Synclient and Persistance

Post by Stryke_the_Orc » 2015/01/12 17:52:50

Hello everyone.

I'm sorry if this has been asked/answered or is in the wrong place, search doesn't appear to be working for me at the moment. Mods, feel free to move/close as needed.
I'm having some trouble with my synaptics touchpad, the vertical scrolling doesn't persist through reboot. I've used the

Code: Select all

synclient VertEdgeScroll=1
command to enable it, added this line to the /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf file, also tried adding it to the .bashrc and .bash_profile files, yet nothing allows it to persist through reboots. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

If you're editing /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf then you need to be adding a line into the first stanza that contains Driver "synaptics" of the format:

Code: Select all

        Option "FingerLow" "0"
So in your case that would be Option "VertEdgeScroll" "1"
