#StackBounty: #mouse #touchpad #synaptics #multi-touch Ubuntu 18 – Touchpad Buttons not working

Bounty: 50

I have installed Ubuntu 18 on my new Notebook

Everything works fine, except the right and left click Button of the touchpad. When I tap with one finger (left click) oder with two fingers (right click) on the touch field. It works, but not the mechanical buttons below…

$ xinput 
⎡ Virtual core pointer                      id=2    [master pointer  (3)]
⎜   ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer                id=4    [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ Logitech USB-PS/2 Optical Mouse           id=8    [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ HTIX5288:00 0911:5288 Touchpad            id=10   [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎣ Virtual core keyboard                     id=3    [master keyboard (2)]
    ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard               id=5    [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Video Bus                                 id=6    [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Power Button                              id=7    [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ USB 2.0 PC Camera: PC Camera              id=9    [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Intel HID events                          id=11   [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Intel HID 5 button array                  id=12   [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard              id=13   [slave  keyboard (3)]

I have tried to modify the synclient with


But I think this parameter are not the right ones…

Does anyone have an idea? Because every solution i find somewhere is for the problem, that the whole touchpad doesn’t work…

Best regards,
