• Dell XPS 13 Owners - Touchpad and Linux

    Hello Everyone,

    I wanted to ask if anyone has any special settings / tweaks they are running with their touchpad under Linux? I am using libinput gestures, and it’s nearly perfect…but I still get some slight jumpyness / jitterness at times. I am looking for anyone who has tweaked with the sensitivity / smoothness of using the touchpad…

    Can anyone share their specific tweaks / config settings if you are happy with the touchpad with your setup please?


  • @a4orce84 My 9360 (2017 kaby lake) is perfect (no jumpiness) except I’d like to enable 3 finger drag. I found a tutorial on the arch wiki, but haven’t tried it yet.

  • @LosSpamFighters - Do you have the link handy to the specific arch wiki you are looking at? Specifically, for the section on the 3 finger drag?


  • Anyone else who might have some information on how to make the trackpad a lot more smooth / less sensitive?


  • The info about your exact XPS model is not enough, I m afraid. Anyway, there s plenty of literature on the net about it. Is it of any help?
