I'm running Kubuntu 16.04 with the newest kernel on my SP3. Everything works fine except the touchpad, there is no option to activate two-finger-scrolling and 2-finger-tap-right-click.

I've found that source, but it seems to be on 4.3. and I'm using 4.6.x.!


But maybe someone have already tried it and could tell me, whether the touchpad works with 2-finger-scrolling?

Any other suggestions? Could someone help me?

  • What touchpad are you using? With synaptic touchpads you should may be able to do it - what is the output of synclient -l? – Wilf Jun 8 '16 at 20:43
  • I'm using the Type Cover 3. Everything works fine, but in System Settings > Input Devices it says that no synaptics backend is found. synclient -l says Couldn't find synaptics properties. No synaptics driver loaded?. – YvanEhtNioj Jun 9 '16 at 8:01
