Ubuntu : Touchpad and right click not working on Lenovo ideapad 320-15ISK

So these are the problems I encountered after a fresh Ubuntu 16.04 installation on my new Lenovo ideapad 320-15ISK.

  • Strange confusion between right and left click ( functioning opposite ).
  • Couldn't drag any window from touchpad.
  • Right click not working..seems to be disabled.

So below is the code snippet that work like a charm for me.

Do open the below file from terminal.

cyberkeeda@Linux-Maniac:~$ gedit /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/51-synaptics-quirks.conf 

 Copy paste the below snippet at the top of the file.

Section "InputClass"
    Identifier "touchpad catchall"
    Driver "synaptics"
    MatchIsTouchpad "on"
    MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
    Option "TapButton1" "1"
    Option "TapButton2" "2"
    Option "TapButton3" "3"
    Option "ClickPad" "true"
    Option "EmulateMidButtonTime" "0"
    Option "SoftButtonAreas" "50% 0 82% 0 0 0 0 0"

Save and restart your system, hopefully everything must work now.

Thanks to the mint forum
