Change Touchpad Corner Bindings

Postby crotonic on Sat Feb 28, 2009 1:06 am

The default install binds things like paste and right click to tapping the corners of the touchpad.
How can I change or disable these bindings?

Quoted from: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config/Input

In Ubuntu 8.10 and later, different input drivers may also expose arbitrary properties for applications to set. Synaptics touchpads are particularly configurable like this, but other devices have some more general properties.

Code: Select all
$ xinput list-props "SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad"
Device 'SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad':
        Device Enabled:         1
        Synaptics Edges:                1632, 5312, 1575, 4281
        Synaptics Finger:               25, 30, 256
        Synaptics Tap Time:             180
        Synaptics Tap Move:             220
        Synaptics Tap Durations:                180, 180, 100
        Synaptics Tap FastTap:          0
[...]

$ xinput set-int-prop "SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad" "Device Enabled" 8 0
$ xinput list-props "SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad"
Device 'SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad':
        Device Enabled:         0
        Synaptics Edges:                1632, 5312, 1575, 4281
        Synaptics Finger:               25, 30, 256
        Synaptics Tap Time:             180
        Synaptics Tap Move:             220
        Synaptics Tap Durations:                180, 180, 100
        Synaptics Tap FastTap:          0
