Edge-Scrolling activation gets lost
Open, Needs More InfoPublic


Every time I open Settings/Devices/Mouse & Touchpad, the setting "Edge Scrolling" is OFF.
I can activate it and then it works fine until re-opening the settings dialog. Then it falls back to OFF.

Could you run the following commands so we can try to figure out what touchpad you have? Then I can more easily check if there are any filed kernel or libinput bugs against it:

  1. cat /proc/bus/input/devices | grep 'Touchpad'
  2. dmesg | grep -e "Touchpad" -e "Mouse"

Hi Josh
Thanks for your response.
Writing this, my laptop is in its docking station, where the setup might look a little bit weird (one Logitech Mouse connected directly, another via a PS2-KVM switch), but I think it shouldn't matter for figuring out that my laptop has a synaptics touchpad:

Currently, the edge scrolling feature is stable working even after restart, but still falls back to OFF when opening the settings dialog page containing its configuration.


This bug ist still open and present: Once I open the settings dialog, the "edge scrolling" switch falls back to OFF. Switching to ON enables the feature instantly and effectively until opening the settings dialog again.
That's annoying...

Sorry @Josh: "Needs more info" - which info is needed?
