I am using an ASUS K501UXM.300 with Ubuntu 18.04 and having problems with the touchpad.
The right physical button is identified as a left click. To be more specific, when I run
xinput --test "TOUCHPAD NAME"
and press either the left or the right button of the touchpad, I get from both the same, that is
button press 1
If I check the button listing through
xinput --get-button-map "TOUCHPAD NAME"
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12
The button 3 is activated when I use one of the options chosen with Tweaks or with the command line
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.touchpad click-method 'COMMAND'
These are the solutions of No secondary button (right click) on touchpad which "emulate" the right click, e.g. through a double-fingers tap, and are not what I am looking for. I would like to have my physical right button to work as button 3 and not as button 1.
Just for completeness,
- before upgrading to ubuntu 18.04 everything was working normal
- it's not a hardware problem since if I boot with Windows, the right click works as right click
- with an usb mouse or with an usb keyboard with touchpad the right clicks work as expected (i.e. they give me back button 3 when running the test)
Can anyone help?
EDIT: not sure how and why but it is working now, although I didn't change anything...maybe some minor update.
