[SOLVED] GNOME crashes when using double finger scroll (libinput)

Hi there!

Recently I updated my laptop and I noticed several changes related to the xorg-* packages. Unfortunately, after the last update, my computer started to crash every time I use the double-finger scroll on my touchpad (it doesn't happen immediately, it's rather random – lat's say that, if I start to scroll casually, GNOME crashes within 30 seconds and sends me back to GDM). But after disabling the double finger scroll (in GNOME settings) everything seems to work fine.

I use libinput and my laptop is a HP Pavilion 15-e056sl Notebook PC.

Anyone with the same problem?

for me i solved it by installing the xf86-input-synaptics wich replaced the default libinput
if you have a synaptic touchpad this may work for you

A bug has already been reported - https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/57523

As mentioned on https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Touchpad_Synaptics
"Warning: xf86-input-synaptics is no longer actively updated."

It didn't work for me. It seems that GNOME keeps using libinput even when xf86-input-synaptics is installed.

Just as a follow up, another bug report has been logged against libinput 1.10.2 which indicates an upstream fix...

edit: 1.10.3 has just arrived in Extra.

I believe this thread is about the same issue.

It is indeed. On my laptop updating to version 1.10.3 solved the issue (I just marked this thread as “solved”). For further details, as someone said in this other thread, it seems that a patch is available for testing/review.
