Thinkpad touchpad issue (buttonless touchpad)

Hello, I'm trying to get my touchpad to work where if I press it, it will register a left click on the left side or a right click on the right side.

I'm using the xf86-input-libinput driver and not the xf860-input-synaptics (not supported).

Anyone have info on how to edit the driver and what options to put.

You will want to enable clickmethod buttonarea so for e.g. xinput

xinput set-probs $device-id$ "libinput Click Method Enabled" {1 0} #Disable multifinger click only enable buttonarea, use {1 1} for both

I only understand that I have to change the 40-libinput.conf file in etc, xinput is not registering my commands (i tried: sudo xinput set-prop 15 libinput Click Method Enable {10} plus other combinations and no luck.

Do you have a tip how to format my xinput command .....  xinput lis yealds: ↳ SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad                  id=23    [slave  pointer  (2)]

To change the .conf file it needs to be in the below format but I dont know what to write. My device identifier is 23?


Section "InputClass"
    Identifier "libinput touchpad catchall"
    MatchIsTouchpad "on"
    MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
    Option "VertResolution" "100"
    Option "HorizResolution" "65"
    Driver "libinput"
EndSection

Re: Thinkpad touchpad issue (buttonless touchpad)

That's all in the linked article, if you opt for xorg configuration you have to add an Option "Clickfinger" "buttonarea" to that configuration.

Post the

xinput list-props 23

for the device in [ code] [ /code] tags, without the spaces.
