So I’m going through a bit of a Linux kick lately and one of the things I ended up doing was installing Ubuntu 16.04LTS on my Dell 7370 laptop. Afterwards, I started to get sick of the scrolling with two fingers on the touch pad – I was pretty used to the “natural scrolling” function on the laptops.
All of the guides were pointing me towards opening the Mouse/Touchpad settings, but there was no checkbox for Natural scroll anywhere to be found.
User “goetzc” from askubuntu.com pointed me in the right direction:
Find the section that says “Identifier ‘touchpad catchall’
Mine now says:
Identifier “touchpad catchall”
Option “NaturalScrolling” “on”
Option “MiddleEmulation” “on”
Option “Tapping” “on”
Option “DisableWhileTyping” “on”
I just realized that I couldn’t see the option in my Mouse settings panel because I had a non-compatible theme running that ruined the visuals of many options. Oh well, live and learn I guess.
