code the documentation, and the manpage all mention "clickfinger" as the click_method, but
gsettings range org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.touchpad click-method showed that I had to use "fingers", not "clickfinger" for the setting. Does anybody know why that is?
- What you compare is the libinput x-wrapper nomenclatura to how gnome names it in its settings database. For the same reason the
DisableWhileTyping(see #Scrolling issue above) will have dashes when it arrives as a gnome gsettings key to toggle. edit: I now see , maybe gnome will follow suit. --Indigo (talk) 13:49, 20 December 2016 (UTC)
Touchscreen scrolling and kcm-pointing devices-git
On the wiki page for libinput, it recommends installing kcm-pointing-devices-git for Plasma 5. However, this entails installing various dependencies including libxcb-git and xcb-proto-git. libxcb-git is marked as being out-of-date, and xcb-proto-git conflicts with the current xcb-proto.
I am not sure I want to install the required dependencies, for various reasons, but mainly because I am not at all sure it would even help to solve the issue I am concerned with: to enable scrolling on my ELAN touchscreen.
Can anyone comment on this issue?
