Suse didn't recognize the touchpad Roling. Even in the hardware + mouse+ touchpad option, it doesn't show any touchad option for touchpad. What should I do? My note is Dell inspiron 7560.

Hi
Is the xf86-input-synaptics package installed?

I did the way (yast - management of software - search for xf86-input-synaptics).

The system informs that it is installed in version 1.8.3-3.7.

Hi
Hmmm, in the output it's all there and showing as functional from hardware point of view. So there is nothing in Menu -> System Settings (Spanner/Screwdriver) -> Mouse and Touchpad?

If you open a terminal and check gsettings;


gsettings list-keys org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.touchpad
gsettings list-keys org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.mouse

Do you get output from this (as in a list of keys)?

gsettings list-keys org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.mouse

Hi
OK, can you check each of the settings (you can use dconf-editor) to
browse/search or command line, for example;



gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.touchpad tap-to-click


And nothing in the Settings GUI?

It is interesting what happens in this situation, using dconf-editor, because I can turn off the touchpad, it is possible to disable the clicks on the touchpad, but if I change the settings for touchpad scrolling, nothing happens ...

The touchpad only worked on the Suse installation, but not already installed. Would this information help?

Hi
Looks like you might need to review the man page for synaptics (man synaptics) and also look at the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf to add options in as required. Can you confirm the exact things your want to work?

The functionality I need is a touchpad scroll with 2 fingers, vertical and horizontal.

If you edit the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf in the first Section "InputClass" and add the following;



Option "VertTwoFingerScroll" "on"
Option "HorizTwoFingerScroll" "on"


Reboot, do things kick into life?
