I installed synaptiks touchpad recently from http://http.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/s/synaptiks/kde-config-touchpad_0.8.1-2_all.deb

However, it doesn't seem to have any real improvements that I noticed over the touchpad "program" (?) that came with Ubuntu Unity, not to mention apparently you can't activate natural scrolling on it. So I want to either uninstall it (preferably), or figure out how to use natural scrolling with it. Now, this is going to sound like a very stupid problem, but I have no clue how I would uninstall it. Normally if I had installed it with apt I would just do apt remove.

I installed this from the debian file with the Ubuntu software-center, however now I can't figure out how to make software-center uninstall it again. I doesn't seem to show up on the installed section (unless I'm looking for the wrong thing), not as synaptiks, nor as kde-config-touchpad. So I'm a bit lost. I can't seem to disable it or remove it.

Running ubuntu 14.04

  • Have you tried sudo dpkg -r kde-config-touchpad_0.8.1-2_all.deb ? – Liso Dec 11 '16 at 18:20
  • The correct command is sudo dpkg -r kde-config-touchpad – Pilot6 Dec 11 '16 at 18:39
  • Oh I thought I did, but apparently not. It worked, thanks :) – Marses Dec 11 '16 at 23:07
