I have a touchpad on my laptop that supports two-finger scrolling. I checked the Deepin control center for the setting but I can only find natural scrolling. Can I enable horizontal two-finger scrolling in Deepin?

  • I'm using Ubuntu 17.10 official. I just installed Deepin alongside the Gnome desktop environment. Commented Jan 11, 2018 at 17:13

These settings are not in the control center by default. The solution is to edit the setting in the Dconf Editor program. Run the following command:

sudo apt install dconf-editor

Ender your password and hit Enter or Return on your keyboard.

Next, open Dconf Editor either by running dconf-editor in the terminal or opening it in the application menu.

Now you need to navigate to com>deepin>dde>touchpad and enable the option that says "horiz-scroll-enabled." It should look like this:

Now you can use horizontal scrolling!
