I added this script to my startup programs to change my touchpad settings on startup:
synclient TapButton2=2 TapButton3=3
But this settings don't stay this way after startup.
I changed my script to watch the results:
synclient TapButton2=2 TapButton3=3 synclient | grep TapButton > $HOME/tmp/touchpad.txt
Results were confusing, touchpad still didn't work the way I want:
$ cat ~/tmp/touchpad.txt TapButton1 = 1 TapButton2 = 2 TapButton3 = 3
But when I ran
synclient | grep TapButton in gnome-terminal after startup the output was:
$ synclient | grep TapButton TapButton1 = 1 TapButton2 = 3 TapButton3 = 0
I tried adding delays (
sleep 10s) to my script before and/or after every line, but this didn't help too.
Therefore I assume that there is another program, script or daemon that changes touchpad settings, but I couldn't find which one.
- Which program, script or daemon can change touchpad settings?
- Is there another way to permanently change your touchpad settings? Maybe adding such script to startup is not supposed to be working.
I tried putting
Section "InputClass" Identifier "touchpad my settings" MatchIsTouchpad "on" MatchOS "Linux" MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/mouse*" Option "TapButton1" "1" Option "TapButton2" "2" Option "TapButton3" "3" Option "PalmDetect" "on" EndSection
/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/99-my.conf. It didn't help as well.
