Thread: Touchpad settings ignored/missing after update

  1. #1

    Default Touchpad settings ignored/missing after update

    Changing the /org/gnome/desktop/peripherals/touchpad settings in dconf have no effect. "gsettings get" agree with dconf but no effect.
    In the new GNOME settings section mouse & touchpad there are no settings for touchpad input anymore only Mouse and General. The computer is a Macbook air (mid 2013).

    Other dconf periferals settings work like: keyboard, displays. The touchpad works well in otherwise. (although it is hard to write on a laptop with large touchpad when tap-to-click is enabled causing constant accidental clicks)

    I suspect the problem appeared when updating to GNOME 3.26 the other week at witch point I belive the settings where changed back to default.

    I have run out of things to test... What can I have done wrong? Or is this a known issue / where should I report it?

    Hi
    So there are no setting options under System Settings -> Devices -> Mouse & Touchpad?

    Are you running Wayland or X?

    Hi
    OK, I have an older MacBook (2007) and in both Xwayland and X I see Touchpad settings, if plug a mouse in those settings appear as well.

    As root user, what is the output for;
    Code:
    hwinfo --mouse

    I guess that explains why I cant change the touchpad settings as the system thinks my touchpad is a mouse...

    Yes that does appear to be the case. FWIW, the exact capabilities of the device can be examined using
    Code:
    sudo libinput-list-devices
    As libinput is work in progress, a bug report may be needed to get this device handled properly.

    Actually, the output for the touchpad looks ok to me, and 'Tap-to-ckick' is disabled.

    Yes, but still it is not actually disabled... This is all very weird.

    Created a bug report. https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=103057)
