Thread: configuration of touchpad not active

  1. #1

    Default configuration of touchpad not active

    Hello. I've just installed Tumbleweed. Everything's great save for the touchpad. It is working, except for the scroll bar which is annoying. When I go to the configuration panel, I cannot change any parameter. It says "the active does not correspond to the saved configuration. the saved configuration is displayed". there's a button to activate the active configuration, but it does not do anything. I cannot click on any of the parameters, they are greyed.
    Any idea ?
    Thanks !

    Welcome to openSUSE Forums tangerine16!

    1. Which desktop environment are you using?

    2. What is reported by the following command?
    sudo libinput-list-devices
    *This will tell us more about how libinput is handling the device.

    3. This might give us useful hardware description of your touchpad...
    /usr/sbin/hwinfo --mouse
    4. The laptop brand/model might be helpful as well.

    Thanks ! I have a lenovo m30, and I'm running KDE.
    here's what I've got. So two fingers scrolling work, but not on the edge, and still bizarre that the configuration is not active

    and the second command gives that : /usr/sbin/hwinfo --mouse
