I just installed and updated a Ubuntu Xenial with Unity on Dell Vostro 14 3446 laptop. Earlier, I have used Ubuntu Trusty and Linux Mint 17 and 18 on this same laptop and the touchpad has never given any problems. Now, it has both vertical and horizontal scrolling enabled by default and I can't find a way to disable the horizontal scrolling.
$ xinput -list ⎡ Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)] ⎜ ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer id=4 [slave pointer (2)] ⎜ ↳ DLL0662:00 06CB:2985 id=12 [slave pointer (2)] ⎜ ↳ SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad id=14 [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)] ↳ Video Bus id=8 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Power Button id=9 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Sleep Button id=10 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Integrated_Webcam_HD id=11 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard id=13 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Dell WMI hotkeys id=15 [slave keyboard (3)]
This is what I have tried yet:
xserver-xorg-input-libinputand restarted. This resulted in Tap-to-Click getting disabled and the Touchpad settings disappearing.
libinputwas uninstalled after this and synaptic driver reinstalled.
synclient HorizTwoFingerScroll=0. After doing this,
synclient | grep -i horizprints this:
HorizScrollDelta = 110 HorizEdgeScroll = 0 HorizTwoFingerScroll = 0 HorizHysteresis = 27
And yet, horizontal scrolling is still on.
Is there any way to disable this? Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon gave an option to disable it, so it's definitely possible. But how?
