right-click not working on Debian 9

Postby apcrcom » September 1st, 2017, 3:12 am

I have had a look at
https://wiki.debian.org/SynapticsTouchpad

also

https://manpages.debian.org/stretch/xse ... .4.en.html

queries give this output:

egrep -i 'synap|alps|etps|elan' /proc/bus/input/devices
N: Name="SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad"




/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/40-libinput.conf

# Match on all types of devices but tablet devices and joysticks
Section "InputClass"
Identifier "libinput pointer catchall"
MatchIsPointer "on"
MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
Driver "libinput"
EndSection

Section "InputClass"
Identifier "libinput keyboard catchall"
MatchIsKeyboard "on"
MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
Driver "libinput"
EndSection

Section "InputClass"
Identifier "libinput touchpad catchall"
MatchIsTouchpad "on"
MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
Driver "libinput"
EndSection

Section "InputClass"
Identifier "libinput touchscreen catchall"
MatchIsTouchscreen "on"
MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
Driver "libinput"
EndSection

Section "InputClass"
Identifier "libinput tablet catchall"
MatchIsTablet "on"
MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
Driver "libinput"
EndSection


I tried adding "buttonmapping" "1 2 3", but did not work

Please advise

From the debian Wiki for the Synaptics Touchpad found here:

Change to libinput Xorg driver in Debian 9 "Stretch"

The synaptic Xorg driver in being superseded by the newer libinput driver, which can provide lower-level access to multi touch events to clients, but is currently lacking some features found in the older driver.

You can make the synaptics driver take precedence over libinput by copying /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf into /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d, so as to make it take precendence over the libinput configuration file found at /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/90-libinput.conf.

Hope this helps,
