Fix Scrolling and Trackpad issues in Chrubuntu on Samsung ARM Chromebook

February 5th, 2013 by admin Leave a reply »

I have a couple of lines here you can type into your terminal screen in Chrubuntu that will make the trackpad work as you expect, the first line:

xinput set-prop “Cypress APA Trackpad (cyapa)” “Synaptics Finger” 15 20 256

sets the sensitivity of finger presses for the touchpad to a lower amount so it works like you would expect.

The second line:

-set-prop –type=int –format=8 “Cypress APA Trackpad (cyapa)” “Synaptics Two-Finger Scrolling” 1 1

Will get the two-finger scrolling working much like on the macbook pro or macbook airs trackpad.

    How can you make this a permanent fix ? (so that you dont have to type it in each time)

    be careful with other charsets and the “-characters.

    This gave me some errors until I removed and retyped them (now with my charset / the correct one on my machine)
