In the beginning the touchpad was working good. After a few weeks there is a problem with using the touchpad. Where the finger is used many times, the black is blinking ( fatt? ), the other black where the finger is not been presented is working normal.
The blinking problem zone can give a click command when it is not allowed.
Is there a software terminal command for not clicking with the move pad, only with the left or right button of the touch pad or can i use a product to clean the touch pad?
Thank you for any advise.
Seen the same thing: it seems that if there is even a little bit of dirt or oil on the touchpad, that part stops functioning correctly. From not registering movement to unwanted clicks.
Any tips on how to clean or fix it?
Rolling down the sensitivity works perfectly! Awesome!
Dear Rene Richarz, I would like to change the scroll direction of the touch pad on my pi-top. It seems to work the opposite of my Lenovo and Dell laptops. Make switching between them problematic.
Can you post or email me a hint as to how to do this direction change :-)
Thank you, that worked great! Sort of --
I at first entered NaturalScrolling "true" as an "Option" in the pointer section. That followed the format of the items that were there. However, after a reboot, I could not log into the RPi, and all paths from the pi-top Dashboard let to a login request. I had to re-flash the SD and start over.
After I did some searching on X11 scroll, I saw that some "Options" are entered as:
Option "NaturalScrolling" "true"
This works correctly. I am amazed at the profound ramifications of entering the wrong thing. Basically hosed the system. Wow.
This is probably a silly question, but what are the actual "gestures" on the buttonless touchpad that facilitate equivalent mouse actions? I've used touchpads and touchscreens elsewhere and those seem more "discoverable" somehow.
For example, what is:
- Button 3 (generally wheel?)
Any other supported gestures?
Until I can find documentation for this, it's more comfortable to pop a wireless HID dongle into the internal USB, and just use a wireless mouse.
