• X11 no multi touch | Wayland no Pen - what now


    First of all hello :)
    I’m currently in a weird spot:
    I have a lenovo ThinkPad Y370 - a 2 in 1 with touchscreen and Pen - running Antergos Gnome
    After installation basically everything worked but performance, especially when using gestures were kinda laggy. So i switched to gdm for Wayland. So far everything worked and performance was great. Now the catch: My Pen is, apart from gtk3 apps, useless.
    A known issue with Wacom Digitizers and Wayland …
    Only solution -> back to Xorg

    The Problem: Currently the touchscreen only recognizes one finger, meaning no gestures and zooming.
    I already confirmed that lightdm seems not to be the issue and reinstalling xorg changes nothing.

    I’m changing between x11 and wayland through editing “WaylandEnable=true” in /etc/gdm/custom.conf

    if you need any more information let me know
    I already searched but found nothing really useful - maybe someone can help
    I really want to use booth features…

  • @remote you can choose “gnome” for wayland and “gnome Xorg” for X11 inside GDM ;)

    Archwiki on Yoga:#
    TouchScreen and Stylus
    Touchscreen works with the Wacom driver (package: xf86-input-wacom). Also using the Stylus, only one of the two buttons on the pen is usable.

    Can you do this for me?

  • I do

    local/xf86-input-wacom 0.34.2-1
    
    • and just to clarify i already researched a lot about wayland and pen support …
      it seems like at this point in time the wacom pen is just not working.
      Thats why i switched back to x11 .
      The problem i think, is some configuration for x11 that changed (after installation multitouch worked)
  • ls /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/
    

    show the configs

  • 00-keyboard.conf  99-killX.conf
    

    thats wired last time i checked there was a 40-po*.conf

    is there something like “dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg” on arch?

  • Fixed it:
    I just removed basically everything xf86-input*

    removed xf86-input-evdev
    removed xf86-input-wacom
    removed xf86-input-synaptics
    

    Having just xf86-input-libinput installed everything works using X11
