I configure my touchpad with 
- tap to click and
- natural scrolling

After every reboot these settings are forgotten. When I open the
settings again, both are toggled ON. I have to toggle it off and back on
again, then it works until the next reboot.

I think also sleeping (closing lid or timeout) makes it forget the

Interestingly, I had that problem also with the previous installation
which was kubuntu. I think it was 20.04. I assumed that it was a bug in
kde, but who knows.

I am relatively sure that in the installation before the kubuntu one I
did not have the problem, but this is now really long ago, so my memory
might be failing me. It was some ubuntu installation, probably 19.10,
but maybe even older.
