For vertical "natural" scrolling .. if:
Code: [Select]
synclient VertScrollDelta=-111
gives you what you want, run:
Code: [Select]
sudo pluma /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf
and change the section:-
Code: [Select]
Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "touchpad catchall"
        Driver "synaptics"
        MatchIsTouchpad "on"
# This option is recommend on all Linux systems using evdev, but cannot be
# enabled by default. See the following link for details:
# http://who-t.blogspot.com/2010/11/how-to-ignore-configuration-errors.html
      MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
EndSection
to:-
Code: [Select]
Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "touchpad catchall"
        Driver "synaptics"
        MatchIsTouchpad "on"
# This option is recommend on all Linux systems using evdev, but cannot be
# enabled by default. See the following link for details:
# http://who-t.blogspot.com/2010/11/how-to-ignore-configuration-errors.html
      MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
Option "VertScrollDelta" "-111"
EndSection
SAVE the file, then log off/on (or reboot).




For horizontal "natural" scrolling, if:
Code: [Select]
synclient HorizScrollDelta=-111
gives you what you want, run:
Code: [Select]
sudo pluma /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf
and change the section:-
Code: [Select]
Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "touchpad catchall"
        Driver "synaptics"
        MatchIsTouchpad "on"
# This option is recommend on all Linux systems using evdev, but cannot be
# enabled by default. See the following link for details:
# http://who-t.blogspot.com/2010/11/how-to-ignore-configuration-errors.html
      MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
EndSection
to:-
Code: [Select]
Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "touchpad catchall"
        Driver "synaptics"
        MatchIsTouchpad "on"
# This option is recommend on all Linux systems using evdev, but cannot be
# enabled by default. See the following link for details:
# http://who-t.blogspot.com/2010/11/how-to-ignore-configuration-errors.html
      MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
Option "HorizScrollDelta" "-111"
EndSection
SAVE the file, then log off/on (or reboot).




For both vertical and horizontal "natural" scrolling, if:
Code: [Select]
synclient VertScrollDelta=-111
and:
Code: [Select]
synclient HorizScrollDelta=-111
gives you what you want, run:
Code: [Select]
sudo pluma /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf
and change the section:-
Code: [Select]
Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "touchpad catchall"
        Driver "synaptics"
        MatchIsTouchpad "on"
# This option is recommend on all Linux systems using evdev, but cannot be
# enabled by default. See the following link for details:
# http://who-t.blogspot.com/2010/11/how-to-ignore-configuration-errors.html
      MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
EndSection
to:-
Code: [Select]
Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "touchpad catchall"
        Driver "synaptics"
        MatchIsTouchpad "on"
# This option is recommend on all Linux systems using evdev, but cannot be
# enabled by default. See the following link for details:
# http://who-t.blogspot.com/2010/11/how-to-ignore-configuration-errors.html
      MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
Option "VertScrollDelta" "-111"
Option "HorizScrollDelta" "-111"
EndSection
SAVE the file, then log off/on (or reboot).

Hi,
thanks for the advice, works :) solved.

I have the right side of the touchpad reserved for scrolling. Changing the vertscrolldelta to a negative value to enable "natural" two-finger scrolling also affects this one-finger scroll area.

Is there a way to have "natural" two-finger scrolling + one-finger standard scrolling enabled at the same time? just curious.
