Hey,

I want to edit only the vertical sensitivity of my touchpad, because it is way too low. Horizontally I can reach both edges of the screen with one swipe, but vertically it is just half the screen. Changing overall sensitivity with gpointing-device-settings doesn’t do the trick. I’ve tried to configure the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf accordingly. I first tried a resolution of 150, then 300. It does not take any effect. It says above not to edit, but in Arch it was always done like this. Does Cinnamon or Antergos override these settings? Where can I change the value?

Thanks!
