Hi i just installed Ubuntu 17.10 and was configuring it so that i 'can work' with it.
and i stumbled over the touchpad configuration.
my touchpad has two hardware buttons for left and right click (which i both use). and i used two-finger-tap always as action for a middle mousebutton click. is this anyhow possible?
On previous versions i could easily use:
synclient TapButton2=3 TapButton3=2
but this seems not possible anymore.
$ xinput ⎡ Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)] ⎜ ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer id=4 [slave pointer (2)] ⎜ ↳ xwayland-pointer:13 id=6 [slave pointer (2)] ⎜ ↳ xwayland-relative-pointer:13 id=7 [slave pointer (2)] ⎜ ↳ xwayland-touch:13 id=9 [slave pointer (2)]
this told me that wayland is now responsible for my touch settings.
first i tried:
xinput set-button-map xwayland-pointer:13 1 3 2 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
while this allowes me to use two-finger-tap for a middle mouse button click, it also changes my
right-touchpad-button to a
middle mouse button instead of a
right mouse button.
edit 1: so i stumbled across this: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=90204
is this the last word? "wontfix"? for apparently no reason at all!?
so... is there any way to make my desired configuration somehow possible?
(I'm aware that i could probably use the fallback Xorg login, but then i'll have this problem when 18.04 arrives)
