Couple of issues with the touchpad and trackpoint for my Dell Latitude laptop (Ubuntu 12.04). First, there's no "Touchpad" tab on the Mouse settings in system settings. I'd like to be able to use 2-finger scrolling on the touchpad (and also adjust the sensitivity), and to enable middle-mouse-button scrolling on the trackpoint.
synclient gives an error:
Couldn't find synaptics properties. No synaptics driver loaded?.
The relevent output of
⎡ Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)] ⎜ ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer id=4 [slave pointer (2)] ⎜ ↳ GlidePoint Virtual Touchpad id=13 [slave pointer (2)]
I found a file in
/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/ that has code to enable middle mouse scrolling, but it looks like it's only triggered if
TrackPoint|DualPoint Stick is matched in the
xinput list? Oddly, the middle-mouse scrolling seems to work only in Chrome's pdf viewer, but no where else.
I tried using
gpointer-device-settings but it crashes/segfaults every time I run it. I've tried a couple of things about ALPS drivers, but those seem to come into play when the Glidepoint device shows up in
xinput as regular mouse, which I don't think is the case here.
