    You need to install 'libinput-tools' and 'xinput' for those commands.

    As i see, i can use leap instead of tumbleweed and don't make a headache with often updates and glitches which, unfortunately, present.
    Leap is probably a better choice for new users, and those that can't cope with frequent upgrades and the odd regression that might come with that.

    Please, tell me, if support of my fingerprint scanner will be available in linux, will it be included into leap also?
    I have no idea if/when such support might be available. In general, when kernel support does become available for a given device, one must upgrade to the kernel version that now provides such support.

    All user soft that installed or included into the leap gets updates as soon as new version available like at tumbleweed?
    Sorry, I don't understand what you're asking here.
    openSUSE Leap 15.0; KDE Plasma 5

    Thanks for the answers, will wait for hardware support be included into the kernel someday....
