Linux is a kernel.

Linux can't do this even with 3rd party drivers.

>> No.71310337


that image is a perfect example of "just because something can be done does not mean that it's a good idea".

I just made the mistake of going to the WashingtonExaminer website again, after forgetting that the nerd who designs that web page probably has 7-finger gestures programmed into his gentoo workstation. It started two fucking videos as soon as the page loaded, and it was a fucking text article, not a video link. I managed to stop one of the videos, but the other one had no controls that I could find. Probably needed to put my feet on my touchpad to kill it.

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.

Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called "Linux", and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project.

There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine's resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called "Linux" distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux.

libinput is unusable on my **50 chinkpad
whenever I move the cursor, it stutters and lags
I assume this is happening because of hysteresis but I haven't been able to find a way to turn it off
also, no kinetic scroll which makes scrolling awful

welp, kde is finally getting configuration hooked up for libinput+X, of course das foot could but wont offer such control.
i find it bemusing to use "native" considering in windows you need to slog through driver supplied control panels to tweak pads

>> No.71311715

driver supplied control panels are better
for mine to work as it did in windows, I had to install synaptics, create a config file on /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d, and go read the manual for synaptics

No, it even works on a toaster if you can install latest Windows on it.

Bases windows precision touchpad support. OEM drivers suck ass and gatekeep features. Any laptop can get this if you install generic drivers manually. I did it because in the year 2019 Asus still thinks 30% CPU usage for scrolling is a feature.
