X11 ChromiumOS touchpad driver ported to Linux

This driver depends on libgestures: and libevdevc:


./configure --prefix=/usr make make install Configuring

You will need to copy over the config files for the driver to the appropriate locations. The config files are in the xorg-conf directory in this repo. For a trackpad, copy over the 20-mouse.conf, 40-touchpad-cmt.conf, and a 50-touchpad-cmt file that matches your device to the xorg.conf.d directory for your system (/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d on Ubuntu Saucy).

If you use the Ubuntu package, the config files are installed in /usr/share/xf86-input-cmt.

You will also need to move your old config file out of the way or remove the previous driver. If you were using the synaptics driver, move the synaptics.conf (/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf on Ubuntu) to something other than .conf or remove the synaptics driver.

Options can be modified with xinput. You can list all the properties available to change:

xinput --list-props 12

Where 12 is the id of your trackpad. It may or may not be 12. You can list all of your devices to find which one is your trackpad:


Place the options you wish to change in the touchpad config file that you copied over to /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d.


There is an ubuntu ppa with the latest releases here: .

You can’t perform that action at this time.
