I have had Antergos since many months ago and no problems so far. But since yesterday the window splits into 8 mini windows since it stars to analyse everything (forget the proper name, when list everything if it has failed or not), then to the log-in windows until thw proper DE.
I have not installed anything out of the usual updates, so I don’t know what to do to fix it, I have become rusty with Linux and forgot how to proper do things xD
@just Yes, it is the only DE in Antergos.
And it was very unusual this mistake. Linux distros usually fix the touchpad (because in Windows didn’t scroll). But well, I gotta get used to tweak it at the moment (even though it does not initiate at startup, don’t know how to do, so my settings persist).
Apparently, when I use that program, it changed temporarily the Delta settings to positive, so, I decided to edit them in the 50-synaptics.conf, but they don’t change to positive (not with blank value, negative sign value or positive sign value).
EDITED: I undone everything I did. Installed dconf-editor, go to /org/gnome/settings-daemon/plugins/mouse/ and unchecked the active sign as sudo. And everything works fine, even after reboot.
@just It works, but has the same scrolling problem.
It can’t be a hardware problem. I have a Deepin partition installed, and there works just fine. Also, today I erased a Manjaro partition to install this Antergos, and in Manjaro worked fine also.
It must be some config file in the system, which I’m not aware of.
Yep, I don’t know why I installed it if my touchpad does work, but the scrolling is just inverted.
And I don’t use GNOME either, this is my first distro with that DE, I’m usually more of a XFCE or MATE guy, but oh well.
Also, I don’t know how to “enable” my touchpad, if I’m using it, it is enabled, isn’t it?
This is my synclient. I don’t know if it serves you a purpose. I saw the TouchpadOff=2, and that means it is disabled for scrolling and tapping (I don’t know what else is there xD my laptop is kind of old). I don’t know where the file is for the synclient.

I also found strange that my Delta values are negative, meanwhile my scrolling acts the opposite.

The only file I keep editing to see if something changes is the 50-synaptics.conf. But no change at the moment.
It is not that big of a deal, but it is frustrating at some points.
Since I installed it (also when I tried it live), when I scroll vertically with my touchpad at the right edge, it does it inversely. (Up is down and down is up)
I tried xinput set button map, and inverted 4 and 5… but that does not work in all windows and well, I should set it as a bash startup bash, too much work for semi functionality. I can’t find any “natural scroll” settings either.
Can you guide me on how to fix it?
P.S. I’m in Gnome. I don’t know if I have to edit some Xorg files, which I don’t feel that prepared to do it blindly.
