I just recently upgraded the F25 on this laptop (Dell Inspiron 1520) to F26. It mostly went well, except that I seem to have lost the ability to use the vertical scrolling part of my touchpad. I'm running the MATE desktop, so the first thing I did was to check the mouse configuration in System->Preferences->Mouse. In the touchpad tab, I see that Vertical Edge Scrolling is indeed checked, and un-checking it and re-checking it does not bring the functionality back. I can use two-fingered vertical scrolling (it also is checked), but I am not an expert, and it seems to have the side effect of backing up if I move my second finger down into the horizontal scroll area of the touchpad when trying to do a large vertical scroll.
Fedora switched from using the synaptics touchpad driver to libinput(?) by default. Unfortunately, the libinput driver doesn't appear to have all the features that the synaptics driver does. At least in Fedora 27, you can uninstall the xorg-x11-drv-libinput package and install xorg-x11-drv-synaptics-legacy. I'm not sure how long this will last. -- ======================================================================== Ian Pilcher arequip...@gmail.com -------- "I grew up before Mark Zuckerberg invented friendship" -------- ======================================================================== _______________________________________________ users mailing list -- email@example.com To unsubscribe send an email to users-le...@lists.fedoraproject.org
