Thread: Can't get Nautral Scrolling working!

    Default Can't get Nautral Scrolling working!

    Hi all,
    I have not been able to figure out how to get natural scrolling working in Tumbleweed. I am using a System76 Kudu laptop.

    Gnome GUI settings appear correct with natural scrolling turned on.
    Also checked the "get" settings here:
    gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.touchpad natural-scroll true
    gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.mouse natural-scroll true
    They both reflected true already, but I changed them and changed them back just in case...

    Not sure where else to go. Lots of instructions for other distros of different ages, so I want to be careful here.

    Any help out there?

    If not, I assume libinput is being used for your touchpad here? (You can check the Xorg log for to confirm)

    Then check the current touchpad device properties and report back here
    Code:
    xinput list
    Code:
    xinput list-props <your touchpad device ID>
    or using 'libinput-list-devices' (assuming libinput is in use)
    Code:
    sudo libinput-list-devices
    or filtered for 'TouchPad'....
    Code:
    sudo libinput-list-devices|awk '/TouchPad/' RS="\n\n"

    Thanks,
    Yeah, I found that thread which helped me confirm both settings were true. Not sure where to go next and having trouble finding something helpful, so thanks for your help.

    libinput does not appear to be installed. I had to install xinput to get the above info as I had no installed that either. I can obviously install it if you think that would be helpful.

    Yes, I think Gnome specifically requires it.
    Code:
    zypper in xf86-input-libinput
    Not sure if synaptics needs to be removed, but if so do
    Code:
    zypper rm xf86-input-synaptics
    Restart the X-server when done and see if that helps.

    Genius! Thanks!

    I never would have figured that out without your help!

    Works perfectly.

    While doing some heavy researching yesterday, saw tech notes that said it does not need to be removed. But, also, does not hurt. Sorry, too much material in too many places to give a citation.

    Well, normally the Xorg input config files ensure that libinput takes preference, but I just wanted to make sure I didn't get a 'that didn't work' reply, so easier to show how to get rid of it.
