My scrolling wasn't 'natural' so...

What can I learn about my device?  Let's see what X thinks is connected:

xinput -list

And then check the properties for my touchpad (id 13):

xinput -list-props 13

and there, pretty clearly:

libinput Natural Scrolling Enabled (283): 0

so let's try changing that:

xinput -set-prop 'AlpsPS/2 ALPS GlidePoint' "libinput Natural Scrolling Enabled" 1

.. and now i got natural scroll! (ideally id would work instead of full name, but does it?)

While i was thinking about it, also played with the acceleration property, deciding .3 was better than 0.

To make the changes permanent (ie. set on login), they need to be saved in X session config file which by default is:

~/.xsessionrc

Cheers!
