I have an ultrabook from a computer-building factory (it's not name brand),
and I run Ubuntu 14.04.
I lack options for deactivating touchpad while typing and activate two-finger-scroll and I am also unable to use synclient to edit the touchpad features.
Here's the output from xinput:
ina@laptop:~$ xinput ⎡ Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)] ⎜ ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer id=4 [slave pointer (2)] ⎜ ↳ ImPS/2 Generic Wheel Mouse id=12 [slave pointer (2)] ⎣ Virtual core keyboard id=3 [master keyboard (2)] ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard id=5 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Power Button id=6 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Video Bus id=7 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Power Button id=8 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Sleep Button id=9 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ USB 2.0 Camera id=10 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard id=11 [slave keyboard (3)]
This is what happens when I try to run synclient:
ina@laptop:~$ synclient Couldn't find synaptics properties. No synaptics driver loaded?
When i check the software center I can see that i have this package installed:
List of things I've tried:
- Reinstalled xserver-xorg-input-synaptic-lts-vivid
- Installed both tpconfig, kde-touchpad and gpointing-device-settings
- Copied 50-synaptics.conf from /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d (but I had to create this folder).
